Campbellsville University dedicated the new Somerset Education Center recently, which is named for Campbellsville residents Larry and Beverly Noe.

The new center in Somerset will enable CU to expand on the current partnership with Somerset Community College and enable offerings of additional classes and academic programs in the future.

Dr. Michael V. Carter, CU president, said, "This is an historic occasion, and we express sincere thanks to Dr. Larry and Mrs. Beverly Noe for their generous support in making this new location a reality."

U.S. Congressman Hal Rogers was represented by his district director, Karen Kelly.

She quoted Rogers as saying, "When the Noe family believes in a mission, they support it 110 percent. It is only fitting that this Center be named for two people who have invested so much of themselves into the development and growth of Campbellsville University."

Eddie Girdler, mayor of Somerset, spoke to the crowd.

"This is an exciting day in the growing footprint of the university," Dr. H. Keith Spears, vice president for graduate and professional studies, said.  "Teaming with our off-campus centers in Louisville and Hodgenville, the new Noe Center in Somerset gives an eastern Commonwealth anchor that spans nearly 150 miles."

For information about programs available at the center, which include early childhood education, social work, criminal justice, business administration and online theology, special education and organizational leadership, contact Cindy Dishman at cjdishman@campbellsville.edu or (606) 451-8474.
