HIGH POINT, N.C., Feb. 16, 2010 – Tracy Collum, associate dean in the Evening Degree Program at High Point University, was recently elected as vice president of the North Carolina Adult Education Association.
Collum, who previously served as a board member of NCAEA for the 2008-09 term, will be developing a new Web site for the upcoming term year to help kick start the group?s membership campaign, and increase the statewide visibility for the association.
NCAEA is an organization close to Collum?s heart, as the group?s goals are on par with her goals at HPU.
“It’s an organization of continuing higher education, adult education and training professions that provides learning initiatives, professional development and networking opportunities for its members,” Collum says. “The group also advocates resources and information, and also serves as a wonderful resource for educational leaders and the general public on lifelong learning initiatives, programming, collaboration, advocacy and research.”
