How many high school students get a tour of a college campus hosted by its President?! Coal Creek Scholars did during our visit to Tusculum College.
As part of our Coal Creek Scholars program, we take the students to visit schools that they might be interested in attending. The hour and a half drive to Tusculum College in Greeneville, TN from Coal Creek was beautiful on this spring morning in East Tennessee. Tusculum President Dr. Nancy Moody and Campus Visit Coordinator Becky Tankersley and Aaron Porter were gracious hosts to our group.
|President Nancy Moody spoke to the students and their
parents in one of the high tech classrooms.
She told them how she came from a small town in Kentucky and had a similar
background to the scholars. Dr. Moody told the students that whatever
school they choose, they should stay focused on why they are there and get
the best education they can.
We really appreciate all the special treatment that Dr. Moody, Becky and Aaron
gave the group.
Tusculum is one of a very limited number of colleges offering the "Block" program which is where a student will take one class for 18 days. The Block System allows you to live and to breathe each subject and to become a part of a true learning community. Click for more info on the Block.
|Coal Creek Scholars attending were: Sarah
Byrge, Kyle Leinart, Melinda Patterson, Johnny Patterson, Samantha Randolph,

Others attending were: Stephanie Byrge, Johnny & Ruth Patterson, Reba Randolph, Tammy Wright, Phillip Sexton, and Barry Thacker and Carol Moore from the Coal Creek Watershed Foundation
