Tusculum University holds first graduation since converting to university


Tusculum University held their fall graduation ceremony this morning in Greeneville.

This was the first graduation Tusculum has held since it converted to a university in July.

Officials say about 300 students graduated at Saturday inside Pioneer Arena inside the Scott M. Niswonger Commons on campus. 

For some graduates like Courtney Hammett, who received a Masters of Arts in Teaching, she already has a job lined up.

“I just found out yesterday I have a job teaching kindergarten, so I will start kindergarten in January,” Hammett said. “I’m so excited to put all I’ve learned and my experiences to use with those sweet babies.”

Saturday’s graduation ceremony included students from Tusculum’s locations in Greeneville, Knoxville and Morristown.
