Strong Named as Director at CC-Patrick AFB

Columbia, Mo., July 10, 2014 - Harry "HL" Strong, Jr., has been selected as the director of Columbia College-Patrick Air Force Base. Strong has served as the assistant director of the Hunter Army Airfield campus in Georgia since January 2012, and he joined the college as an adjunct faculty member in 2010. This new position won't be Strong's first time at Patrick Air Force Base. He worked on base through service in the United States Air Force as a career assistance advisor and interim first sergeant.

"HL has been a tremendous member of the Columbia College family for several years," said Dr. Jeff Musgrove, vice president for Adult Higher education. "We are confident he will do a terrific job in this new position and look forward to continued growth at the Patrick Air Force Base campus."

Strong earned his master's degree in human resource development from Webster University and his bachelor's degree in art from Malone University.

The search for a new director began after Dr. Musgrove, former southeast regional director and director of the Patrick Air Force Base campus, was hired as the vice president for AHE. Musgrove is in the middle of a move to Columbia, Missouri, and he has already begun his duties as vice president.

Columbia College-Patrick Air Force Base provides a unique educational opportunity to working adults through its degree offerings and eight-week course format, and serves civilian and military learners.
