A long-standing partnership between two area schools will expand yet again this fall.

Officials with John Wood Community College and Quincy University will enter into two new transfer agreements and enhance a third.

Staring in the fall of 2017, John Wood students can transfer into the new agribusiness and supply chain management programs at QU this fall. JWCC education majors will also be able to take advantage of the new agreement between the two schools this fall.

School officials say the three transfer program agreements address employment needs expressed by businesses and K-12 institutions in the region.
