CTE Directors in Southeast, TN were invited to see the state of manufacturing in Tennessee. Chattanooga and Cleveland were the locations for the presentation by Denise Rice, Director of TMA. In Cleveland, Resolute Forestry Products hosted the roadshow which outlined employer needs for a trained workforce, workforce data, information about the Industrial Internet of Things and Industrial Revolution 4.0. After viewing the program, CTE Directors recognize Career and Technical Education programs are needed now more than ever training students for the jobs of the future, preparing a pipeline of skilled workers.
