Haslam cuts ribbon on science lab at RSCC Campbell campus

Even before Gov. Bill Haslam did the ribbon-cutting honors, Roane State’s new science lab on its Campbell County campus is proving its worth. Upcoming fall semester classes where lab study is required “are already filled,” Gov. Haslam told a large crowd celebrating the vitally needed addition during a July 5 ribbon-cutting ceremony. “This meets a direct need we have here in Campbell County for more exposure to the sciences,” Gov. Haslam said while touring the lab. “I’m thrilled we were able to meet that need.” Before the addition, Campbell County students who needed science classes that included lab work had to drive to another Roane State campus to fulfill that requirement.
