Alumnus joins Tusculum staff as enrollment representative for the Tri-Cities

Posted on 27 April 2011 by eestes@tusculum.edu

Kevin Rose '09

Kevin Rose ’09 has joined the staff of Tusculum College as an enrollment representative to serve adult learners in the Tri-Cities area.

Rose works in Tusculum’s Tri-Cities Center, located at 104 Dillon Court in Gray. He will serve career-minded working adults who wish to continue their education through Tusculum’s Graduate and Professional Studies program, providing information to help them with their decision of which degree to pursue, guiding them through the admission process and helping them explore financial aid.

In working with prospective students, Rose can draw on his own experiences as a Tusculum student. He earned an associate of applied science degree in respiratory care from Walters State Community College in 2003 and later returned to school through the Graduate and Professional Studies program to achieve his dream of earning a bachelor’s degree. In 2009, he did just that, earning a bachelor of science degree in organizational management from Tusculum.

Prior to joining the Tusculum staff, Rose worked as a respiratory therapist and registered polysomnographer. He later worked in corporate healthcare sales and marketing, promoting products and services in the healthcare setting.

Rose, his wife Autumn and their two children, Brandel and Baylyn, live in Mt. Carmel. In 2009, Rose and his wife started the Brandel Rose Scholarship Fund at Tusculum in honor of their son who has Down’s Syndrome. The scholarship helps students who are majoring in special education or early childhood development.

“Our lives have been greatly impacted from those who help teach and serve the special needs community,” he said. “It has been our honor to give back to this great institution.”

Tusculum’s Graduate and Professional Studies provides working adults the opportunity to earn a college degree through a uniquely focused and practical program offered at convenient locations and on a flexible, accelerated schedule. Undergraduate degree programs include bachelor of science degrees in business administration and organizational management and bachelor of arts degrees in education and psychology with a concentration in behavioral health. Master’s degrees are offered in education, organizational management and teaching.

TMAG continues to grow in its services to veterans and military personnel during its first year

Posted on 27 April 2011 by eestes@tusculum.edu

Tusculum College Graduate and Professional Studies students Jordan Eggleston and Wes Baessler, both of Knoxville, who created The Military Assistance Group (TMAG) at Tusculum College in 2009, are pleased with the groups success in its first few years.

TMAG was created when Eggleston saw the need for veteran students to have assistance with their GI benefits. He enlisted Baessler’s help and, with the support of Tusculum College staff, the group and its activities have grown and evolved. It is the first certified Graduate and Professional Studies student organization at Tusculum.

“A lot of veterans are out of their element and have to adjust to a new environment when they come into the college environment,” said Eggleston. “Tusculum is very military friendly, and we can provide that extra bit of guidance and feeling of acceptance as they work to better themselves through education.”

Eggleston has spoken at student events to provide information on the military to educate the student body as a whole.

TMAG has provided care packages to deployed service members and assisted at a recent “Stand Down” event for homeless veterans as well.

Both Eggleston and Baessler are SPO II Bearcat Operators at the Y-12 National Security Complex in Oak Ridge, Tenn., as well as students at Tusculum. Both also served five years in the U.S. Army as Military Police.

The group is currently focused on implementing its “Blue Star Program.” They are working with Tusculum on this program, which could eventually allow for a tuition discount for veterans’ family members. Veterans who have exhausted their GI benefits would also be eligible for this program.

“Families serve in the military as well, just in a different way,” said Baessler. “A distracted solider is a dead soldier and the family members ensure that things are maintained at home so the solider can focus on his or her duties. The family members are not thanked enough and this is one small way we can try to do that.”

WSI Oak Ridge Security Police Officer Brad Carter is also involved with TMAG and serves as its treasurer. Lauren Venable, is also very active with the group and serves as Secretary. Eggleston and Baessler credit Venable with being the driving force of the group. Carter served in Security Forces in the U.S. Air Force and Venable’s husband Ben served in the U.S. Army as Military Police.

The group has been successful in communicating its efforts to Tusculum students and has a page of the college’s internal website. Sixty students are currently members. TMAG is actively working to expand the group to include the other Tusculum campuses in Morristown, Greeneville and Gray, Tennessee.

Companies, organizations or individuals interested in donating to TMAG can do so by designating a donation to Tusculum College for the cause. For more information contact Tom McKay, Assistant Director/Academic Coordinator for Tusculum College at 865-693-1177 ext. 5020 or tmckay@tusculum.edu.

Dr. Thomas H. Stein named vice president of enrollment management

Posted on 23 March 2011 by eestes@tusculum.edu

Dr. Thomas H. Stein

Thomas H. Stein has been  named vice president of enrollment management at Tusculum College and will be assuming his responsibilities in April.

Stein has held a similar position for the past 18 years at Otterbein University in Westerville, Ohio. He steps into the position previously held by Jacquelyn D. Elliott, who will soon be leaving the college in order to complete her doctoral work.

Dr. Nancy B. Moody, president of the college, commended the success of Ms. Elliott during her five-year tenure at Tusculum in the growth of the residential student population and wished her continued success in pursuit of her terminal degree at George Washington University.

With thirty-two years experience in higher education, Stein has experience in marketing, fundraising, strategic planning and working with students through the enrollment and financial aid processes. He will take over responsibilities at Tusculum College on April 18.

“We are very pleased that Thomas Stein will be joining us at Tusculum College,” said Moody. “His experience and success in enrollment management will support continuing success as the college builds upon current strategies to grow our adult programs.”

He holds a bachelor of arts degree from Ohio Northern University, a master of science degree from the University of Dayton and a doctorate of philosophy from the University of Toledo.

At Otterbein University he was responsible for all enrollment oversight for traditional students and served as one of five members of the President’s Cabinet. Under his guidance, the Otterbein enrollment division increased full-time enrollment by 67 percent, from 1,500 students to more than 2,500 students during his tenure. In addition, he has worked with extensive marketing plans and with financial aid policies to enhance enrollment at the institution and meet institutional budgets.

Prior to joining Otterbein, Stein was Dean of Admissions at Wilmington College in Ohio, where he also served as a member of the President’s Council.

In Lewistown, Ohio, where he currently resides, Stein serves as president of the Indian Lake School Board. He is also a member of the Indian Lake Growth and Development Committee.

Stein is married to Kristine Stein and has two adult sons, Kyle and Carl.
