“We are glad to have Steve Conklin join our staff as Director of our new extended campus in Clarksville,” said Eileen Crane, Executive Assistant to Dr. George Van Allen, President of Nashville State Community College. “Steve’s background, experience and Clarksville ties made him an excellent choice for the position.”
