    Attention Juniors & Seniors: We have some great news! Spring Semester Randolph Community College will offer Mat 152, Statistical Methods I, during 4th block. An RCC instructor will teach this class in one of our classrooms on campus! Students do need to meet placement test requirements, but this course would be an excellent way to earn high school and college credit for a math class. Please see one of your counselors by Friday afternoon if you are interested in this wonderful opportunity!
