Meet New Memphis CP Lee Jones

health care career college

There’s a new sheriff in town. Well, at least at Concorde’s campus in Memphis, Tenn. where Lee Jones becomes the newest Campus President at the health care career college.

Lee comes to us from back east where he worked for several career colleges along the east coast. He worked in many various roles at those institutions, giving him a broad intellectual and tactical base in operating a health care career college.

In this latest installment of “Get to Know Your Campus Presidents,” we’ll learn about Lee’s favorite TV show, his hidden ability to carry a tune and that he comes from a rather large family.

Let’s meet Lee Jones.

WHAT’S BEEN YOUR JOURNEY TO BECOMING A CONCORDE CP?

I have worked in the proprietary education field for the past 15 years.

I have worked in several roles, including Director of Admissions, Campus President, Regional Center Director and Regional Director of Operations.

WHAT’S BEEN THE BEST PART ABOUT BEING A CAMPUS PRESIDENT?

I enjoy the interactions with the staff and the students at the campus on a daily basis. I enjoy changing the lives of our students and watching them cross the graduation stage.

IS THERE ANYTHING THAT MAKES THE MEMPHIS CAMPUS STAND OUT?

The Memphis campus has a great staff. I was blessed to have inherited such a professional and knowledgeable staff. Great people to lead and work with.

WHAT’S THE BEST PIECE OF ADVICE YOU EVER WERE GIVEN?

Always be true to yourself and be the individual that works!

Davina Thomas-Clark | Medical Assistant, Vocational Nurse graduate

“I have taken the MA program and the LVN program. Concorde is a wonderful school. There is a difference between passion and a paycheck, and most of my instructors had a passion for what they do. The program was challenging but well worth it. I love this college!”

Marcus Streator | Respiratory Therapy graduate

“Without the support of certain instructors … I would not have pushed myself to grasp the concepts and pass my boards on the first attempt. Once I passed my boards, it was less than one month after that I landed my first Respiratory Therapist job where I am currently working with so much joy every day.”

Andrea Nolan | Dental Assistant graduate

“Knowing I could be working as a Dental Assistant in eight months was crazy to me! I loved going to class and would drive an hour there every day. I’m truly happy that I took the step to go to Concorde. It was the best thing I have done for my family.”

Randall Hines | Polysomnographic Technologist Graduate

“I think it’s an amazing school. When I sat down for boards, I felt more than adequately prepared. If you put the work in, your success is almost guaranteed.”

Allison Hamm | Dental Assistant graduate

“I enjoyed every second of my time at Concorde. I learned so much in a short amount of time. I spent my extern at Forney Modern Dentistry in Forney, Texas and was hired on immediately. I have now been there for almost four years. I recently was promoted to Pediatric Manager at our Garland location. I give all the credit to this amazing school and my great experience there.”
