Pellissippi State Community College and Carson-Newman University are partnering to ensure transfer pathways are seamless for community college students who go on to earn their four-year degrees.

The partnership specifically targets certain transfer programs, which allow students to earn an associate degree and then transfer those credits to a four-year university. The Carson-Newman partnership will allow seamless transfer for Pellissippi State students earning an Associate of Fine Arts in Music and an Associate of Science in Teaching with a concentration for preschool through grade three, as well as the Tennessee Transfer Pathway degree in Business Administration. Students who earn those degrees from Pellissippi State can then transfer to Carson-Newman to complete bachelor’s degrees in Education, Music and Business.

Additionally, students who earn certain associate degrees from Pellissippi State can transfer to Carson-Newman and enter bachelor’s degree programs in general studies or in Pre-Nursing.

“Partnerships like this one allow community college students to more easily find their way along the path to a higher education,” said L. Anthony Wise Jr., president of Pellissippi State.

“We are proud to partner with Carson-Newman University to enable our students to successfully complete a bachelor’s degree in these programs,” said Ted Lewis, vice president of Academic Affairs at Pellissippi State.

“This is a significant partnership between two great academic institutions that will benefit East Tennessee students by providing the opportunity to earn a bachelor’s degree. It’s a win-win all-around,” said Paul Percy, provost of Carson-Newman.

Students from Pellissippi State Community College took eight of the top 15 places in a recent statewide mathematics competition among community colleges.

A total of 114 Pellissippi State students competed in the annual Pellissippi State Math Bowl in five divisions — survey of mathematics, calculus A and B, precalculus and statistics. Community college students from across the state also participated in the competition at their home college. Their scores were then compared to those of other students entered in the Math Bowl.

Pellissippi State students Lily Turaski and Alex Shipe finished first and second, respectively, in the statewide calculus A division. Abe Joo finished third statewide in calculus B, while Symon Elliott, Alana Farris and Morgan Bailey were first, second and third statewide in survey of mathematics. Liam Schenk and Ana Brantley scored first and second place in the statewide statistics division.

The Pellissippi State Math Bowl is part of the annual State Mathematics Competition, sponsored by the Tennessee Mathematical Association of Two-Year Colleges. In addition to state prizes, Pellissippi State — thanks to a grant from Oak Ridge Associated Universities — awards its top finishers in each subject with additional cash prizes.

In addition to the winners named above, Pellissippi State also recognized Ethan Vals in calculus A; Andrew Hendershott, Katie Moore and Victoria Villella in precalculus; Son Quang and Rebekah Meece in calculus B and Natalie Keener in statistics.
