"Scenic Roots" offers conversations that matter in the heart of Chattanooga and the Tennessee Valley.From the mountains to the river, our conversations are rooted deep within every corner of our community - reflecting who we are, who we were and who we can become.We engage with the news that affects our community, behind and beyond the headlines. We build bridges that span from creators and innovators to storytellers and the outdoors. We focus on our challenges as many communities in one - as we celebrate what inspires us. We resonate with countless voices - in words and spaces, sounds and songs.We are "Scenic Roots."Ray Bassett hosts and produces "Scenic Roots" at WUTC.
Grad Students From Ukraine, Living And Learning At UTC
This semester, two graduate students from war-torn Ukraine joined our campus, the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.
Arsen Martyshchuk is pursuing a Master of Public Administration degree in the Department of Political Science and Public Service.
Nina Klimenkova is pursuing an MBA in the Gary W. Rollins College of Business.
They are the first recipients of theUTC Global Response Assistantship, which provides full tuition, room and board, and a monthly stipend - one of only a few graduate programs for Ukrainian students in this country, and the only one in Tennessee.
I spoke with the students - and Dr. Takeo Suzuki, executive director of the UTC Global Center for Education.
