By Mike Cooper, West Kentucky Star Staff
MAYFIELD - A ribbon cutting formally opening the Sullivan University Mayfield Learning Center was held Friday afternoon at 12:30.

Sullivan University President and CEO, Dr. Jay Marr, told those in attendance that Sullivan is proud to be part of the Western Kentucky area. He told of how the organization started in 1962 with seven students and five faculty members, in Louisville. Today, Sullivan has over 3,500 students, with campuses in Louisville, Lexington, and Ft. Knox, and Learning Centers in Carlisle (Nicholas County), Louisa (Lawrence County), and now in Mayfield-Graves County.

Graves County Judge Executive Jesse Perry commented that it was a great day for Graves County. He expressed appreciation to Sullivan University for their decision to come to the community, as it will fill a large void left by the departure of Mid-Continent University.

David Keene, Sullivan University Vice President-Community Partnerships, spoke with West Kentucky Star about the new Mayfield Learning Center. Keene said, "all of the counties west of Kentucky Lake, we're here to serve those people, and we're very happy to be here. We will be working with employers, we will be working with people that just want an advance in their careers, and possibly with high school students that are coming to us straight out of high school. But we're here to help develop the workforce in the region."

Sullivan University is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges to award associate, bachelor, master, and doctoral degrees. Program areas include hospitality, business, paralegal studies, justice and public safety, pharmacy, medical and health sciences, information technology, graphic and interior design, HVAC-R, advanced manufacturing and human resources. Their College of Pharmacy has the only three-year accelerated Doctor of Pharmacy program in the State of Kentucky. They also offer a Master of Science Physician Assistant program.
