Amped up for electrical engineering: Chante Price-Chesson

June 10th, 2021

Students may start out with a clear vision of what program they want to pursue, but through experience in their classes they find out that another program is more geared to their strengths. Chante Price-Chesson intended to follow her mother into nursing, but found that her math skills were a better fit for electrical engineering technology. Price-Chesson graduated with an Associate in Applied Science in Electrical Engineering Technology, Associate in Applied Science in General Occupational Technology, and an Associate in General Education on May 13, 2021. She is the first African-American woman to graduate from the electrical engineering technology program at Beaufort County Community College (BCCC). She heads to East Carolina University this fall to earn a Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering Technology and continue into a master’s program.

Price-Chesson graduated in 2013 from Broughton High School in Raleigh, returning to her hometown of Roper to start the nursing program at BCCC in the footsteps of her mother Celestine Price who had earned her GED, Nurse Aide II and Medical Technician Certifications from Beaufort.
