SKYCTC to Host Governor’s Minority Student College Preparation Program Events

Southcentral Kentucky Community and Technical College (SKYCTC) will host multiple events for middle school students involved in the Governor’s Minority Student College Preparation Program (GMSCPP) June 9th – 23rd at the College’s Main Campus on Loop Drive in Bowling Green.

Strong Teaching Encouraging Minds (STEM) is the name of SKYCTC’s summer enrichment program for the Governor’s Minority Student College Preparation Program S.T.E.M. (Science/Technology/Engineering/Math) initiative.

SKYCTC’s goal is to enrich the lives of middle school students in grades 6, 7, & 8 by introducing them to the world of S.T.E.M. and other subjects that will enhance their education and career choices.

This year’s students are referred by the Bowling Green Housing Authority, Trinity Full Gospel Baptist Church, and State Street Baptist Church.

GMSCPP is in its 7th year at SKYCTC. It has been in effect with the state universities since the late 1980’s and KCTCS since the early 2000’s.  The program has been very successful in enriching the lives of hundreds of young students throughout our state.

“It has been my pleasure for the past years to lead this initiative at the college and to see these young minds light up with the realization of possibilities,” says Eugenia Scott, Associate Professor of Communications at SKYCTC and coordinator of the GMSCPP program at the College. It is rewarding to work these students and our instructors who volunteer their time to teach these young people.
