KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - UCOR, an Amentum-led partnership with Jacobs, has donated $50,000 in support of two Roane State programs. The donation was evenly divided between two programs - Environmental Health Technology and the Chemical Engineering Technology Apprenticeship.

UCOR is a U.S. Department of Energy contractor that is involved in the environmental cleanup of former nuclear facilities.

UCOR is working at the former K-25 Site, the Y-12 National Security Complex and Oak Ridge National Laboratory.

The donation to Roane State will help continue the apprenticeship program for students in Chemical Engineering Technology and it will fund new equipment for the lab. In the past two years, UCOR has provided apprenticeships to eight students in the Chemical Engineering Technology program.

The donation to the Environmental Health Technology program will be used for scholarships for the students and training.
