Meet Henry Pace
Henry enjoys his role as a resident assistant (RA) and his studies as a junior mechanical engineering major. "What's not to like about Tennessee Tech?! I really like the community feeling we have, and I've met some great friends on campus and in Cookeville. Plus, it's affordable to go to school here, so I won't leave owing a ton of money. I plan to go on to get my master's after I graduate, and this program is preparing me for that next step."
