Saturday marked a very special day in the Phillips household as 47-year-old Donna Phillips and her 22-year-old daughter Brooke Phillips both recieved bachelor of science degrees from Tennessee Tech. Thanks to a partnership between Motlow College and Tennessee Tech, area students of all ages can earn a four-year teaching degree from Tennessee Tech without traveling to Cookeville. In the 2+2 Elementary Education Program, students complete an associate of science degree at Motlow College and can transition easily into the Tennessee Tech program.
