The Chamber’s newest BEST partnership is a relationship between Nissan of Cleveland and Cleveland High School. “We love to involve the community into our school and also give our students the opportunity to see real life experiences,” stated Autumn O’Bryan, Cleveland High School principal. “We are very excited to start this new partnership with Nissan of Cleveland.”
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 like to stay involved in the community,” shared Kevin Leyk, Nissan of Cleveland general manager. “Cleveland High School has a shop class, which we plan on bringing students on site to see if this might be a career path they may want to pursue in the future.”
“The Chamber’s BEST program 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 at 423-472-6587.
