Dr. Bill Seymour, president of Cleveland State Community College, will lead a team of college colleagues in a presentation at 2017’s first quarterly “Food for Thought” membership luncheon on Thursday, March 23, at noon at the Chamber of Commerce.
The Cleveland State team will talk about the 50th anniversary of the community college and plans for the next 50 years.
Influential individuals and local organizations, including the Chamber of Commerce, supported the campaign to establish a site in Cleveland in the early ’60s once the state decided to establish three community colleges in Tennessee. Following a successful campaign, Cleveland State became a major force in the community in a short time.
Seymour, who became Cleveland State president in 2014, will lead the discussion about the 50th anniversary of the college, along with recent developments and future plans to increase its viability in the community.
This first quarter “Food for Thought” Dutch-treat luncheon will take place at the Chamber of Commerce, with reservations required to facilitate room setup and food. For more information, please click here.
