offering drive-through Patriot Day for students since they have not had the opportunity to visit campus due to the pandemic. “This is a wonderful opportunity to welcome our students back to campus after almost five months,” said Reed. “We want to get them excited, answer any questions they may have, and show them how much they mean to us.”

Even if students have not completed the registration process for the fall semester, the College encourages them to take advantage of virtual registration at https://www.nwscc.edu/2020-summerfall-registration or attend the drive-through Patriot Day.

“We know some of our students may have internet issues or other circumstances that prevent them from registering online,” stated Reed. “We want to help them through this difficult time in any way we can.”

To register for the event and ensure your chance to win the $250 scholarship, students can visit https://calendly.com/crystalreed/patriotday?month=2020-08. Visitors will need to enter through the entrance by gym and security gate on the Shoals Campus and the main entrance on the Phil Campbell campus. There they will receive guidance on how to proceed through each campus.

NW-SCC fall semester classes begin Monday, August 17. For more information, please contact Dr. Crystal Reed, Assistant Dean of Student Success at cingle@nwscc.edu or visit nwscc.edu.
