  • RSCC students see government in action

    Roane State Community College’s international students recently visited the Tennessee State Capitol in Nashville to watch government leaders first-hand.

    “One thing I found interesting is how quickly they make decisions,” said student Elomar Souza of Brazil. “I attended committee meetings back home, and they drag and drag.”

    The students toured the capitol building, watched committee hearings and met state legislators. Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam and state Sen. Ken Yager had their photo taken with the students.
