JDCC promotes Miller
By By Adrienne McKenzie
After more than two decades working in many roles at Jefferson Davis Community College, Cornelia Miller has been promoted to director of adult education.
Miller’s first day as director of adult education was Feb. 11, but she is certainly not new to the JDCC campus.
Throughout the many years at JDCC, Miller has taken on many responsibilities including night receptionist and accounting clerk, financial aid officer, coordinator of testing and GED examiner, accounting technology instructor and technical division chair.
Miller said she is now wearing a new hat as the director of adult education. There are adult education classes on both the Atmore and Brewton JDCC campuses during the day and at night, as well as an English as Second Language (ESL) class at the Brewton campus at night. There is also an adult education class at Flomaton High School.
Jefferson Davis Community College not only reaches out to the “free world,” Miller said. There are also adult education programs taught at Fountain Correctional Facility, Holman Prison and the Work Release Center.
Miller is responsible for budgeting the many adult education courses and activities. She also assists in hiring new faculty and she will attend director meetings when they are called.
Miller is responsible for purchasing all the materials and equipment for adult education and she will approve the travel for the employees.
The new adult education director also has her hands in reporting data on the adult education students.
Adding to Miller’s long list of things to do in her new role, she will also serve on the college’s executive council. She will be the chair of the recruitment and selection committee as well as serve on many other committees at the college.
Miller’s office is located on the Atmore campus, and that is just the way Miller likes it.
Miller said she feels honored about the promotion to director of adult education.
