lvillekids 500

MADISONVILLE, Ky. (7/17/13) – Madisonville Community College (MCC) is pleased to announce that the TRIO Talent Search federally funded program has received its third year of a five year funding cycle for the school year beginning September 1, 2013. The annual level funded award of $ 329,727 is a reduction of 5.2% from the second year funding due to the federal mandated sequestration. Implemented at MCC in 1985, the TRiO Talent Search or Educational Talent Search has consistently met all annual program objectives for the eligible middle and high school participants.

TRiO Talent Search is a federally funded program for middle and high school students from Crittenden, Hopkins, and Muhlenberg counties with the office located at Madisonville Community College. The program provides workshops, small group and individual meetings during the school year that prepare the program participants for college graduation. The 2011-2016 TRIO Talent Search grant focus is to not only prepare eligible students for college enrollment but for college graduation. An emphasis is placed on rigorous curriculum success to lay the foundation for baccalaureate degree completion. Student participation in TRiO Talent Search has a direct impact on participant performance with the Kentucky Department of Education’s accountability system and other state initiatives. College and career readiness and academic growth across all student populations are central elements of the TRiO Talent Search programming.

The Talent Search theme: “Take the lead…Be Prepared…Graduate from college!” is emphasized with regular in-school group workshops, individual and small group sessions, college campus tours, cultural exposure, and coordination with in-school and summer academic enrichment opportunities. A recent summer enrichment activity involved 46 of the MCC TRIO Talent Search middle school participants traveling to Louisville, KY on June 5 for their Summer College and Cultural Day Trip. While in the city, students had the opportunity to tour the beautiful campus of the University of Louisville, including buildings such as the J.B. Speed School, College of Education and Human Development, Student Activities Center, and the President’s Office. After touring the campus, students then had the opportunity to take a ride down the Ohio River on the Spirit of Jefferson riverboat and enjoyed a delicious lunch along with the scenery down the river. The day trip was very enjoyable and the students had an awesome experience!
