The Chamber’s newest BEST partnership is a relationship between Tennessee Christian Preparatory School and McIntire & Associates Insurance Inc. “We are so thrilled and honored to have McIntire and Associates as our BEST partner,” expressed Dr. Jimmy Harper, Tennessee Christian Preparatory School President. “They are a quality organization with positive impact across our community. This partnership is a huge blessing for TCPS!”
BEST, the acronym for Business & Education Serving Together, is a program of the Cleveland/Bradley Chamber of Commerce that unites the efforts of a business and a selected school for the betterment of both. “We are extremely excited for this new adventure with TCPS,” shared Bob McIntire, President of McIntire & Associates Insurance Inc. “We are looking forward to upcoming projects together and the further community involvement that will prosper from this partnership.”
“The Chamber’s BEST program unites the efforts of a business and a selected school and involves a commitment of time, energy and expertise,” Sherry Crye, the Chamber’s director of workforce development, explained. “The ultimate goal is to help prepare students for the labor force. The intermediate goal is to forge affiliations between a business and a school for the benefit of both.”
Each public school in the Bradley County and Cleveland City School Systems has one or more local business partners. For information about the BEST partnership program, call Sherry Crye at 423-472-6587.
