THOMASVILLE (April 27, 2022) – Communities need to stick together. And Davidson-Davie Community College serves as the glue for two counties just south of Winston-Salem.
In the accompanying video, Davidson-Davie President Darrin Hartness describes how the college serves as an integral part of community.
“We now serve over 12,000 students each year with over 40 different programs of study,” Hartness says.
Hartness then outlines the diverse diplomas and credentials the school offers citizens of Davidson and Davie counties, in Swiss-Army knife fashion:
- Associate degrees that lead to transfer to a four-year university.
- One of only two community-college zoo and aquarium science programs in the country.
- Health sciences that range from nursing to sterile instrument processing and surgical technology.
- Trade programs that include truck driving, plumbing, welding and electrical work.
“We have students of all ages that come to our college to gain better skills for a better job, improve their life and the life of their family,” Hartness says.
