Trevecca to offer classes in Clarksville

Today, July 18, at 2 P.M., officials from the City of Clarksville, Tenn., and Trevecca Nazarene University will participate in a ribbon-cutting ceremony at North Central Institute that will signal the official opening of Trevecca's Management and Human Relations Program (MHR) in that city. Cutting the ribbon for Trevecca will be President Dan Boone and Erin Anderson, director of the MHR program; they will be joined by representatives from the Clarksville Chamber of Commerce and Dr. John McCurdy, president and owner of North Central Institute, where MHR classes will be held.

The decision to offer Trevecca's MHR Program, a degree-completion program for adults who already have completed some college courses, in Clarksville is an effort to provide area students with another option for advanced education. The highly successful MHR Program, which can be completed in 13 months, allows working adults to complete their college education and remain in the workforce while attending classes one night per week. Students become part of a cohort group and take all their classes together; that system provides a support system that students report is very helpful. Graduates report that their MHR degree has helped them advance in their jobs, prepared them for graduate school, and assisted them in career changes.

Annetta Sykes, site coordinator for the Clarksville location, says that the first Clarksville class will begin on September 25. She invites persons interested in being part of that first class to contact her at 931-431-2667.
