Pierce College District joins American Honors program

As part of a continued commitment to providing students opportunities for advancement and completion, the Pierce College District, which encompasses Puyallup and Fort Steilacoom campuses, has partnered with American Honors, a post-secondary program with a transfer network of four-year universities.

“We’re impressed with the ability for our students to have additional opportunities to transfer,” Pierce College District Chancellor Michele Johnson said. “It gives students access to a group of universities that they may not have had access to before.”

American Honors is a program under the umbrella of Quad Learning, Inc., based in Washington, D.C. Chris Romer, Quad Learning’s president and co-founder, said American Honors will begin to recruit and select qualified students for the program starting this spring.
