• Pellissippi State Technical Community College pumped an average of $103 million each year into the local economy during the past five years, a new study shows. The 17th annual analysis of the economic impact of the college on the Knox and Blount County area shows that the value of business volume, jobs and individual income amounted to about $518 million in the 1999-2004 period, or about $103.6 million each year. Fred H. Martin, an educational consultant who completed the study, said local business volume, the total amount of business volume generated locally from the college’s direct and indirect expenditures, was more than $258 million for the five-year period. Of that total, more than $197 million came from external, nonlocal revenues, such as state appropriations, state and federal contracts and grants and federal and state student financial aid revenues. Pellissippi State, which opened in 1974, has more than 7,500 students enrolled full-time and part-time in career path and college transfer courses.
