The outstanding education provided to its students allows them to succeed in their chosen careers, contributing even more to our community.”

Cannon continued, “This recognition is as much for Don Torline, president, as it is for the campus. He has been the most authentic administrator that anybody could ever ask for. He works tirelessly in support of township initiatives and is one of our truly great community leaders.”
