Super Sunday Event

Greater Lincoln Heights and Mount Moriah Missionary Baptist Churches will partner with WKCTC for the first Super Sunday event on February 27. Super Sunday is a statewide initiative with WKCTC and each of the other 15 colleges in the Kentucky Community and Technical College System (KCTCS), along with the System office, collaborating with churches in their communities to increase the college-going rate of African-American students.

Reverend Calvin Cole, pastor of Mount Moriah Missionary Baptist Church, has experienced the benefit of going to college first-hand. My life was set on the right path when I graduated from West Kentucky Vocational School in 1969. And I taught at West Kentucky Technical College (now WKCTC) for 27 years and saw many lives changed for the better, Cole said. We must keep spreading the word to let people know they can make it in life with a college education - if they will just seize the opportunity. Super Sunday is a wonderful way to do that.

Following the church services, WKCTC representative will be on hand to talk with prospective college students and their families about high demand, high wage career opportunities, the admission and enrollment process, financial aid, available scholarship, earning a GED, available programs and services, any other additional educational information.

Reverend Alfred Anderson, pastor of Greater Lincoln Heights Missionary Baptist Church, said he is excited about what Super Sunday means to the area. I want to thank West Kentucky for stepping up to the plate to reach out to the youth in our community, he said. This event will encourage those who normally dont pursue higher education to take a look at the future and see that college is within their reach.

Greater Lincoln Heights Missionary Baptist Church, 1324 Bloomfield Avenue and Mount Moriah Missionary Baptist Church, 1201 South 8th Street are located in Paducah. Services begin at 10:45 a.m. at both locations.

Super Sunday events are free to the public and everyone is encouraged to attend.
