Excelencia in Education has released “Latino College Completion in 50 States”. The report reveals that BCTC and Jefferson Community and Technical College lead Kentucky in graduating Latino students at the associate’s degree level.
Mark Simonds, a BCTC student from Nicholasville, will be honored at an upcoming Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) Honor Society conference. He is one of 30 Phi Theta Kappa members, selected from 450 national and international nominees, to be honored with the 2014 Distinguished Chapter Officer Award.
One of the best ways to get middle school students interested in college is to bring college to them, and that’s what BCTC is doing through a partnership with Leestown Middle School.
The U.S. Department of Education has approved BCTC as one of a hand full of post-secondary institutions offering a Comprehensive Transition Program (CTP) for students with intellectual disabilities.
