Ex-military official to serve as chief academic, administrative officer

National College of Business & Technology has named Richard L. Blankenship director of its Madison campus.

Blankenship (pictured) will serve as the chief academic and administrative officer for the campus and is the college’s senior official within the community.

With more than 20 years of active-duty service with the United States Air Force, Blankenship most recently was the operations manager for the Nashville district recruiting office, at which he managed more than 100 employees and directed and implemented recruiting plans. He also worked as a regional recruiting and sales manager in Jackson, Tenn., and as a health professions recruiter in Gainesville, Fla.

Blankenship holds a bachelor’s degree in business management and organizational development from Bethel University and an associate’s degree in human resource management from the Community College of the Air Force. He will graduate in May with a master’s degree in management from Ohio Christian University.

“With his military experience, Rich has a strong background in leadership,” Cyndee Perdue Moore, vice president for the National College of Business & Technology Tennessee Division, said in a release. “With his background and passion for career training, we look forward to watching the Madison Campus, and its students, flourish under his leadership.”

NCBT's Madison campus offers eight associate degrees and seven diploma programs.
