The Chamber is hosting The University of Tennessee Chancellor Jimmy Cheek for its last breakfast speaker series of the year, at 7:30 a.m., Tuesday, Nov. 30.

Were excited to have him because of all of our concerns about education in Tennessee and wanting to make it better. Were anxious to hear what he has to say about UTs plans for this year and for down the road, Chamber president and CEO Bettye Sisco said.

Hes been working in education all his life, so therefore is extremely dedicated to its cause and its growth.

I understand hes really a great speaker entertaining and enjoyable, she added.


Cheek is UTs seventh chancellor and has been serving at various universities for most of his career. He was the first member of his family to attend college.

Sisco said this speaker breakfast was an excellent chance for community activists to learn more about education and its impact on economic growth.

We all talk about whats going on with education, and heres our opportunity to learn more about it so we can do something about it, Sisco said.
