NCDHHS Secretary to Visit MHU
North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Aldona Wos will visit with administrators and students on the campus of Mars Hill University on Thursday afternoon, September 19.
Secretary Wos’s visit is part of the ongoing celebration of Mars Hill’s transition to university status in August. Mars Hill’s strong social work program and the university’s plans to create a bachelor’s degree in nursing, and a master’s degree in Public Administration in the near future will be highlighted during her visit.
Secretary Wos is also interested in Mars Hill’s commitment to attracting first generation students and producing highly qualified graduates in a variety of fields. Her upcoming visit is an important recognition by state policy makers of Mars Hill’s already existing programs that produce well-prepared graduates ready to move into the world of work and its commitment to creating new programs that fit student needs and help improve the communities in Western North Carolina.
