Gov. Lee makes stop in Crockett County to talk education

CROCKETT Co., Tenn.– Governor Bill Lee made several visits to schools across West Tennessee during the day Tuesday.

Gov. Lee visited Crockett County High School as part of his focus to strengthen schools across the state.

He spoke with students, faculty and members of the school board and said how he was particularly interested in the high school’s Career and Technical Education Program, known as CTE Program.

Lee said investment in public education is important and there is a need to expand the pathways of success for children in the state.

“The reason we passed the Governor’s Investment and Vocational Education Act, the GIVE Act, that strengthens and funds programs like this one. So one of the things we want to do around the state and look at models that we can duplicate, and the one here is a model,” Gov. Lee said.

Gov. Lee also stopped at West Chester Elementary School in Chester County.
