On Saturday October 19, 2013, students from Union County Early College joined students from schools across Union County to volunteer with Halloween Happenings in Monroe. Students ran various booths for visitors with everything from crafts to games. The event ran from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. and was a huge success! The event was attended by a large number of young children, all of whom seemed to be having a wonderful time! Tonya Edwards, Assistant Director of Parks and Recreation for the City of Monroe wrote to UCEC Principal, Jane Wade, “Just wanted to thank you and your students again for volunteering at the City of Monroe’s Halloween Festival this past Saturday. As always, the students did a wonderful job of operating our activity booths. Thanks again for your continued support of this event. It would not be possible without the volunteer support from groups such as the Early College students.”
Union County Early College High School is set up as a five-year academic program. The program is based on the principle that academic rigor, combined with the opportunity to save time and money, is a powerful motivator for students to work hard and meet serious intellectual challenges. Early College blends high school and college in a rigorous yet supportive program, compressing the time it takes to complete a high school diploma and two years of college.
