In 1937, Meridian Community College (MCC) was founded as a part of Meridian High School in the local school system. In 1965, the College also formerly known as Meridian Junior College moved from its original location to its present location. In 1970, the College merged with the historically T.J. Harris Junior College according to a federal court order to the Meridian Municipal Separate School System. There were more than 400 students and faculty joined the MJC campus. In 1980, Meridian Junior College established its own district and Board of Trustees.

Do you ever think that community college is similar to high school? Do you feel community college is easier than high school? Does it seems to you that it won’t be any rules to adhere to? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you will be in a big trouble.

Also, there are lots of things that students don’t know about them in the community college; especially in their first year.

Originally many schools, including some post-secondary colleges, were designed as factories to train workers (Ackoff & Greenberg, 2008). With a focus on reading, writing, and arithmetic, individuals gained skills needed to complete robotic instructions, but unfortunately, not problem-solving techniques. This concept is still present in many of our schooling systems today including some of classes and graduation tracks at Your State Community College (YSCC). Founded in 1968, YSCC serves about 6,000 students preparing them for jobs in both academic and trade careers. Unfortunately, many of the students who enter the school do not score high enough on the placement examination and need remedial courses prior to taking college-level Math
Initially, I would like to list all of the qualities I shall bring to the Student Council. I am very respectful of my peers and teachers. I have numerous academic accomplishments which I believe a president must not only be a good role model for the rest of the student body but also lead in academics as well. In addition to my academic skills I developed leadership skills that I have obtained from Beta and 4-H. In these clubs I have learned how to communicate and work in groups I am very flexible at taking on any task and conforming to each and every job when it is needed of me.
Of the three organizations, I am involved in at UNC Charlotte, the one I am going to write about is Lynch Hall Council. Since Lynch Hall is an all freshmen dorm, all the Hall Council positions were available. At first, I was not going to apply to join Hall Council because I was running for Freshman class president. I am not sure what exactly changed my mind about applying to join Hall Council, but I did. Other students in the learning community found out that they received positions on Hall Council, and I had not. I thought that I just had not received any position at all. Then a few days later, I received an email stating that my email was over looked and that I had been selected as President. I was very excited to start my term as President

I am applying to this opportunity because this it gives me a chance to succeed in life. Being able to go to this college it would give me a better chance to get a better job then going to a community college. I am choosing this college because I get to move far away from here.

I've always dreamed of moving far away getting a fresh start and meeting new people.
“Okay, here we are” The man in the moving truck says as he hops out of the truck to help me unload. “Thanks for the ride.” I said shortly as he opened up the hatch and started unloading my furniture. “You a college girl?” he asked being a bit nosy, I replied simply with “ Yeah, it’s my first year,”. He looked at me and laughed, his voice echoing through the rural neighborhood. “Ain’t no colleges in Chandler.” I looked at him rather surprised as I said “Yes there is, the community college.” He looked at me with an almost worried look on his face. “Didn’t figure you would be going to a smaller college like that. My mistake.”
I want to be a student representative to the Pasco board of directors because it will be a tremendous achievement that will help greatly in my academic interests. Not only so but I believe that I could best interpret the concerns and doubts of every single student at Chiawana. From grades, testing, and even academic ability. I’m most adequate, as a result that I’ve been there done that. I know what it is like waking up every day with disappointment of my current grades, or to sit through a lecture not understanding a single thing.
I joined Council to make a difference in McCombs. I feel as though I have had the opportunities to do so, but I recognize many people have utilized their opportunities even better. With that, it would be an honor to serve on the BJGM Committee and help determine which student leaders should be recognized.
