Leaves are putting on their fall colors and TCAT students are ready to kick back and enjoy Student Appreciation Week. Fall-Fest will arrive at TCAT Elizabethton Oct. 25-28.
Due to COVID-19 precautions, there will be no chili-cook off this year. It has been a tradition until the pandemic forced students to put away their aprons and wait another year to crown the best student chili cooks on campus.
TCAT Student Services Coordinator Patricia Henderson said there still is a variety of other events for students to enjoy.
Crazy Hats and Crazy Socks Day is Monday, Oct. 25, followed the next day with door decorating to depict a fall scene and program of study. The best carved pumpkin, a favorite each year, will be selected on Wednesday, Oct. 27.
Halloween Costume Day will be on Thursday, Oct. 28. Henderson cautioned the costume should be in good taste.
A highlight of the week will be selection of the “People’s Choice Award” pumpkin display with judging by all students, faculty, and staff.
Everything gets underway at 8 a.m. at each TCAT campus location: the Main Campus, 426 Highway 91 north in the Watauga Industrial Park; the Herman Robinson campus, 1500 Arney St., Elizabethton; and practical nursing classes on the ETSU Kingsport Campus at Allandale.

TCAT Elizabethton is also a regional National Coalition Certification Center (NC3). TCAT Elizabethton awards diplomas and certificates in a variety of career and technical education programs that may be completed in three to 20 months.
