From James Sprunt to UNCC: Kia Jeffers’ Journey to Become a Nurse

IMG_2198.JPG

Every since Kia Jeffers was a little girl in second grade, she has dreamed of becoming a nurse. She knew early on that was exactly what she wanted to be.

“I’ve always had this passion to want to help people,” said Kia, a pre-nursing student at UNC-Charlotte.

Her journey to her studies in the Queen City was made a bit easier because of Career and College Promise classes offered at James Sprunt Community College, free classes which grant college credit to high schoolers who successfully complete their courses. Kia took advantage of those classes while at Wallace Rose Hill High School in Duplin County.

“I took English 111, English 112, Pre-calculus, American History I and II, Sociology…” said Kia, who was able to transfer 31 credit hours of college coursework to UNCC. “The CCP classes definitely helped me get most of my general education requirements out of the way for my bachelor’s degree.”

As Kia found out upon entering UNC Charlotte, CCP classes are not offered everywhere.

“Many of my classmates at UNC Charlotte did not have the chance to take college classes in high school.”

“They are like, my school did not offer anything like that… so I’m very grateful for the opportunity to have taken so many classes through James Sprunt,” she said. ““It helped my GPA at Charlotte and helped me to get ahead. It allowed me the room to make mistakes, but correct them if needed.”

Kia says that the classes at James Sprunt prepared her for college life at UNCC.

“We had to write papers a lot at James Sprunt and at UNCC we have research papers due at least 5 times a semester, so it helped.”

Also helping her was the ability to take Anatomy and Physiology I and II, classes that got her closer to being accepted into the 49ers’ School of Nursing, a program that she cannot wait to be a part of at UNC Charlotte.

With a high GPA, CCP classes, and an opportunity that allowed her to attend Governor’s School at Meredith College during the summer of 2017, Kia could have chosen any university she wanted.

“I chose to go to Charlotte because it felt like home.”

***

Kia never imagined the tragedy that would unfold on the campus of UNC Charlotte on the last day of class.

“It was nerve-racking because that has never happened in North Carolina before,” she said as she recalls the day when the shooting took place, in which a gunman stormed into a classroom and killed two students and injuring several others.

“I was on campus and I was getting a lot of text messages saying there was an active shooter, and I was outside at the moment. It was kind of scary to think you go to school and you don’t think your safety is going to be compromised.”

Just as many other students, Kia was celebrating the end of the school year and getting ready for the concert that was to be held campus that day.

“It was just a normal day. It was the last day of class. I was outside the football stadium because we were having a concert,” she said. “The shooting took place by our library, so it was far apart from each other.”

But once the text messages were received, chaos erupted.

“Where we were standing, someone got scared and started running, so all of us just started running everywhere.”

UNCC made exams optional for students, and Kia decided to just leave campus and come home for the semester.

“I came on home. I packed my car and left,” said Kia. “I was going to go back for my exams, but I was still a little scared, because I was thinking those students were just in class and someone just walked in… so you could be in class and anything could happen. It made me want to stay here….You can never be too careful, because the campus is so big.”

But determined not to let fear stand in the way of reaching her goals or obtaining her degree, Kia vows that she will be back in class at UNCC in August.

***

Very motivated and driven, this summer Kia will be completing Nurse Aide I training at James Sprunt, and also volunteering at the hospital, both requirements for the School of Nursing at UNCC.

As she looks to the future and towards the day when she completes her degree, Kia said, “I’m going to jump right into nursing and ultimately work as a traveling nurse, that is my main goal.”

She also plans on continuing her education and going after her master’s degree, but for now she is looking forward to spending her summer with her family and friends, relaxing, and just enjoying life.

As for advice she would give to other students, Kia said, “If you are in high school, take as many CCP classes as you can at James Sprunt. They will definitely help you achieve your goals and give you a head start in college.”

Brothers Graduate James Sprunt Together, Earn Associate Degrees

Even though brothers Quinton Bass and Charles Bass are 8 years apart, on Thursday, May 9, 2019 they will reach a new milestone together – earning their associates degree from James Sprunt Community College.

“I think it’s pretty cool, I don’t think many people can say they graduated with a sibling,” said Quinton.

“It was not expected, but it is nice. I am glad that I can be a part of it with him,” said Charles of his younger brother. “That kid has his head on his shoulders. He’s smart and he’s going to make moves in his life.”

Charles, a welder, had not anticipated going back to school, but after he and his wife had a baby, he decided it was time.

“After welding for five years and starting a family, I just really wanted to better myself,” said Charles. “I would like to get a job that is more hour-friendly so that I can have more time with my family.”

Charles previously earned a certificate in welding from James Sprunt Community College and as he said, “it was a really good experience and I learned a lot,” which was one of the reasons he chose to come back to James Sprunt to get his Associate of Arts degree.

“Schooling was not my favorite thing to do… when I got into welding, I loved it because it was hands on, and I still love it,” said Charles. “But it has its advantages and disadvantages.”

Charles hopes to continue his education, getting his bachelor’s degree in physical education and becoming a PE teacher. “Every since high school, my dream was to be a PE teacher because I loved sports, and that was my favorite class in school. I loved the atmosphere of coaching.”

Undecided in high school, Quinton came to James Sprunt after hearing about the Presidential Scholars Program. “I thought it would be a good decision to come here for financial reasons and also to give me more time to decide what I wanted to do with my future.”

Quinton was one of the first students to receive the Presidential Scholarship in 2017, as James Sprunt started the initiative that year for Duplin County students.

“It was a really good opportunity,” said Quinton. “Coming here definitely gave me more time to think about overall what I wanted to do… the counselors and advisors are really good, they have your best interests at heart.”

In addition to earning two associate degrees, an associate of arts and an associate of science, Quinton will also be receiving a certificate in electrical systems technology, something that he says he thought would be beneficial to him in the future.

“The certificate counts as hours towards receiving an electrician’s license,” said Quinton. “I may decide to do that in my spare time later on.”

For now Quinton is preparing to go into Engineering at Campbell University in the fall.

As for advice that he would give others like him, he says, “if you are undecided, I’d recommend coming here… there are many trade programs that will benefit you.”

Both Quinton and Charles worked full-time jobs while attending classes full-time at James Sprunt, and were still able to maintain a high GPA.

The two had one online class together during their studies. “It was our hardest class,” said Charles. “It was cool that I could call my younger brother and ask him how to do something.”

“I’ve enjoyed myself here,” said Charles.

As for advice that he would give other students going back to school, Charles says, “Even if you did not like schooling, just start it and stick with it. One day it will pay off. Don’t wait.”

The two brothers are planning a camping trip after graduation to celebrate their success together. It’s the perfect choice for two brothers who love fishing, hunting, being outdoors, and each other.
