As the late, Nelson Mandela said best, “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” The Cleveland/Bradley Chamber of Commerce hosted its annual ‘Salute to Education’ to honor system-level, building-level ‘Teachers of the Year’, for a more than 20-year tradition.  Teachers from the Bradley County, Cleveland City School Systems and Tennessee Christian Preparatory School were celebrated, surrounded by their families, peers, educational administrators and community leaders, with a Chamber maximum capacity crowd.
“Education is one of the cornerstones of a growing and vibrant community,” states Sherry Crye, director of workforce development for the Cleveland/Bradley Chamber of Commerce. “It is also a vital part of all economic and community development – the two key missions of the Chamber.”  This tradition is a hallmark of the workforce development initiatives which pays tribute to the educators in the community.  
Every teacher left the reception, hosted by the Education and Workforce Development Committee, with a gift from the generous Chamber-member sponsors who contributed money, gift cards and prizes.
