Bishop State truly is Mobile’s Community College as said best by Dr. Reginald Sykes, Acting President. Bishop State is in the community, for the community, and serving the community in a number of ways. Bishop State has 4 campuses located conveniently throughout the Mobile community. One of the campus locations has easy access to the interstate and is located near major businesses and industries. Hence, Bishop is “in” the community. The college’s workforce development initiatives illustrate that the college is “for” the community. Bishop has and continues to partner with industries such as MAAS Aviation, Alabama Power, and others in an effort to make sure that there is a qualified workforce ready and able to fill jobs that are coming to this area. Many students that have attended Bishop are working in the aviation, maritime, and other growing industries throughout the college’s service area. Bishop is for the business community and the community as a whole. It strives to provide the tools needed to succeed in career development or furthering one’s education at a 4 year college or university. In the true spirit of “serving” the community, Bishop’s students, faculty, and staff give back to the Mobile area in numerous ways. Examples of this can be seen with community service projects. With the upcoming holiday season, students from the barbering program will provide free haircuts to young men that attend the 2016 Inaugural “Meddie Ivory Clark” Breakfast with Santa. Bishop State’s Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society is involved in many community projects such as the 10 Caring Gifts. The students, faculty, and staff, give back to the Mobile Community throughout the year by sharing their time and talents. Bishop State is truly Mobile’s Community College. The college is in the community, for the community, and serving the community. Bishop stands ready and willing to provide educational opportunities with a focus on being a true partner of the Mobile Community. Dr. Reginald Sykes states it best when he says Bishop State is Mobile’s “community college.” Media Contact: Harrietta Eaton, Director of Public Relations 251-405-7135
