Informative Adult College Preview Summit
NORTH JACKSON–Adults going back to college can get help Monday to pick a career path and pay for school. The Southwest Tennessee Development District is working to help non-traditional and adult learners to complete their college degrees and improve their trade skill credentials. The free, REDI Adult College Summit,is set for encouraging adult education and career success. Fourteen educational institutions, both public and private, will be on hand to answer questions. Beverly Vos, REDI College Access Coordinator, talked about how the main goal of this summit is to get adults back to school and on a better career path for competing industries. “Given them information, so that they know what to consider and know how to make an informative and intelligent decision. And given them encouragement” Vos said,”They can do this!” The effort is in tandem with Governor Bill Halsam’s New Drive to 55 Program to improve degree rates among Tennesseans. Monday’s event starts at six, in the Union University’s Pennick Academic Complex.
