  5. Mid-term Grade Policy – this was discussed as being a possible goal for this committee. This goal will be explored more by Cynthia due to different VCCS policies.
  6. Supply Pantry – This idea came from Michele Fletcher, when she was talking with Brittney about the cost of supplies for students. Brittney asked Michele if she could take this idea to Student Success Committee as a possible goal and Michele was all for it! The Supply Pantry would operate similarly to the Food Pantry, but with supplies for students to use for class. Brittney will contact Deanne McDaniel and Philmika Reid about the possibility of getting a Supply Pantry started.
