During February, TRIO/Student Support Services challenged Beaufort County Community College students to complete a Black history quiz.  On February 28, TRIO/SSS invited all students to a Black History Month celebration to reveal the answers to the Black History STAR Challenge Quiz and to share little known facts they discovered in completing the quiz. Questions from the quiz covered a variety of topics ranging from politics to sports. Over 40 students, including Early College High School students, accepted the challenge and completed the quiz.
