2 Dedications Scheduled At Chattanooga State

Wednesday, June 20, 2018

For more than 50 years, Chattanooga State Community College has served as an educational institution in the Tennessee Valley preparing thousands of students for employment. During the week of June 25, two of the largest college divisions will host dedications to enhance programs offered by each one.

On Monday, beginning at 9 a.m., there will be a dedication of Chattanooga State’s Health Science Center, a 99,000-square foot state-of-the-art facility, which will be renamed as the Erlanger Health Science Center.

Approved earlier this year by the Tennessee Board of Regents, Erlanger has been an community champion for nursing and allied health education since the 1980s.

Expected guests include TBR regents Tom Griscom and Tom White; Erlanger officials Dr. Jan Keys, senior vice president and chief nurse executive; COO Bob Brooks, chief of staff Greg Gentry, chief medical officer Dr. Will Jackson and CFO Britt Tabor, Chattanooga State Foundation board members and administrators.

On Wednesday, beginning at 11 a.m., there will be a ribbon-cutting and dedication of Chattanooga State’s new construction lab in the Center for Engineering, Technology, Arts and Sciences (CETAS) building, accessed via Chattanooga State’s West Entrance. American General Contractors of East Tennessee donated funding for this state-of-the art laboratory that will provide hands-on learning opportunities for students to grow the construction engineering technology program, prepare students for a career in construction and create a stronger partnership with the construction industry.
