Aug. 7, 2003
The first academic degree program associated with the Riley Education and Performing Arts Center was scheduled to be announced today at Dumont Plaza.
Students at MCC will be able to begin course work in the broadcasting program this fall, then transfer to MSU-Meridian to complete their undergraduate degrees.
Dr. Scott Elliott, president of MCC, said the program is the result of a dynamic partnership.
The Riley center is being developed through the renovation of the Grand Opera House and the Marks-Rothenberg Building in downtown Meridian.
It is scheduled to open in the fall of 2005.
Nichols said the communication program is the result of hard work by faculty and administration at both Meridian Community College and Mississippi State University.
MCC's Dr. Kathy Baxter, associate vice president, Shirley Nell Goodman, associate vice president, and Dr. Scott Elliott, president, made substantial contributions to the program's development.
The team developing the program for Mississippi State included Dr. Dennis Mitchell, chairman of Arts and Sciences at MSU-Meridian, and Dr. Marian Huttenstine, MSU professor of communication and department head, and Dr. Phillip Oldham, MSU dean of Arts &Sciences, both from the Starkville campus.
