The TCAT-Newbern Institutional advisory committee met on August 10, 2017. The institutional advisory committee is comprised of local business and industry partners, as well as local educational partners and economic development personnel. The committee was updated on new TCAT-Newbern personnel.

TCAT-Newbern representative spoke about the LEAP Grant awarded to TCAT-Newbern and used to implement a Machine Tool program at Dyersburg High School. The committee was updated on the high school Welding dual enrollment opportunities at local high schools (Obion County, Lake County, Dyer County, Dyersburg, Gibson County). The committee was informed of TCAT-Newbern's proposed Diesel/Automotive training building, which will be a 4 million dollar project occurring on the main campus if awarded. The committee was provided with the most current completion rates (84%), placement rates (84%), and licensure rates (78%).

All were in agreement that each person should do a bigger part in promoting technical education, since these jobs are needed by current employers and prospective industries seeking relocation to our area.

(L-R) Donnie Walton: Asst. Director TCAT-Newbern - Rep. Sanderson - Donna Hastings: President TCAT-Newbern - Deica Disney: Student Services Coordinator TCAT-Newbern - Lindsay Frilling, OCJEDC - Mrs. Sandra Prince: Four Rivers Regional Nursing Advisor.
