A letter from Pat...
Being a professor at Pellissippi State Community College has been a rewarding experience. For me, it’s always been about supporting students. Over the years, I have enjoyed hearing from former students about their continuing education experiences and pathways to successful careers. I hope that being a part of one of my classes helped you along the way.
In the near future I will be retiring from Pellissippi State. This has caused me to reflect on how I can continue to support the College. I have decided to make a contribution to support the new 82,000 square-foot Science and Math Building set to open fall 2021. Our future students will have state of the art equipment and classrooms designed for science education. This new $27 million building project will be announced during a kick-off event at the Hardin Valley Campus on Friday, February 1st at 10:15 a.m. I hope you will mark your calendar to join me. I would love to reconnect.
Today, I am asking you to join me in support of this transformative project that will improve the way we deliver science education and prepare future students for the workforce. Tennessee’s community colleges are required to provide a 10 percent match for all state building projects. The local match is $2.7 million. We are making progress, but we need your help. Would you consider making a donation to support a “Students of Patricia Zingg” science lab?
