WPCC Interpreter Education Students Learn through Service
May 16, 2018 – The Western Piedmont Community College (WPCC) Interpreter Education program prepares students for jobs with educational systems or in a variety of community settings, including work with industry. As part of their curriculum at WPCC, students use service learning to develop their skill while also giving back to the community.
Recently, interpreter education students Mykah Johnson and Kayla Marshall, volunteered at the Carolinas Healthcare System Blue Ridge LADY FAIR event, providing assistance to members of the local Deaf community.
