The Harry S. Truman Club contributed $1,000 to Cleveland State Community College's Community First Capital Campaign.

This gift was made by the club in honor of Steve Robinson, a long-time member of the club, and a long-time supporter of Cleveland State.

"Cleveland State has a unique opportunity to receive $25 million from the State of Tennessee for the construction of a new health and science building and the renovation of the Mary T. Barker Humanities building, but they must raise $2.5 million as a ten percent match," officials said.

"The Harry S. Truman Club is happy to play a small part in this fund drive, and members encourage the community to join them by making a gift and helping the college reach their goal," officials said.
