Versailles, Ky. amp;nndash; Due to inclement weather this week and the forecast for another round of snow and ice this weekend many KCTCS colleges and the System Office are rescheduling 2015 Super Sunday events, originally planned for Sunday, February 22.

The Kentucky Community and Technical College System (KCTCS) and each of its 16 colleges will host statewide events for Super Sunday, an annual student recruitment initiative specifically targeting African-American and Latino students. Colleges and partner churches are currently identifying dates to reschedule events and local communities and media can confirm the new schedule for Super Sunday at http://super-sunday.org/?p=events.

To date, KCTCS has partnered with more than 150 churches and has shared the Yes You Can Go to College message with more than 33,000 individuals. This community-based outreach has been extremely beneficial, resulting in increased attendance among diverse students at KCTCS colleges statewide. In fall 2014, 14.4 percent of the total student population self-identified as being black/African-American, Latino or two or more races. This represents a 19 percent increase since fall 2010.

This year marks the fifth anniversary for the information fairs that enable KCTCS advocates to connect with prospective college students and their families. To learn more about Super Sunday in Kentucky, visit super-sunday.org.
