Why does this work matter? Why are you building a pathway locally for adults to come back and complete a degree?
The work is critical because of its ripple effect. Increasing the education attainment level of our region will have continual positive impacts that will affect generations of Upper Cumberland residents and businesses for years to come. We are passionate about supporting adult learners as they turbocharge their careers. The result is a skilled workforce and an economy positioned for success. Building a strong, viable workforce is the key to breaking the cycles of unemployment and poverty. For adults to succeed, to realize their dreams, to set examples of accomplishment and tenacity for their children – these are the reasons this work matters.
