I look forward to working with the Career and Technical Education students in Roane County. As a county our goal is to increase the number of CTE and regular education dual enrollment opportunities so that students will graduate with college college credit and/or industry certifications. Furthermore, we will look to increase the number of CTE students graduating with State Distinction.
Our schools will partner with both the Tennessee College of Applied Technology- Harriman and Roane State Community College to ensure our students are Ready Graduates. I will be working closely with the Roane Alliance to partner with business and industry to increase Work-Based Learning opportunities which will be mutually beneficial.

If you are interested in Work-Based Learning partnerships with our high schools, please contact Lance Duff at (865) 717-5443.
