Connecting the Community 

Vision: To recruit and retain the best and brightest in order to move our community forward

Mission: To connect educators with stakeholders and business leaders to fully utilize available resources to benefit students in Coffee County

We believe:
• all students can perform at a high level.
• essential skills are required for all employment.
• business and community involvement is key in preparing students for postsecondary education and workplace success.

The committee works to actively solicit opportunities for business leaders to be present in the classroom, provide career exploration opportunities for Coffee County students, and to market Manchester and Coffee County as a great place to educate kids.

We were honored to have been selected to do a presentation on Project WEB at the Tennessee Counseling Association Conference held during November 2017 in Nashville.  TCA, a branch of the American Counseling Association, was founded in 1973 and is the largest professional association in the state. 
Project WEB, under the direction of Dr. LaDonna McFall, VP of Workforce Development, aims, ultimately, to recruit and retain the best and brightest students in order to move our community forward.  Click here to learn more about Project WEB.
