3rd-MINDMIND SEGMENT- April 18

Topic: Taking the Next Step - Plus 50 Encore College Completion Program

With a growing population of people over the age of 50 in the Tampa Bay region, local colleges are attracting older students to new programs designed to help experienced adults hone skills and perhaps achieve an encore career.  The programs are possible via grants from the Ammerican Association of Community Colleges' Plus 50 Encore Completion Program, which aims to help the growing population with workforce training and preparation for new careers.  The program focuses on fields that give back and are in demand: education, health care and social services.  Of 100 community colleges selected for the program nationwide, three are in the Tampa Bay region.  Sheila Newberry, PhD., program coordinator for the Plus 50 Encore Completion Program at St. Petersburg College and one of her students will be at The Centre to describe this unique and innovative program for adults in their Third Act.

 

 

Dr-Newberry-webSheila Newberry, PhD, RHIT, Program Director, St. Petersburg College, has experienced a varied and successful carreer in public education, long term health care and hospital administration before becoming a program director with two proprietary colleges.  Dr. Newberry has a real passion for the older adult learner (age 50+) and utilized this interest when writing her dissertation for her PhD.  She serves as the Program Coordinator for the Plus 50 Encore Completion program at St. Petersburg College.
