We are excited to announce our ONE Forsyth project which will be physically combining our Forsyth and Hill Center campuses into one location in the new Academies of Creative Education (ACE) facility in Forsyth County. This project, slated to be finalized in August 2021, will combine both site's staff and students. The Hill Center will be moving into the current Forsyth site for the month of May, and over the summer our new ONE Forsyth staff will be flexible and serving our students regardless of when our official move-in date will be. We will be releasing more information about a parallel project in offering virtual support across the entire MECHS footprint, while also encouraging our virtual students to attend in person at their home campus.

Forsyth MECHS hosted a 3 week student appreciation campaign featuring food, prizes, and fun.  The campaign encouraged students to attend class and to complete lesson modules.

Forsyth MECHS recently hosted a three-week student appreciation campaign.  The campaign was full of exciting activities and incentives for students attending class both virtually as well as on site.  The goal of the campaign was to encourage students to attend class and to complete lesson modules.

A Facebook Live was broadcast each night on campus which featured a powerball drawing with names of students who attended class the previous night.  Students whose names were drawn each night received a restaurant gift card.  Students were also given the opportunity to win a gift card if they recruited a friend to sign up to become a student at MECHS.  In addition, students were awarded a gift card each time they completed 5 lesson modules during the campaign. 

Students enjoyed nightly meals from local restaurants, ranging from Italian cuisine to Mexican cuisine and more.  The Braggin Wagon grilled fresh hamburgers for the students during the final week of the campaign. Faculty members recorded Fireside Chats which were broadcast on Facebook to inform students of important information regarding such topics as graduation and how to form good habits as a virtual learner. The student appreciation campaign was incredibly fun and was a great success.

Dress Down 2020 was a huge success!

We recently held the Dress Down 2020 Campaign to raise funds and awareness for our faculty scholarship initiative.  Staff members were given the chance to purchase Dress Down stickers for an opportunity to dress comfortably at work.  Participants were given delicious treats, provided by The Gym, ranging from donuts to Dunkin’ coffee and cheese bread, every night of the 2-week campaign. Each participant was also entered into a drawing for a Tam’s restaurant gift card.  We were very pleased with the tremendous response to the campaign, and we are looking forward to awarding scholarships to deserving students this spring.
