As a finalist, college representatives will present at the 2014 Community College Futures Assembly in Orlando, FL on January 25-28. Each of the ten finalists will be recognized with one winner announced.

'We are thrilled to be recognized for the tremendous work that has gone into creating this avenue for degree attainment and incumbent worker training. It is unique in higher education that one program can meet both needs.
