While all the institutions of the society are called by the name ‘Christian’, the Arts & Science College was named after Rev. K.M. Jacob who was popularly called ‘Kottara Achan’ - the longest serving priest from Kerala who also figured in the Guinness Book of World Records. The founder of the CEHD society Padma Bhushan Dr. Jacob Cherian is his son.
Dr. Jacob Cherian and Dr. Mrs. Mary Cherian started over 20 institutions to uplift the disadvantaged villagers in and around Oddanchatram providing health and educational services. The Arts College was established in Ambilikkai, that connects several tiny hamlets whose kids now have the privilege to access college education.
The college is headed by Dr. Nirmala Jeyaraj who was formerly the Principal and Secretary of the renowned Lady Doak College, Madurai. The Principal, Dr. V. Immanuel comes with rich and diverse academic experience, who steers the college in accordance with the institutional vision. Most Heads of Departments and faculty members facilitate effective learning with their rich academic experience.
The college being set on its track to empower rural youth through holistic education I can vouchsafe that anyone who enters the portals of RJMCC will be truly benefitted for life.
