HCC STUDENTSSuper Sunday Scholars at HCC Feb. 23, 2014HOPKINSVILLE, Ky. (2/27/14) – Hopkinsville Community College held its fourth annual Super Sunday event on Sunday, Feb. 23 at Cedar Grove Missionary Baptist Church.

The college’s faculty and staff attended the morning service then held a college fair to share information about the college planning process, admissions, degree programs and financial aid.

For the first time, HCC honored Super Sunday Scholars.

These students are 11th and 12th graders from the local high schools who were nominated by school officials and church leadership for their excellence in academics as well as community and church involvement.

The awards ceremony featured 25 students receiving awards, 19 of whom attended the event at Cedar Grove Missionary Baptist Church. Cedar Grove’s youth choir performed various songs.

The Super Sunday Scholars were Montraele Jones, Nathan Colon, Mia Davie, Briana Proctor, Kendra Woodard, Demtria Snorton, LaCacia Ellis, Keith Hahone, Jr., J.T. Walker, Christopher Reese, Ariana Kendrick, Susie Croney, Dannika Prater, Nile Shemwell, Tatyana Baker, Alexis Harrell, Cyamon Walker, Curtris Stevenson, Kenyata Allen, Tanaisa Childs, and Timothy Cook-Aguirre.

HCC and each of the other 15 KCTCS colleges and System office partnered with African-American churches in their communities to host events for prospective college students and their families.

“We’ve been fortunate to develop strong partnership with our local churches,” stated Tracey Folden-Stewart, HCC’s director of diversity & leadership. “The church environment naturally has a nurturing atmosphere that promotes growth. We are glad to have the opportunity to talk with the congregation about what a difference education can make and how one can obtain a credential right here in our community.”

The KCTCS Super Sunday event is patterned after a highly successful program at California State University, now in its ninth year, which is credited with substantially increasing the college-going rate of African-American students in California.
