Montgomery is best known for Alabama State but like Alabama A&M shares Huntsville with J.F. Drake Community College, there is H. Councill Trenholm State Community College in Montgomery. Trenholm State is a two year public vocational community college granting associates degrees primarily in healthfields (LPN, radiology/ultrasound, EMT, etc.), culinary arts, manufacturing technology and the trades like HVAC and electricians. It was formed in 1963 by then Governor George Wallace who had been granted direct control over the two year community colleges through a new bill. Trenholm State was formed by the merger of two other technical colleges--John M. Patterson Technical College and H. Councill Trenholm State Technical College. This was controversial at the time since the former was predominantly White. In the end they were merged and the Trenholm campus became the main campus and the Patterson campus the secondary one. The combined school soon became majority Black.

Being a technical college, Trenholm State provides a valuable service in getting Black students into the trades and healthcare professions. Additionally, they have a dual enrollment program for high school students in Central Alabama that allows dual enrolled high school students to take courses free of charge at Trenholm State.

Great information. Community Colleges are a much better option than the for-profit schools that were overpromising and under delivering to students the past 20 years. Accredited, and your earn actual cerification/degrees in your field.

You see that STEM is the future in that region as this school has incentives to route students towards those industries.

Trenholm State Community College accepted into Thurgood Marshall College Fund​

Trenholm State Community College accepted into Thurgood Marshall College Fund​

Montgomery, AL (June 6, 2023) – Trenholm State Community College is one of Alabama’s six historically black community colleges accepted in the Thurgood Marshall College Fund.
The Thurgood Marshall College Fund (TMCF) announced a resolution Tuesday, June 6, 2023, that establishes the following colleges as members: Bishop State, Drake State, Gadsden State, Lawson State, Shelton State and Trenholm State community colleges. Named after the U.S. Supreme Court’s first black justice, TMCF is a nationally recognized nonprofit membership organization that supports more than 50 historically black colleges and universities.
Alabama’s historically black community colleges (HBCCs) are the first historically black community colleges to be inducted into TCMF. Residents who choose to attend Trenholm State or any of Alabama’s HBCCs will now have access to more scholarships and professional development opportunities through this prestigious national partnership.
“Adding community colleges to our membership is part of an intentional move toward a more inclusive talent strategy. A four-year degree is one path but not the only path to career success,” said TMCF President & CEO Dr. Harry L Williams.
Williams continued “HBCCs play a critical role in local and regional economic development by offering workforce upskilling and reskilling programs. HBCCs across the country offer associate degrees and industry-recognized certificates and credentials that can launch students into the workforce to fill skilled positions that offer good pay without the requirement of a bachelor’s degree. HBCCs also offer students the ability to obtain core, academic credits that can be transferred to a four-year university for a bachelor's degree.”
“We are honored to be a part of the Thurgood Marshall College Fund, and our inclusion in this prestigious organization highlights our commitment to provide a quality education to our students. Collaboration with the TMCF, its member colleges, and its external partners will bring a wealth of resources to our students as they work to reach their academic and career goals” said Dr. Kemba Chambers, President of Trenholm State Community College. “We are excited that, through the TMCF, students will have expanded opportunities to reach their full potential and become the future leaders within our society,” continued Dr. Chambers.
“Alabama’s community colleges exist to be a pillar of community for students of all backgrounds to be able to have the resources to reach success, and these national relationships help bolster the advantages and access students have to significant opportunities that support their pursuit of excellence,” said Jimmy H. Baker, Chancellor of the Alabama Community College System.
“The connections students and Alabama’s HBCC leaders will have through the Thurgood Marshall College are bound to strengthen the avenues the colleges provide to residents who trust our colleges with the training they desire for their future, ” continued Baker

Trenholm State Community College signs MOU with Tuskegee University​





Tuskegee, AL (August 9, 2023) – Trenholm State Community College and Tuskegee University have formed a partnership that will provide a seamless transfer process for Trenholm State students to complete their bachelor’s degree. This partnership was formalized with a Memorandum of Understanding Signing Ceremony held today, Wednesday, August 9th at Tuskegee University.

As part of the agreement, Tuskegee will award three transfer students scholarships every fall – a Tuskegee Merit Scholarship; Tuskegee Transfer Grant; and an Alabama Transfer Grant. The agreement also offers a reverse transfer credit opportunity, which allows Trenholm students to transfer to Tuskegee before they have completed their associate degree. Students who are transferring will be allowed to participate in Tuskegee events the semester before they transfer – allowing them to enjoy athletic events; the Learning Resource Center; and Career Services resources.

Dr. Kemba Chambers, President of Trenholm State Community College, stated “We are thrilled to have a new partnership with Tuskegee University. The signing of this articulation agreement is historic and monumental, as this is our first articulation and partnership with Tuskegee University. Having this articulation agreement in place will provide future educational pathways for our students to seamlessly transfer to Tuskegee to complete their bachelor’s degree,” continued Dr. Chambers. Through this partnership, Trenholm State students will have a seamless transfer process, opportunities for transfer scholarships, advising from Tuskegee University advisors, as well as access to other student services and athletic events.

“Tuskegee University is proud to solidify this partnership with Trenholm State Community College, allowing even more students to enjoy the Tuskegee Experience,” said President Charlotte P. Morris. “This collaboration allows Trenholm students to continue their education at Tuskegee and more comfortably advance their academic aspirations.”
