Information Fair set at Johnson City campus Feb. 21

With Tennessee Promise the high school kids are alright. Now, the Tennessee Reconnect Act hopes to give adults their turn.

Northeast State invites the public to learn more about returning to college at an Information Fair scheduled Feb. 21 from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the College’s Johnson City campus, 101 E. Market Street. Northeast State hosts this free informative session for adults as well as younger students seeking a college degree or certificate.

Like the Tennessee Promise Scholarship for upcoming high school graduates, the Tennessee Reconnect Act seeks to establish a last-dollar scholarship for adults to attend a community college tuition-free. With this extension of the Drive to 55, which comes at no additional cost to taxpayers, every Tennessean will have the opportunity to enter or reenter public higher education with no tuition expenses.

For more information about this event, contact Northeast State Enrollment Services at 423.323.0229 or
