Meet New Memphis CP Lee Jones
Jul. 20, 2017
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.
