Sumter County Named Waldorf Learning Partner

Congratulations to Sumter County (Fla.) on recently being selected as Waldorf College’s Learning Partner of the Month for October.

Rodney Daniels, one of Waldorf’s outreach representatives, traveled to Sumter County to present the award to Kitty Fields, human resources director and learning partner coordinator for Sumter County.

During the presentation and reception, approximately 15 employees attended to share cake and refreshments. A learning partnership with Waldorf allows employees and members of businesses, organizations and municipalities to enjoy a 10 percent discount on tuition and exclusive scholarship opportunities.

Fields said she is happy with the professionalism that Waldorf and Columbia Southern University extend to her employees throughout the enrollment and class completion processes. She added that due to changes in job descriptions, many of the county positions now require a college degree and Waldorf offers programs that will help employees satisfy that requirement.

Pam Webb, a human resource representative and Waldorf student, is very pleased with her Waldorf experience.

“I completed my associate degree through CSU and the transition to Waldorf College to finish my bachelor’s was very smooth. Attending Waldorf as an online student allows me to be an effective employee, attentive mother, and successful college student,” Webb said.

Bill Richards, Sumter County fire inspector and a recent Waldorf graduate, added that Waldorf was the vehicle that brought his previous coursework together into a plan that allowed him to finish his bachelor’s degree.
