Three Honored at Blount Count Job Signing Day

The Blount Partnership is celebrating high school students who took advantage of work-based learning, Career & Technical Education (CTE) and early post-secondary opportunities while in high school and signed-on to a job upon their graduation.

The Blount Partnership promotes the notion that although every student's path may be different, and sometimes nontraditional, there are opportunities for meaningful careers in Blount County for everyone.
