Cutting the ribbon to rededicate the McMillan Chapel at Knoxville College recently were Judith Tolbert, trustee from Fairbanks, Alaska; Dr. Keith Lindsey, interim president of Knoxville College; Dr. Dasha Lundy, trustee; and Dr. Johnny Ford,trustee from Tuskegee, Alabama.
The historic black college, founded in 1875 and built by former slaves and students, was recently accredited for classes. The school promises renovated classrooms to be ready for fall enrollment.
The accreditation came back in May from the Tennessee Higher Education Commission. The college will offer associate degrees in art, math, natural science, social studies and the humanities.
Repairs are currently ongoing at the administration building and courses are also being offered online.
