“My Future is Bright” was the theme of a Welcome Back event held for students at TCAT Elizabethton on Friday.

TCAT Director Dean Blevins was moderator for the event.  The encouragement for students to complete their job training came from brief remarks presented by State Representatives Timothy Hill, John Holsclaw, Jr. and Carter County Mayor Leon Humphrey.

Hill said TCAT graduates were driving the economy. Holsclaw said technical education is resulting in Tennessee being number one in job growth.  Humphrey said TCAT Elizabethton was the crown jewel in in the region and complimented students, faculty, staff and administration for the job they were doing.
