The SWTJC Uvalde chapter of Phi Theta Kappa will be asking students to "Pledge to Completion" on Thursday, Nov. 17, in the Matthews Student Center.
"Statistics show the surest way for anyone to land a job in their chosen field is to finish college and earn a degree or certificate," Eta Beta Chapter advisor Barbara Blair said.
On Nov. 17, members of the Eta Beta Chapter will be asking other students to join them in pledging to complete their associate's degree or certificate before leaving SWTJC to further their education or enter the job market.
Pledge sign-up sheets will be available in the Matthews Student Center from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Phi Theta Kappa members are serving as the student arm of The Community College Completion Corps, a national education initiative.
In April 2010 leaders of six national organizations representing the nation's 1,200 community colleges signed a call to action pledging to increase student completion rates by 50% over the next decade. Phi Theta Kappa was the only student organization asked to participate.
