Volunteer State Community College will host a series of KEY lectures to promote lifelong learning.
KEY stands for “Keep Educating Yourself.”
The objective of these lectures is to keep participants minds engaged while informing them of various topics ranging from honey bees to caring for the elderly.
The discussion topics will be discussed in the following order: “Elder Care Law Issues,” “Wizard of Oz,” “The Reformation – 1517,” “Honey Bees 101,” “Tennessee Self-Defense Law and Firearm Simulator,” and “The Korean War and the Relevance to Current Political Issues.”
More information and descriptions of each lecture can be found on the Vol State website.
Poet, translator, scholar, and anthologist Stephen Mitchell says, “Education is no longer thought of as a preparation for adult life, but as a continuing process of growth and development from birth until death.”
The KEY Lifelong Learning Lectures are open to the public.
The lectures will be occurring every Friday between March 8, and April 12, from 9:15 a.m. to noon, and they will take place in Caudill Hall, room 102.
Vol State student, Daniel Salazar, says that he was unaware of the KEY Lifelong Learning Lectures, but he is interested in looking into them.
“It is important to me to keep my mind active and learn new information. Programs like KEY give me and other individuals the opportunity to learn new things that might not be common knowledge,” said Salzaar.
Individuals who are interested in attending the lectures can register by calling Vol State Continuing Education at (615) 230-3358, registering online at https://registration.xenegrade.com/volstate or visiting in-person at the 300 Building, room 106.
