Thank you for your interest in participating in the Scary ACCE Event. However, After consultation with stakeholders and public health officials, the tough decision has been made to cancel the Scary ACCE Trail for 2020.
After consultation with stakeholders and public health officials, the tough decision to modify the Scary ACCE Event has been made. While the ACCE program in Giles continues to support as many students as possible and fundraising is important, the planning group has decided again to pivot how that plays out in 2020. These types of events help raise funds to support the Giles ACCE program that, to date has provided tuition-free college education at New River Community College to over 300 Giles County graduates. Current ACCE students will be supporting the events as part of their community service to the program. Giles County is the first locality in the New River Valley to participate in the “Access to Community College Education” initiative. ACCE is a public/private partnership that makes college available tuition-free to resident graduates from Giles County by covering the cost of tuition for two years at New River Community College. ACCE supports as many students as possible based on student need and funds available for the program. With participants support, students will graduate from NRCC prepared to join the workforce or transfer to a four-year university without college debt. The successful program has garnered national attention for Giles County and has allowed over 300 students to further their education at New River Community College.
