Roane State hosts ‘Welcome Festivals’

Roane State Community College recently hosted Welcome Festivals designed to reach out to the Spanish-speaking community.

The events included food, entertainment, and information about community and education services. Festivals were held in Roane County, Lenoir City, Crossville and Oak Ridge. Combined, the events attracted hundreds of visitors.

“Thank you to all those who helped make this event a success,” said Maria Gonzales, Roane State director of admissions and recruitment. “We especially appreciate those who took time out of their busy schedules to visit the festivals and learn more about the community and education services available to them.”

A grant awarded to Roane State funded the festivals.
