Pikeville Campus Holds Agency Breakfast

Apr 08, 2013

On Thursday, March 21, the Pikeville Campus held a networking breakfast for representatives from area agencies. The breakfast is held by the campus periodically to give agency representatives an opportunity to share information regarding programs and assistance that they have available.

Student Services Director Anne Snyder-Vanover shared information about the American National University Workforce Development grant which matches agency funding to eligible students and about the American National University Fast Track Grant which will match a cash payment or supplemental educational grant for eligible students who have depleted their Pell grant award for the year.

Those participating in the agency breakfast agreed that finding employment for their clients was their number one priority. Campus director Tammy Riley explained that American National University has a full-time career center director on staff who assists graduates with finding employment. Tammy also shared that the campus’s placement rates are carefully monitored by National’s accrediting body, the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools (ACICS).

Linda Habern, a counselor with the Kentucky Office of Vocational Rehabilitation, said that her program provides funding for education to her clients and that she closely monitors those students from the beginning of their education through “closure” which she defined as finding employment after training. Linda said that her clients who have completed career training at National have had great success finding employment. “National has probably the highest number, in my case load, of closures,” she said.
