August 9, 2019

Nearly 40 students who participated in the Eagles RISE Summer Academy were honored and celebrated during the Take Flight Symposium.

During this event, students presented their vision boards and e-portfolios, displaying their future hopes and dreams. They also shared how the Eagles RISE Summer Academy program not only inspired them, but it helped prepare them for their time at TCC. Several students also received awards for special achievements during the summer.

The six-week summer academy held two classes including a math immersion and student engagement seminar. The academy connected first-generation, minority and low-income students with faculty, staff and resources across TCC’s campus to help them develop skills that achieve a successful academic, social and personal transition to the College.
