Travel to Ireland without leaving the Yadkin Valley during the Passport Event hosted by the Scholars of Global Distinction at Surry Community College.

SCC Communication Instructor, Emily Workman, will present the culture and customs of Ireland from the viewpoint of a tourist. The presentation will be held on Thursday, Oct. 10, in the Auditorium (A-121) on the Dobson campus at 11 a.m.

The Scholars of Global Distinction is a program that started at SCC last year and is open to all students. Scholars complete 15 credits of globally intensive courses, attend eight “passport” events, complete an immersion program, and deliver a capstone presentation. Participation in the program fosters increased global awareness and skills to compete in a globally diverse world.
