Take a moment to watch this footage from Roane State's archives. Prepare to laugh or even shed a tear as you reminisce about what has made, and still makes, Roane State special — its students, faculty and staff.
The Celebration singers lead off our trip back in time. You'll see Chris Whaley, one of our outgoing young students.
Dr. Whaley now serves as Roane State's President.
If you never knew Roane State's first president, this roast will serve as a hilarious and good-natured introduction to this great man (and even greater wife)!
Features Judy Duncan, Ken Yager, Robert Smith, Dr. Harold Underwood, Dr. Scott Sills, Jim Henry, Carroll Marsalis, Sandy Dunbar, Dr. Cuyler Dunbar, and a special message from Marilyn Lloyd. Dr. Louise Greene serves as your roastmaster.
Dr. Pete Charton explains that President Dunbar had high expectations for Roane State and all those who entered its doors.
The core message has pretty much stayed the same over the years, but thank goodness we can't say the same for the hairdos!
Did you know we used to have a Miss Roane State Pageant? Bill Yates is your host for this event.
You saw our first president being roasted and toasted. Now see Dr. Gary Goff, our current president, takin' care of business in WVLT's "Undercover Boss" segment.
