ATHENS, Texas – That National RV Training Academy (NRVTA) today announced the appointment of Jennifer Beard to the position of admissions director for the school which trains people to become professional RV technicians and inspectors.
A native of Texas, Beard started her job April 12 and is responsible for processing admissions, maintaining student records, and ensuring compliance with government regulations as well as state and federal requirements for officially-recognized training centers in Texas.

It is an essential full-time administrative support position for the academy, said NRVTA Administrator Evada Cooper.
“Jennifer is exactly that type of person we need in this position.
