Guest speaker Tom Sims, director of Mission Advancement for the Missionary Servants of the Most Blessed Trinity, stressed the importance of ethics and morals and business and credited Manor with having that as part of the business curriculum.

Sims also talked about the fact that, even with other professions such as veterinary technology and dental assisting, those professionals still work at a business that needs to be kept running and that business professionals need to have an “ownership view” of the business and “be concerned about everything.”


The Liberal Arts Division, on April 12, 2013 presented awards for academic excellence to full and part-time students from each of the division programs: Liberal Arts, Early Childhood Education and Psychology.
