Pellissippi State Community College has been selected as the Tennessee community college recipient of the national ACT’s College and Career Readiness Campaign award.

The Career Preparedness Award recognizes the honoree for significant strides in helping students prepare for success in the workforce or in continuing their education. Pellissippi State next enters the selection process for national semifinalists in the ACT campaign. The selected finalist will be recognized as the national exemplar and will be honored at an ACT gala in Washington, D.C., in June.

“We’re honored that the work we do at Pellissippi State was recognized through this award,” said L. Anthony Wise Jr., the college’s president. “Our faculty and staff do a great job helping students find their success, whether they’re transferring to a four-year university or entering their career fields.”

This is the ACT’s third College and Career Readiness Campaign. This year’s campaign is the largest so far, involving 34 partner states. One exemplary student in each participating state receives an academic scholarship from ACT.
