One Bank of Tennessee is now a Roane State Athletics Champion Sponsor following its recent donation of $10,000 to Roane State Foundation.

One Bank representatives presented a check during a home basketball game at Roane State’s flagship campus in Harriman. The funds will support each of the college’s ten sports teams.

“One Bank of Tennessee is proud to support Roane State Athletics,” said Ammon Hitchcock, One Bank Vice Chairman. “We hope our gift helps bolster the athletics program, benefiting student-athletes and our shared communities.”

Roane State currently offers men’s and women’s basketball, cross country, and golf, as well as baseball, softball, and women’s volleyball. The college’s new Lady Raiders soccer team is also set to begin competition this fall.

“Everyone at Roane State extends their heartfelt gratitude to One Bank of Tennessee for its generous $10,000 donation to our athletics program,” said RSCC Athletics Director David Lane. “One Bank’s support will enhance opportunities for our student-athletes and strengthen our commitment to fostering sports excellence and community engagement.”

“We couldn’t be more grateful for partners like One Bank,” added Scott Niermann, Roane State Foundation’s executive director. “Support at this level means we can continue to help our students reach new goals every day.
