Officials at Hopkinsville Community College have hired a new manager of external education programs.
A news release from the school on North Drive says Rachel Westerman will take over those duties tomorrow. Ms. Westerman is a Christian County native and was most recently the Pennyroyal Hospice director of business development.
She is a 2006 graduate of Murray State University, where she obtained a bachelor of science degree in organizational communications and a minor in art.
Ms. Westerman’s primary duties will center on the Rotary Schoalrs Program, which will begin in the fall of next year. The program will allow academically qualifying graduates of high schools in Christian County to attend HCC at no charge to them, thanks to the efforts of the Rotary Club.
