Maryland Heights, MO (PRWEB) June 16, 2011
Anthem College—Maryland Heights will mark its 30-year anniversary June 21 with an Open House for prospective students and the presentation of a new Student Center.
Local officials plan to attend the event, including Missouri Rep. Mary Nichols and Debbie Cochran, area director for U.S. Rep. Todd Akin. Both represent the Maryland Heights area. Former Missouri Senator Rita Day will also attend, representing County Executive Charlie Dooley.
Fenton Mayor Dennis Hancock will represent Maryland Heights Mayor Mike Moeller. Anthem College has a sister campus in Fenton.
Anthem College and Allied College alumni, local employers and the general public are invited as well.
The Open House will be held from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. A public ribbon cutting ceremony for the new Student Center begins at 1:30 p.m., when the results of a student vote for the Center’s name will be announced as well.
Radio station Z107.7 will be onsite from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. to interview Anthem College students who serve the campus as Student Ambassadors. Massage Envy, which has hosted field trips for numerous Anthem College massage therapy students and hired several after graduation, will host a booth where guests can get information of their spa packages.
The College has a solid history of recognition and awards. Recent examples include:
- The College’s annual Trauma Day event was featured in the newsletter for the Accrediting Bureau of Health Education Schools (ABHES). Trauma Day, which was created by Criminal Justice Instructor Tabatha White, allows students to practice their skills during a simulated disaster.

- Shevelle Flowers, a medical assistant student at the Maryland Heights campus, won ABHES’ Richard Luebke Memorial Scholarship in January.
