An author and graduate of Prince George’s Community College will give a lecture on what it takes to succeed in college at his alma mater.
Tawan Perry, a graduate of the college, will be the school’s guest speaker at noon Nov. 6. Perry, who received an associate’s degree from the community college, a bachelor’s degree from Morgan State University and a master’s degree from University of Massachusetts Amherst, will be the guest speaker for PGCC’s Literally Speaking Author Series Program.
The free address on the campus’ Accokeek Hall will cover topics such as those in Perry’s book, “College Sense: What College and High School Advisors Don’t Tell You about College.” Following the talk, he’ll be available for book signing, said Joseph Clark, a PGCC spokesman, in a statement.
“He will share his strategies for handling common challenges students face including identifying the right college, accessing scholarship and financial aid opportunities and maintaining a positive grade point average,” Clark said.
