East Carolina University’s College of Education hosted more than 400 eastern North Carolina sixth through twelfth graders in two events designed to challenge those students to maximize their potential.
The Nov. 14 and Nov. 28 AVID Days held by the Office of Professional Development and Student Outreach encouraged underachieving students to attend college by providing opportunities for them to explore college access options.
ECU faculty and students interacted with the visitors in sessions on such topics as college admission, service-learning, academic success, personalities and leadership development.
Seventeen public middle or high schools were represented at the events.
