Knoxville (WVLT) State Representative Joe McCord has donated $50,000 to the Pellissippi State Foundation to benefit the college's new Blount County campus.

The funds are part of an allocation to the representative from the state’s Community Enhancement Grant Program.

McCord says that the college is a huge asset to Blount County and all of the surrounding counties too.

The college purchased a building site of just under 40 acres on Highway 321 on February 1st.

School officials say enrollment is very high in the county, so there was a need to expand services and programs.
