With the opening of Volunteer State Community College in September 1971, Gallatin’s dream of a strong institution of higher education was realized. Acting on the recommendation of Education Commissioner J. H. Warf and Governor Buford Ellington, the Tennessee General Assembly authorized the creation of the college in Gallatin, Tennessee. Its founding President was Dr. Hal Reed Ramer.
