Commissioner Candice McQueen visited Macon County to continue her Classroom Chronicles tour. McQueen has connected with over 10,000 teachers, 75 districts and 125 schools to see how policies and practices are implemented at local schools. Also, McQueen believes the tour provides the opportunity to identify other needs in the communities and offers a chance for educators to provide feedback. This year’s tour will focus on hearing from the students; how they are preparing for post secondary education.

McQueen stated, “My take away from today’s meeting is hearing the strengths presented by the school administration reiterated by the student body of MCHS—College and Career readiness.”

BJ West stated, “It is a huge honor to have the TN Commissioner of Education, Candice McQueen, visit Macon County and share our success stories.”
