Park View Elementary and Manufacturer’s Chemicals form new BEST partnerships The Chamber’s newest BEST partnership is a relationship between Park View Elementary School and Manufacturer’s Chemicals LP. “We are honored to partner with Park View Elementary to help provide educational resources in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics,” shared Greg Gibson, president of Manufacturer’s Chemicals LP. “Bradley County has been vital to our sustainability over the last 100 years and it certainly is a privilege to give back to the future generations and the community that has contributed to our success.” BEST, the acronym for Business & Education Serving Together, is a program of the Cleveland/Bradley Chamber of Commerce that unites the efforts of a business and a selected school for the betterment of both. “Park View is ecstatic about Manufacturer’s Chemicals as our new BEST Partner,” expressed Jodie Grannan, principal for the Park View Elementary School. “Our connection in the content areas of science and math will be a real asset to our newly designated STEM school.  We look forward too many opportunities for collaboration.” Gibson added, “Park View’s STEM Program provides educational resources to ensure future generations have the tools and knowledge to help create stronger more resilient communities. But, the most important attribute is seeing how engaged and excited the students are when they are working in the STEM Lab.” Sherry Crye, the Chamber’s director of Workforce Development, also noted, “The BEST partnerships are so important for our schools and for the businesses involved. It is a great way to partner in ways to prepare the future workforce.” Each public school in the Bradley County and Cleveland City School Systems has one or more local business partners.

Back to school security Our Bradley County Schools are back in session and the start of a new school year has begun. I am proud of the dedication and hard work our School Resources Officers put into the job they do to protect our schools. This school year we took considerable steps to increase the security and prevention abilities at our high schools. Over the summer, I developed and have now implemented a plan to include an additional POST Certified deputy in each of our high schools. This now means there are two full-time, fully certified SROs in each high school. more
