University and J.F. Drake State Technical College, two historically Black educational institutions in Huntsville, Alabama, have signed a partnership agreement that will allow students at Drake to complete an associate degree program and then transfer their credits to Oakwood University to continue their studies toward a bachelor’s degree.
Tim Allston, director of public relations at Oakwood University, stated why he is optimistic about the agreement: “In today’s culture, one in two marriages fail and divorce, often because the marrying individuals are too young and immature. Not so here, as today we are witnessing the marriage between a 115-year old groom (Oakwood) and a 51-year old bride (Drake State)!”
Here is a video showing the announcement of the new partnership.
