Members of the Vance-Granville Community College Human Services Technology (HST) Club conducted a Valentine’s Day community service project at Kerr Lake Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Henderson.

Students in the club handed out valentines and gifts to the residents and staff at the center. “The residents were happy to receive gifts and a short visit from HST Club members,” according to VGCC Human Services Technology Instructor/Club Advisor Sharon O’Geary.

The VGCC Human Services Technology program is a two-year associate degree program that trains students for entry-level jobs in the helping professions. VGCC offers three Human Services Technology degree tracks: a General track, a Gerontology track and a Substance Abuse Counseling track. VGCC’s program is nationally accredited by the Council for Standards in Human Service Education (CSHSE). Interested VGCC students in any major are welcome to join the new HST club.
