The Spring into Action event will be held from 10:00 a.m. to noon at Wayne G. Basler Library (lower level) on the College’s Blountville campus next to Tri-Cities Regional Airport. Attendees should check-in between 9:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. to register for the day’s activities.

The Tennessee Reconnect initiative and Northeast State welcomes adults seeking to return to college and finish a certificate or degree. Parents can bring their children as the day includes fun activities planned for kids while adults learn how a college degree can create a better future for themselves and their families.
