Final results for the 2012 Critical Success Factors Report are not yet available. However, a draft report provided by the North Carolina Community College System shows that Wilkes Community College met all seven of the community college system’s performance measures. WCC was one of 27 of 58 N.C. community colleges to achieve this standard. Colleges receive recognition of Exceptional Institutional Performance if they meet or exceed all seven performance measures. Also, Wilkes Community graduated 16 Associate Degree Nursing students in the spring which means that for the first time in 22 years 100 percent successfully passed the exam on the first attempt. At last week’s WCC Board of Trustees meeting, it was announced that through an agreement with the Ashe County Board of Education, the Ashe Campus will begin offering diploma-level courses in Collision Repair and Refinishing Technology starting with the fall 2012 semester. Ashe County High School will provide the space and equipment for the program at no cost to the college. In addition, the Ashe Campus of WCC is part of statewide discussions with GE Aviation to ensure that there is an available, trained workforce for the company as it moves forward to meet increasing international demand for fixed-wing airplanes and repair parts. Wilkes Community College, a member of the North Carolina Community College System, is a public, two-year, open-door institution serving the people of Wilkes, Ashe and Alleghany counties.
