The City of Tallassee and Troy University have entered into a partnership to give city employees a 10% scholarship on tuition for all TU programs, including online classes.
In addition to the scholarship, Troy University officials said application fees for all City of Tallassee employees will be waived.
“The partnership will enable city employees to pursue degrees that could lead to advancement within the organization,” TU project and corporate relations coordinator Lynne Firmin said.
The aim of the partnership is to further grow the community through the enrichment of its participants.
“This new partnership will support continued professional development and education for City of Tallassee employees through the numerous degree programs and learning formats available at Troy,” Firmin said.
Tallassee Mayor Johnny Hammock called the partnership a great opportunity for city employees.
“I think is a great benefit for the City of Tallassee to work with Troy University in developing the highly skilled workforce we need,” Hammock said. “This is a great opportunity for city employees to take advantage of this scholarship and further their education.”
