Huntington, Ind.— An information meeting for Huntington College’s EXCEL Program for Adults will be held at Blackhawk Christian High School in Fort Wayne on Thursday, March 6, 2003. The meeting, which will be held from 6 – 7 p.m., will allow interested individuals the opportunity to learn how to earn an associate or bachelor degree through the EXCEL Program. Courses will start to be offered at Blackhawk Christian School, making the Huntington EXCEL Program more accessible to residents of Fort Wayne, New Haven and the surrounding areas.

“I had a solid career, but I knew I needed to finish what I’d left unfinished,” said Scott Johnson, customer service supply manager for Franklin Electric. “I’d recommend the EXCEL Program to anybody. We had excellent instructors, many of them business people themselves, and the perspective of my classmates opened me to new outlooks and interpretations.”

Huntington College’s EXCEL Program offers evening classes tailored to the schedule of most working adults. Classes are held one night per week, one subject at a time. Classes last five to eight weeks in length and lead to an associate or bachelor degree in organizational management. As a student-focused program, EXCEL offers a high quality business education enriched by Christian ethics and perspectives.

“Returning after 20 years to finish my degree was not only one of my long-terms goals, but it also provided me the opportunity to expand my knowledge while demonstrating the importance of education to my children. Huntington College not only provided a challenging academic environment through its EXCEL Program, but the tools I acquired will last a lifetime,” said Jeff Hazel, President and General Manager of Oasis Group in Lima, Ohio.

For information on the best strategy for leadership success through Huntington College’s EXCEL Program for Adults, attend the informational meeting on March 6, at the high school campus of Blackhawk Christian School, connected to the church building at 7400 E. State Blvd. (south side), Fort Wayne. The meeting will be held in Room 173-5 Library. For further information, visit the web at www.huntington.edu/excel.
