Listed are the 2018-2019 recipients of the President's Imagination Mini Grant Award:

“Bi-Directional Audio Communication System for Nursing Clinical Learning Center”


Project Lead: Patricia Jenkins

This grant will install a bi-directional communication system in the observation/control room and the patient care room will add audio-visual capability to the existing nursing lab that includes new cabinetry, floor tiles and ceiling tiles; developed nursing station, patient care units with bedside tables and information display boards, and a patient care room.


“The Long Night Against Procrastination Project”


Project Lead: Becca Decker

This project will support pilot of expanded delivery of “The Long Night Against Procrastination” events to additional Roane State campuses. The Library seeks support to develop a sustainable model for project expansion that can be maintained in future years to reach more students without negatively impacting success of Long Night at Oak Ridge.


“Garden Building”


Project Lead: Nancy Humphreys

The purpose of the “Garden Building” project is to provide a storage unit for the RSCC Community Garden along with nuisance fencing to keep deer, rabbits, and other scavengers out of the garden. With hunger being a driving force in the area, the community garden has the potential to provide much needed produce to area food banks.


“Card the Yard”


Project Lead: Tinisha Key

The purpose of the “Card the Yard” project is to allow local businesses, citizens, and schools to proudly show their support for Roane State students by publicly displaying a yard sign in their yard outside of their location. As a result of this project, Roane State brand awareness will be enhanced and others may be motivated to support the college.


“Learning in 3D: Adding a New Dimension to Learning”


Project Lead: Stephanie Shipley

This project will increase student engagement in traditional, hybrid, and online learning environments through high-tech immersive technologies (drone with 4K camera with virtual reality capabilities). The utilization of immersive technologies in the classroom can assist with engaging and connecting students to the curriculum by creating deeper and meaningful learning experiences.


“De-stress for Success”


Project Lead: Susan Sain

The goals of “De-stress for Success” are to increase retention, improve the quality of the college experience, and positively impact lives of current students by teaching them to manage anxiety and stress in healthful ways. This program will allow students to access anxiety reducing activities more frequently and when they are most needed by the students.


"Capture the Dream"


Project Lead: Tracy Powers

The purpose of “Capture the Dream” grant is to provide eighth graders in our service areas an opportunity to imagine themselves at a higher education institution after high school graduation. We will enhance their visit by taking pictures of them using career props and giving them a RSCC pennant to hang in their bedroom or locker.


"PTAs in Action: From Classroom to Community"


Project Lead: Beth Vowell

The project goals are to improve awareness and knowledge about physical therapy and role of the assistant to the college and local community; demonstrate the importance of community service as a contributor to lifelong learning; demonstrate the importance of advocacy for special populations; create long lasting relationships that support the role of physical therapy within the RSCC community; and enhance the employability of our program graduates.
