ACCESS College Commitment Day 2019

Our fourth annual College Commitment Day, held on April 30, 2019 at the Ted Constant Convocation Center, was a huge success!

Thanks to our Presenting Partner Old Dominion University and Diamond Elite Partner Virginia529, nearly 2,200 Southside and Northampton County high school seniors were able to celebrate their college acceptances in a BIG way.

Event Partners and Access Staff collectively awarded scholarships totaling $30,000!  For the fourth year in a row, Z104’s Shaggy brought the house down with his energy and music.  Check out the news coverage of the event on WVECWAVYWTKRThe Virginian-Pilot and Suffolk News Herald.

To the Class of 2019: Congratulations on your hard work. You deserve all the success in the world!
