Two local business professionals who serve on advisory committees for Pellissippi State Community College have been recognized for their contributions. The college’s advisory committees are made up of leaders from local business and industry and provide insights and advice on degree programs and courses.
Laura Barron, owner and president of The Barron Group, has served on the Business Administration Advisory Committee since 2005. She volunteers her time as a guest speaker in numerous Pellissippi classes, as well as assists in evaluating business plans in the capstone classes each spring. Barron is a longstanding resource in Pellissippi’s advisory committees planning process.
A member of the advisory committees since the early 1990s, Glen Wright serves on the Video Production Technology Advisory Committee. He is a senior systems engineer with Scripps Network, and he shares his skills and experience with the faculty as they make curricular content and technology decisions. Wright was instrumental in implementing the technology in Pellissippi State’s Bagwell Center for Media and Art.
Barron and Wright were recognized at the annual Advisory Committees Appreciation Dinner on Oct. 27. Both were awarded plaques in honor of their contributions.
