College Application Week was a success!


Senior Jisel R. poses in the photobooth with Johnson & Wales University representative, Dana Propst.

Reports pulled from CFNC say 252 West Charlotte seniors applied to at least one college during College Application Week! 163 seniors applied to CPCC! CFNC has had a few glitches so these numbers could be off by a few due to technical errors but these are still phenomenal outcomes!

Students were also able to speak to representatives from Johnson & Wales University, UNC Greensboro, East Carolina University, UNC Chapel Hill, and Cabarrus College of Health Sciences during the week.

Thank you for all of your help in encouraging our students to take this next step in planning for their future. I overheard students say some teachers even designated a portion of class time to applying to colleges! I know interrupting class times can be a headache but I hope you found it was worth it.


Students attend an East Carolina University information session in the Auditorium.

I want to give a special shoutout to guidance for volunteering to help; Ms. Keima Davis for gathering UNC Charlotte students to help our scholars apply after school; and the English IV teachers for bringing their classes down as a whole. I also want to give a distinguished shoutout to Ms. Johnson for reserving us space in the media center and providing all students with charged laptops!
