Tennessee Governor Bill Lee visited East Tennessee Monday for a handful of events. During his visit, he travelled to see some schools in and around Knox County.
Lee says that Tennessee schools have excelled in reopening.
“We are leading the country with how to open schools successfully,” said Lee. “At the same time, I was also involved in some virtual learning classes so parents that want that option for their family and for their kids have that option as well. I was thoroughly impressed with the schools I saw and the way we’re opening schools here in East Tennessee.”
Lee also expressed encouragement with businesses saying that businesses across the state have reopened.
