DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — The student advising experience at Wallace Community College just got better.
After receiving a $2.1 million dollar grant from the U.S Department of Education. Wallace Community College staff plans to enhance the student experience by hiring more counselors and staff members, thus creating more meaningful relationships with the students.
The better connection sets them up for success, according to Director of Student Services Ryan Spry. They are further preparing them for success in the real world.
Wallace was one of the three institutions in the state to be chosen for this grant.
“We want to make sure they’re set for success here but then this grant will also give them some career resources, which will help them in our community as they leave us. I think it reinforces our commitment to student success,” Spry said.
They are showing students that they do care, Spry told WDHN News, which is their motto.
