Tennessee Promise Deadlines Dec. 1st
Tuesday November 21, 2017

Two important Tennessee Promise deadlines occur on Dec. 1, 2017. All current Motlow State Community College students have until Dec. 1 to complete eight hours of community service in order to remain eligible for the Tennessee Promise scholarship. The same deadline applies for anyone interested in volunteering to become a Tennessee Promise mentor.
Students who still need to complete their community service hours can visit the Motlow Tennessee Promise webpage at tnpromise.mscc.edu/service-opportunities for an up-to-date listing of community service opportunities in their area.
Students can also visit the tnAchieves website at tnachieves.org/community-service for a listing of community service opportunities for students in their local region. Community service hours can be submitted to the tnAchieves website as well.
Motlow Tennessee Promise Coordinator Debra Smith is urging any interested Motlow faculty, staff and administrators, and members of the general public to apply to the tnAchieves mentor program. Mentors play a critical role in assisting students as they navigate the challenges of post-secondary education.

WTVF Monday November 20, 2017

More Americans will travel this Thanksgiving than the past 12. The travel organization AAA released its annual holiday travel forecast Thursday.
It predicts nearly 51 million Americans will travel at least 50 miles to celebrate the holiday. That's a 3 percent increase from last year, and the highest number since 2005.
Travelers can expect to pay more for gasoline than years past, but less for airfare.
AAA expects 89 percent of travelers to get to their destination by driving. Travel experts said the high number of travelers is a good indicator people are earning money and feel comfortable spending it.

AP Monday November 20, 2017

A study says international student enrollment in Tennessee grew by nearly 10 percent in 2016, but several colleges have reported a decline in the number of new international students.
The Knoxville News Sentinel reports Open Doors released the study Monday. The Institute of International Education says Open Doors is an information resource supported by a federal Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs grant.
According to Opens Doors' report, more than 9,900 international students were in Tennessee in 2016.
Tennessee Technological University is among schools with declining enrollment. Since 2014, its international student enrollment has decreased more than 50 percent.
Officials say factors that have affected the enrollment include countries' cuts to scholarship programs and prospective international students' perceptions of the political climate in Tennessee.
