Northeast State hosts Keeping Our Promise event Sept. 4

TNPromiseKickoffInviteNortheast State will host the Keeping Our Promise Kick-off Event on Sept. 4, from 5:00-7:00 p.m. at the Blountville campus, giving Tennessee Promise students the opportunity to meet and fellowship with the mentors who will be guiding them through their first year of college life.

The event, catered by Bare Bones BBQ, gives students a chance to meet their mentor, network with fellow students, and get a Keeping Our Promise t-shirt. Mentors have committed to mentor five Tennessee Promise students for at least one academic year. Peer mentors can earn a stipend of $200 per semester.

There are several mentorship positions still available. To become a mentor or learn more about Keeping Our Promise, contact Jane Honeycutt at jbhoneycutt@northeaststate.edu.
