Gov. Bill Haslam commended Greene County educational and workforce development efforts today when he spoke at a luncheon hosted by the Greene County Partnership Manufacturers' Council.

Haslam, who addressed the crowd at the General Morgan Inn less than 24 hours after delivering his fourth State of the State address in Nashville, complimented Greene County's "pathways" initiative. The project was developed earlier this year by a committee made up of local educational and manufacturing professionals and is designed to provide a structured means for a student to decide on a career direction — and then to gain the necessary education to reach the specific job and earning level the student desires.

Haslam called it a "model for what we're trying to do."

Haslam also spoke about his newest initiative, announced yesterday: the "Tennessee Promise." Through it he plans to offer free tuition to the state's two-year community and technical colleges as a way to better train the state's workforce.

For more details about Haslam's presentation in Greeneville, see the Wednesday edition of The Greeneville Sun.
