Agriculture Institute Aims to Grow Success

Jun 9, 2016

A new class at Isothermal Community College will help students plant the seeds to their future in the field of agriculture, officials said this week.

The Agriculture Institute is a new Continuing Education program for residents of Rutherford and Polk counties. The class will start on Monday, June 20, on the main campus in Spindale.

In this final of three interviews on the status of race relations in the United States in 2013, you'll meet Dr. Johnny Smith, Dean of Learning Support and Retention here at Isothermal Community College. 

I chose Dr. Smith to interview for this series because he is the perfect example of what can be accomplished by men of color when given a reason to succeed against seemingly impossible odds.

For many,  education is a necessity to start a new career, to move up the ladder in your current career or even just for fun. Community Colleges have become the hub of that type of learning in North Carolina – as well as other states – and the perfect place to start can be through Continuing Education. For example, I first saw an e-mail from Marnie Beaver here at Isothermal Community College about a class called 'Creating Mobile Apps with HTML5'.  I was literally blown away.
