Smith named Director of Adult Education at ESCC

Jonathan Smith has been named the new Director of Adult Education at Enterprise State Community College.

In this position, Smith is responsible for the overall administration, planning, implementation, and evaluation of the Adult Education program.

Smith has worked in Adult Education for 10 years. Since 2016, he has served ESCC as an adult education instructor and data entry coordinator. In this position, he provided instruction in multiple areas of adult education, including GED preparation, career pathways, digital literacy and National Career Readiness Certificates and workforce preparation. He also assisted in training new adult education instructors and served on committees to create new curriculum for the local program.

Smith has assisted over 125 students in obtaining their GED or Alabama High School Diploma.

Prior to joining the ESCC team, Smith served as the Adult Education Instructional Coordinator at Wallace Community College for four years starting in 2012. He has also previously taught biological sciences at Abbeville High School for 8 years and served as a school improvement team peer mentor for the Alabama State Department of Education.

Previously, Leigh Shiver served as the Director of Adult Education and Workforce Development. In the last few years, ESCC has seen an increase not only in the number of partnerships with local business and industry leaders that have led to more workforce training opportunities for the College and Wiregrass but also in the number of students taking advantage of services offered through the College’s Adult Education program. These services include the Alabama High School Diploma Options Program, GED, ESL classes, and National Career Readiness Certificates.

As a result of the growth in these two areas, Shiver will continue to serve as the Director of Workforce Development while Smith serves in his new role as Director of Adult Education.

“Everyone in our Adult Education Program works hard to provide the education, training and support our students need, and Jonathan Smith is no exception,” Shiver said. “He has a passion for helping the students in our Adult Education program, and many of our students have benefitted from his dedication to their success. I’m thrilled to have him step up to lead this program in this role, and I know he will do great work as the Director of Adult Education.”

Smith said he was excited to get started in his new role.

“I’m proud of the Adult Education program here at Enterprise State,” he said. “The students in our program are working hard for their future, and I’m ready to do what I can in this position to provide even more support to help them succeed.”
