The president of Freed-Hardeman University will discuss the university’s plans for growth with the acquisition of The Renaissance Center when he is the guest speaker at next month’s Dickson County Chamber of Commerce Luncheon. Dr. Joe Wiley will speak at the luncheon at noon Monday, Feb. 10, at GreyStone Golf Club. The luncheon is $12 for chamber members and the deadline to RSVP is Wednesday, Feb. 5. The Jackson Foundation gifted The Renaissance Center to the Henderson, Tenn.-based university in November. Last month Wiley announced that an agreement had been reached to allow Nashville State Community College to continue offering classes at The Renaissance Center, but no announcement has been made regarding the current classes offered by Austin Peay State University. Freed-Hardeman has said it plans to bring four-year degree classes and graduate-level courses to the Dickson campus, but has not determined in what fields of study. The university is currently conducting an online survey of chamber of commerce members regarding what areas of study would be most desirable in their future employees. Freed-Hardeman also pledged to continue with the community classes and workshops that have been offered through The Renaissance Center since it opened in 1999. While some music and art programs have been scheduled for the spring semester, no determination has been announced regarding the community theater, field trips and other programs. To RSVP for the Feb. 10 luncheon, call the chamber of commerce at 446-2349.
