The Kingsport Higher Education Center has been created by a strong
relationship between city officials, local educational institutions and
local businesses.‚  The Higher Education Program has received national
recognition and the Higher Education Center will serve as the main
facility of the quickly growing Kingsport Higher Education Academic
Campus.‚  The building boasts administrative offices, state of the art
computer facilities, new congressional offices and a large auditorium,
among an array of various classrooms.

"On behalf of the Board of Mayor and Alderman, we offer out deepest
thanks to our community volunteers, outstanding design team, builders,
and city staff, who spent countless hours making this project
possible, said Mayor Dennis Phillips.‚  We also deeply appreciate the
many contributions of Domtar Inc. and Eastman Chemical for their
continuing support and active role in the community as genuine
corporate citizens." said Mayor Dennis Phillips.
