Instructor Ateba Crocker's Old Dominion University Marketing 311 students will provide support this summer for Thomas Nelson Community College's Mary T. Christian Auditorium as part of a class project.

The auditorium, which hosts concerts and film screenings on the TNCC campus, is a 550-seat, two-story auditorium located in TNCC's Templin Hall. Christian is currently serving her ninth term in the Virginia General Assembly. She was the first African-American and first female elected to the state legislature from Hampton, post-Reconstruction.

Robert W. Elsass Jr., Thomas Nelson vice president for institutional advancement, said the auditorium was in need of marketing support because of a personnel shortage at the college. "The support your class could give us, and most importantly the fresh, outside look at what can be done, will be invaluable," he said in a letter to Crocker.
