Dr. Faulkner: Kudos

Within the past week I have had occasions to be in meetings regarding our Highland Crest campus in Springfield and at our Livingston campus.  I continue to be impressed each time I visit.

First and foremost I am impressed by the levels of support for our presence in these two communities.  At the meeting in Springfield there was palpable excitement at the prospect of moving forward.  There was a good discussion about looking beyond our initial three year agreement and about how we could raise scholarships for students from Robertson County to be able to attend Vol State at the Highland Crest site.  In Livingston, we have a base of support that highly values the center and puts that into action by doing things like the annual Vol-E Ball.  (Which, by the way, is coming up on April 19)  With community help, we are initiating a “Vol State First” campaign to encourage prospective students to consider Vol State as their initial destination.

Secondly, I’m impressed by the hard work and dedication of our teams.  Mike Powell and Kelly Miller do great work in leading our employee teams at their respective locations.  Our folks demonstrate each day that “student success is job one.”

These same levels of support are evidenced at Gallatin and McGavock and the many other locations where Vol State reaches out to our service area.  We are so fortunate to have team members at all our locations that put students first.

Kudos to all!!
