Nashville State Community College has named a director for the new North Davidson campus located in Madison. Dr. Kimberly Malone-Haddox started work on January 4. The North Davidson campus will open to the public later this spring with classes starting the fall semester in August.
“I have been excited for this new campus to open in North Davidson County because it will provide greater access to higher education, paving the way for completion and post-completion success for area residents,” said Malone-Haddox. “The campus is beautiful and will be a community asset for many years. We can’t wait to show it off.”
The North Nashville native brings to the position extensive experience in recruitment, student advisement, program development, teaching, and curriculum development.
“We are thrilled to have Dr. Malone-Haddox as part of the transformation taking place at the College,” said Nashville State President Dr. Shanna L. Jackson. “She will be a key leader in making our goals of increased access, completion, and post-completion success a reality, while also managing campus operations.”
Among the many responsibilities as campus director, Dr. Malone-Haddox will develop community partnerships, participate in strategic planning and accreditation processes, maintain student-focused course schedules, recruit and supervise full-time and part-time staff, promote the College, and coordinate services to students including recruitment, admissions, records, financial aid, testing, and library services.
Malone-Haddox spent 2021 as the regional admission director for Verto Education, where she managed, trained, and assisted in hiring counselors. Prior to that, she served four years as Strayer University’s Nashville campus academic dean and nine years as an instructor teaching Business Administration. Additional experience includes business development manager at Centerstone Research Institute, EPIC System trainer at Vanderbilt University, and 13 years as the operations director for Travelers Insurance.
The Whites Creek High School graduate’s personal higher education journey started at Tennessee State University where she earned a Bachelor of Science in Consumer Science Education. Malone-Haddox went on to earn a Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology from Trevecca Nazarene University, an Executive Master of Business Administration from the Jack Welch Management Institute in Herndon, Virginia, the Joe Gibbs Performance Management Institute Graduate Certificate from Strayer University in Washington, D.C., and a Doctorate of Education in Organizational Leadership from Argosy University School of Education in Phoenix, Arizona.
