FROM THE PRESIDENT
Happy New Year!
Welcome to a new decade as we prepare to celebrate turning 20 in 2020! With our theme, “A Generation of Dreams”, we will commemorate our anniversary all year long through a mixture of long-standing traditions infused with a few signature special events. Annual events like the Carter G. Woodson ceremony, convocation and commencement will be official anniversary celebrations, along with signature events that include the renaming of the Nursing, Natural Sciences and Biotechnology building on the Union Avenue Campus in honor of Southwest Tennessee Community College President Emeritus Dr. Nathan Essex and the unveiling of a new plaque at the Maxine A. Smith Center in honor of civil rights icon Maxine Smith.
Our goals are to foster new relationships, spark engagement among alumni and friends, and rally the college and community around the Southwest journey—past, present and future. I hope to see you at Spring Convocation Feb. 7 in Nabors Gymnasium where we will provide additional details about the yearlong celebration.
Have a great 2020 and see you at Spring Convocation!
