In support of CECS’ teaching, research, and service mission, the College launched a Distinguished Speaker Seminar Series beginning this fall.  As a further  outreach commitment to students, faculty, and the extended community, the Speaker Series is open to the public. The presentations in the Speaker Series provide opportunities for sharing both cutting-edge  information from noted researchers in various fields as well as experience and timely insights from community leaders.

The inaugural seminar was shared with a standing-room-only crowd of students, faculty, and guests on Wednesday, October 12. On that evening, community leaders and CECS alumni; Mr. David Wade, President and CEO of EPB; Ms. Tammy Womack, Manager with TVA; and Mr. Jason Allen, VP with Chattem/SunPharma spoke on the topic, Workforce Readiness and How Students Can Prepare for the Challenges and Opportunities of Future Job Demands.
