JOHNSON CITY – East Tennessee State University’s National Alumni Association will hold its 26th annual Alumni Return to the Classroom (ARTC) program tomorrow (Friday, Nov. 2).
Following an 8 a.m. recognition breakfast in the Carnegie Hotel, participating alumni will serve as “professors for a day,” sharing their “real world” experiences with current students in the classrooms in which they once studied.
These alumni, who are professionals in a variety of fields and may be in positions to recruit or hire current students for future employment, are invited by ETSU deans and professors to participate.
The 26 alumni scheduled to attend this year include Tony Clark, district attorney general for the First Judicial District in Washington County; Richard Wilson, president and CEO of The Property Group, Houston; Janice Compton, manager of sustainable practices for the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation; Robert White, chief public relations officer for the Johnson City Power Board; Erin Storey Burnside, a forensic research scientist at Western Carolina University; and George Martin Little Jr., retired president and chief examiner of the U.S. Army Credit Union.
The ARTC program was established as part of ETSU’s 75th anniversary celebration in 1986.
