The Martinsville Campus of American National University recently participated in the 2015 Fast Track Trade Show sponsored by the Martinsville Henry County Chamber of Commerce. This premier event is held annually to allow area businesses and organizations to showcase their products and services and to promote social interchanges between the participants and the public. ANU was among 130 businesses and organizations that staffed a booth for the occasion, which recorded nearly 4,000 people in attendance.
The campus staff greeted visitors and offered a history of American National University and a description of programs at the Martinsville Campus. Department chair Pam Van Nutt’s Preparatory Computing class visited the trade show to view the newest computer technology in their product offerings.
Visitor Samantha Moore spotted the ANU booth and stopped by to share that her daughter Jessica Moore was a graduate. “My daughter attended American National University and is working and loving her job,” said Samantha. “She speaks very highly of her education received from the University.”
“It provides a great opportunity to network with businesses, find out about employment opportunities, and invite people to our upcoming events,” said career center director Sheree Spencer of the trade show. “The Trade Show allows us to meet a large number of people at one time,” added director of admissions Barbara Rakes. “I especially enjoyed speaking with area veterans and telling them about ANU and our Blue Ribbon Grant.”
