Dr. Jimmy Carter and I had the pleasure of speaking with Governor Bill Lee today at his Rural Summit in Newport. Our conversation was regarding the construction of a TN College of Applied Technology (TCAT) / Walters State Community College facility on the campus of Union County High School. Our county has the potential to receive TEN MILLION dollars. Just yesterday, Union County was awarded the GIVE Grant for ONE MILLION dollars to purchase equipment to be used in the TCAT facility. This new facility would allow our high school students, and adults, the ability to attend college right here at home.

Thanks to all the folks who are helping to make this dream a reality. I'll keep you posted...
