The Roane Chamber is excited to announce a new program under the Leadership Roane County umbrella called Roane County Engage. Want to learn more about Roane County? Want to know what there is to do here and learn about volunteer opportunities to get more engaged with the community? The new leadership program was created and designed for anyone who is interested in learning a little bit of everything about Roane County in two days on March 9 – 10.
“For anyone who answers yes to either of those questions, this 2-day program is for you,” said Roane Chamber Board Member and Roane County Youth Director Kathy Parks, “we have designed this program for those new to the area and anyone who just wants to learn more about Roane County and can’t commit to the year-long Leadership Roane County program.”
“You do not have to be a graduate of Leadership Roane County to take this course either,” added President/CEO Pam May, Roane Alliance. “This new program is designed to introduce or remind you what makes Roane County special in just two days – participants will learn how our history changed the world forever and what makes each of our cities unique to new efforts and opportunities.”
Participants will load up on the bus the morning of Wednesday, March 9 and spend time in Kingston and at the old K-25 site in Oak Ridge. On Thursday, March 10 participants will again take a bus to Oliver Springs, Harriman and Rockwood. Some of the stops will include Roane County’s Courthouse (new and historic), Fort Southwest Point, Roane County Schools, K-25 History Center, Oliver Springs Historic Society Theater & Museum, Tennessee College of Applied Technology, Princess Theater, Roane County’s 911 Center and the Rockwood Event Center.
I’m excited to serve as tour guide for the first Leadership Engage class,” said Director of Fundraising Operations Dina Jackson, Roane State College Community Foundation. “This has been a labor of love to create this new program and I know it is going to not only be a fun two days, but will benefit the Chamber and the County by showcasing what makes Roane County special and encourage people to get more involved to keep it that way.”
