“Southwest is proud to partner with the University of Memphis Millington Center in offering courses and student services to the residents of Millington and beyond,” said Southwest President Dr. Tracy D. Hall. “We are committed to reaching out to residents across Shelby County who wish to further their education or advance their skills.”
