Roane State: a place to succeed

Student with Success Coach

“I was really nervous about the college admissions, financial aid, and class registration process. However, my Success Coach, Sue Niemi, made all those processes very easy and accessible. Working with my Success Coach created feelings of comfort, inclusion, and belonging, which overall guided my college career in a positive direction!”

Photo of the President's Award Winner

“I was beyond shocked when my name was called. Being so young, and the only Middle College student up on stage, I felt as if I didn’t have a chance. It’s an honor to be presented this award because of how hard I worked. I chose pharmacy to help others through my prior experiences. I will always be grateful for the opportunities Middle College allowed me. In two years, I’ve obtained over 80 hours to get my prerequisites for pharmacy.”
