Thomas Nelson Community College (TNCC) has been awarded a $40,000 grant from Dominion Resources to install a green roof on its existing greenhouse on the Hampton campus. TNCC’s Electronics students will gain hands-on experience while installing solar panels in the facility. The College’s Biology students will plan projects that involve use of the space.

Dominion Resources, which comprises Dominion Virginia Power, awarded more than $1 million dollars in grants to community colleges and four-year institutions statewide to support programs in business, skilled craft, engineering, environmental and technical studies. Funding also supports student-led conversation programs. Old Dominion University and Hampton University were also among the recipients in Hampton Roads.
