From WATTAgNet: 
Auburn University and Gadsden State Community College have reached a partnership agreement that will help students seeking poultry science degrees. 
A new 2+2 program between the two schools will allow Gadsden State students to complete their freshman and sophomore years at the Gadsden State campus in Cherokee, Alabama, and their junior and senior years at Auburn University, graduating with bachelor’s degrees in poultry science from Auburn University. During their years at Gadsden State Cherokee, students in the program will complete core coursework, including introductory poultry science classes that will transfer to Auburn. 
Working with officials from Auburn and Gadsden State since 2012, state Sen. Phil Williams, R-Rainbow City, was instrumental in the program’s establishment, pointing to its potential to provide new job training and educational opportunities for the residents of Cherokee County. He said he is pleased with the efforts of leaders on both campuses to turn a “rough idea” he proposed two years ago into a reality that will benefit people not only in his district, but throughout the state.
“With an educated and well-trained workforce, Alabama will continue to move forward,” said State Sen. Phil Williams, R-Rainbow City, a legislator who helped establish the partnership. “The Auburn/Gadsden State partnership is a part of that forward movement.”
A similar partnership between Auburn University and Wallace State Community College, Hanceville, Alabama, was formed in 2013 and has been successful.
