Roane State donates ACT prep, college success book to Morgan County high schools
Roane State Community College has donated ACT preparation books and college success books to all high schools in Morgan County.
The set of books includes flash cards for ACT preparation, books that provide ACT test-taking tips and exercises, and books about how students can excel in college.
“This enhances student learning with more rigor, engages students to determine their careers and prepares students for college and to be successful in life,” said Dallas Davis, principal of Central High School of Wartburg.
The donation was made possible by a Tennessee Board of Regents (TBR) Access and Diversity Grant awarded to Roane State in 2010. The grant allowed Roane State to start a pilot program called Prepare, Learn and Navigate (PLAN). Project goals include raising awareness about postsecondary education, helping students avoid roadblocks in the admissions and registration process, and providing students with tools to optimize success.
The PLAN project has involved Harriman High School sophomores, juniors and seniors, and the grant covers costs associated with workshops to help students assess their skills and career interests, campus visits, cultural activities, ACT preparation, and many other activities.
Roane State partners in the PLAN program with the Tennessee Technology Center (TTC) in Harriman, Harriman High School and Worldwide Interactive Network (WIN), a Kingston-based education technology firm.
The book donations to all high schools in the counties Roane State serves are an extension of the PLAN initiative.
