After a two-year hiatus caused by the COVID pandemic, TCAT-Elizabethton is having graduation this fall. It will be the first graduation for TCAT-Elizabethton’s new president, Dr. David Hicks.
“I look forward to participating in the ceremony to showcase the class of 2022 who have been trained for employment in their chosen line of work,” said Hicks, who succeeds Dean Blevins, who retired after completing 34 years of work in the field of career and technical education.
