Journey to Paraguay during “Passport” event at SCC on Sept. 25


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

Norma Gomez Goins, a Surry Community College graduate who is currently employed in the college’s Workforce, Technologies & Community Education area, will present her father’s country of origin: Paraguay. The presentation will be held on Wednesday, Sept. 25, in the Auditorium (A-121) on the Dobson campus at 12:30 p.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.
