This is the first time for Vol State to host the Summit.
The summit is from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. During the Summit individuals will learn about the most important environmental issues during breakout sessions with speakers from places like Bridgestone-Firestone, Nissan, and Mars Candy. There will also be a tree planting on the campus grounds around 2:30 p.m.
Students can get involved by registering for the Summit online at www.sustainabletn.org. The normal registration fee is $75, but the student registration fee is only $15. There are no deadlines for the registration, but Hagel suggests that everyone register a day in advance to ensure there are enough lunches.
