ELIZABETHTON. – With the coming of May, most of the schools in the region are looking forward to graduation and summer vacation. Not so at the Tennessee College of Applied Technology Elizabethton.

The college’s bookstore was a beehive of activity Tuesday as students returned to begin the Summer Trimester that ends Aug. 24. Pictured from left are Patricia Henderson, student services coordinator, Jackie Woodward, bookstore technical support, and Ranee Dula, administrative assistant.

“We are pleased with the turnout of students using the Tennessee Promise and Tennessee Reconnect grants for two years of free tuition to attend TCAT Elizabethton after all financial assistance has been applied. It is in line with Gov. Bill Haslam’s Drive to 55, where 55 percent of Tennesseans will hold a certification or postsecondary credential by the year 2025,” according to Dean Blevins, president of TCAT Elizabethton.

Eleven full-time training programs at TCAT Elizabethton may be completed in 12 to 20 months. Financial assistance, up to $2,592 per trimester, is available to qualified students.
