U.S. Rep. Martha Roby and Alabama Rep. Rhett Marques visited Enterprise State Community College on Aug. 13.
ESCC administration held a round table discussion with both representatives.
“It is an honor to host Congresswoman Roby and Representative Marquis,” said ESCC President Matt Rodgers. “It is important for both representatives to see and hear what is taking place on our Enterprise Campus. Our team at ESCC and the Alabama Aviation College has really worked hard over the last year and has looked for better ways to serve our community. This is an important time for our community, and we embrace the role that our community college can play to make a positive impact. I appreciate both of the representatives taking time out of their busy schedules to dialogue with us.”
ESCC Dean of Instruction Danny Long facilitated the round table with topics including new and existing programs, recent renovations and future renovations discussed. Deans, directors and division chairs from various ESCC departments participated in the discussion.
“I enjoyed hearing from President Matt Rodgers, division chairs and directors, and State Representative Rhett Marques,” Roby said. “It was exciting to learn more about the college’s many facility improvements, as well as new programs and opportunities ranging from academics to athletics. I will continue to do all I can in Congress to support their role in workforce development. We are fortunate to have this outstanding school in the Wiregrass.”
Marques praised the work the school is doing in providing a trained workforce for the Wiregrass area.
“It is always great to have Representative Martha Roby in Coffee County and Enterprise,” Marques said. “I enjoyed hearing her thoughts and appreciate all of the hard work in supporting this community. The Enterprise State Community College put together a great presentation showing the future development of the Enterprise and Ozark campuses. President Rodgers and his staff are doing a fantastic job preparing the future workforce in the Wiregrass.”
