School Notes:

Motlow College is a multi-location community college providing degree programs designed for transfer to other colleges and universities; degree and non-degree programs designed to develop immediate job readiness skills and competencies and public service, lifelong learning, and workforce development programs to promote personal enrichment and economic and community development. The central campus of Motlow State Community College is located on 185 acres of beautifully wooded land in Moore County. The 187-acre site for the college was donated by the Motlow family of Lynchburg, Tennessee. Because of this generous gift and because of Senator Reagor Motlow's contributions to education in Tennessee, Governor Buford Ellington and Commissioner of Education, J. Howard Warf, recommended that the college be named Motlow State Community College. Motlow State Community College is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools to award the Level I associate degree.
