Trenholm State Community College has purchased the Blount Property, located in Executive Park on Eastern Boulevard in Montgomery. As the school’s third instructional site, it will house all health sciences programs that Trenholm offers, becoming the Healthcare Training Facility.
Currently Trenholm State has the largest number of collegiate health care programs offered in the River Region — 14 with an additional four expected to be added next year.
“The addition of this new health care training site will allow the college to fulfill the River Region’s immediate health care shortage and provide health resources for our community,” said Kemba Chambers, president of Trenholm State Community College.
The collage currently partners with Baptist Health, Jackson Hospital and the Nursing Home Association regarding their workforce needs.
In addition, by moving those health care classes to the new site, the Trenholm campus will be able to develop a Workforce Development Training Center with targeted program offerings that lead directly to the workforce.
