Host Jeremy C. Park talks with Scott Campbell, Executive Director of Persist Nashville, along with Melissa Watkins, Persist Coach, who both highlight the nonprofit and their efforts to empower Nashville graduates to earn a college degree. During the interview, Scott and Melissa discuss their programs and city-based approach to college persistence, their impact on more than 1,700 Nashville graduates including over 1/3 of the graduating Class of 2021, and their new Persist Career where businesses can work with the nonprofit to set up job shadowing tours for college students, serve as professional mentors, and provide meaningful work experience to Nashville students.Only 27% of Metro Nashville students are earning a college degree (2yr, 4yr, and Technical).  Our vision is to double the rate of college graduates from Nashville.This year we have served over 1752 Nashville graduates including over 1/3 of the graduating Class of 2021.  We have partnerships with MNPS, 5 charter high schools, and the YMCA Black and Latino Achievers programs.This year we launched Persist Career and we are looking for more business partners to support this work.  Nashville businesses can work with us to set up job shadowing tours for college students, serve as professional mentors, and provide meaningful work experience to Nashville students.  If you want to partner check out our website or email partner@persistnashville.orgLearn more:Facebook:              https://www.facebook.com/PersistNashTwitter:                  https://twitter.com/PersistNashWebsite:                https://www.persistnashville.org/Instagram:             https://www.instagram.com/persistnashville/
