King University News :: King Provost Speaks at Morristown Chamber of Commerce Meeting

Around 100 people were in attendance as King College hosted the Morristown Chamber of Commerce Breakfast on Thursday, Aug. 9, 2012, at Walters State Community College in Morristown, Tenn. 

The invocation for the meeting was provided by Micah Crews, associate vice president of Enrollment Management GPS and Online Studies.  Dr. Wade B. McCamey, president of WSCC introduced the main speaker for the meeting, Dr. Paul Percy, provost for King College.  

Dr. McCamey commented on continuing collaborative efforts with King College which not only create opportunities for Walters State students to earn four-year degrees without having to leave the community, but also prepares them for employment in careers that are in-demand in the college’s service area. 

During his keynote address, Dr. Percy spoke of the importance of education in job placement, satisfaction and salary.  He also noted his own beginnings at a community college, being a first generation college graduate, and the encouragement he received from his parents and grandparents to further his education. 

“King College serves the students at Walters State by offering working adult programs that allow a WSCC graduate to complete a bachelor’s degree in as little as 16 months,” said Mona Salyer, director of recruitment for Graduate Professional Studies.  “Onsite at the WSCC campus in Morristown, King offers the Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) and Bachelor of Science in Nursing for Registered Nurses (RN-BSN) degree options.  At WSCC in Sevierville, King offers the BBA program.

“King College also offers online degree options including Master of Business Administration (MBA), BBA, RN-BSN, Bachelor of Information Technology (BTECH), Bachelor of Science in Communication (COMM), and Bachelor of Science in Psychology (PSYCH),” said Salyer
