"The Compass Math Review course is designed as a review for those who would like to obtain a college education, but are uncertain about taking college math. The course covers the basic math skills required to prepare a student for college level math, and is perfect for those who have been out of school for some time and need a refresher. The class is self-paced and instructor led; we are here every step of the way to help students succeed," said Renita Luck, online learning coordinator for Darton State College.
Darton has played an important part in my life for more than five years. It was where I earned my Associates of Science in Computer Information Systems; formed lifelong friendships and defined my purpose in education. As the 2013 – 2014 president of the Darton State College Alumni Association, I have the privilege of serving as an ambassador for our beloved alma mater. I look forward to impacting and giving back to the institution that contributed so much to my development.
Darton right-hander Christopher Long’s ultimate dream may have come true sooner than expected, but it figures that a kid who heaves a 96 mph fastball is used to things happening quickly.
The Zebulon, Ga., native signed a MLB contract with the San Diego Padres after just his freshman year with the Cavalier ball club. He was picked up in the 23rd round and is now entering Rookie Ball in Phoenix, where his Arizona League Padres will play 56 games in the next two-and-a-half months.
And he’ll play as a pitcher – a position that he’s taken in only 19 games.
