Hilda Solis, U.S. Secretary of Labor, got a birds-eye view of how Roane State will use its portion of $12.57 million in grant funds from the RX-Tennessee grant.
The funds were awarded to a consortium led by Roane State and including the Tennessee Board of Regents’ community colleges and Tennessee Technology Centers.
“This was a competitive process. This was a national competition and, of course, your state, this campus, came out ahead. I’m very pleased to be here today to make this announcement,” Solis said.
