  • 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.

  • Student Government Day trains future leaders

    Roane County Executive Ron Woody has designated April 21 as Student Government Day 2011.

    More than 100 students from Harriman, Oliver Springs and Roane County high schools played victims or medical personnel during a disaster drill last week on the Harriman High School football field.

    “This is one event that is looked forward to each year by all health science students,” said instructor Ronna Carlton, who serves as director of the event.

  • TTC helps Boy Scouts with merit badges

    Metalworking and automotive maintenance students enrolled at Tennessee Technology Center at Harriman recently helped 25 area Boy Scouts earn their Merit Badges.

    The students took part in the Merit Badge College at Roane State Community College and assisted scouts during the hands-on portion of their badge certification.

    The metalworking students forged iron to twist and pound it on an anvil to form a hook that they riveted onto a steel base to form a holder for a medallion.

    These skills earned the scouts a metalworking badge.
