Eastman Credit Union recently announced its support of $125,000 to sponsor East Tennessee State University’s (ETSU) Roan Scholars Summer Experience Program. 

“The mission of the Roan Scholars program perfectly aligns with ECU’s desire to make our communities and region a better place to live, work, and raise families. These students are leaders with a passion to make a difference, and it’s a privilege for ECU to support the Summer Experience Program,” said Kelly Price, ECU’s President and CEO. 

The Roan Scholars Leadership Program, which is funded primarily by private donations, empowers students to be leaders of excellence who will positively impact the ETSU campus, the region, and the world.  

“The exceptional students selected to the Roan Scholars Leadership Program continue to exemplify the mission of East Tennessee State University long after they graduate,” said ETSU President Brian Noland. “Out-of-the classroom experiences help cultivate their dedication to improving the lives of the people of our region, and to leading that transformation. This partnership with ECU will enhance those experiences and directly impact the next generation of regional leaders.” 

ECU is a long-time supporter of various ETSU programs that positively impact the communities served by ECU. For more information about the Roan Scholars Leadership Program at ETSU, visit
