OAK RIDGE, Tenn. – A video produced by Lake City Middle School students received the most votes in the Anderson County Chamber of Commerce’s third annual Dream it. Do it. competition sponsored by Consolidated Nuclear Security, LLC.
The competition paired students from six Oak Ridge and Anderson County middle schools with area industries to learn about manufacturing.

Jason Bohne, senior director of Communications for CNS, told the students President Harry S. Truman once said, “America was not built on fear. America was built on courage, on imagination and an unbeatable determination to do the job at hand.” He offered, Truman could have simply said “Dream it. Do it.”
