NASHVILLE, TN - Complete Tennessee Executive Director Dr. Kenyatta Lovett released the following statement following Governor Haslam’s State of the State address:

“Under Governor Haslam’s leadership, we’ve broken barriers, challenged the status quo, and demanded better for all Tennesseans – regardless of background or circumstance. As a result, our state has earned national recognition for education reform and gained an enviable reputation as an economic powerhouse.
 
“Governor Haslam has consistently set a high bar for Tennesseans, and tonight was no exception. His State of the State address outlined a path that can help Tennessee lead for years to come – especially in postsecondary attainment and education innovation. Complete Tennessee applauds the new Complete to Compete initiative, which reaffirms the state’s longstanding commitment to improving college affordability and access.
