Kevin Rose 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.
