BEST partnerships over the years and throughout the community come in all forms and focuses. These partnerships are an outgrowth of the Business & Education Serving Together workforce development initiative of the Cleveland/Bradley Chamber of Commerce.
“The ultimate goal is to help prepare students for the labor force,” said Sherry Crye, BEST program coordinator with the Cleveland/Bradley Chamber of Commerce. “The intermediate goal is to forge affiliations between a business and a school for the benefit of both.”
The Chamber’s newest BEST partnership is a relationship between Mayfield Elementary School and Companion Funeral Home. “We are excited and honored to partner with Companion Funeral Home as part of the BEST program,” said Randall Stephens, principal of Mayfield Elementary. “We look forward to a lasting and mutually beneficial relationship that benefits our students.”
“Companion Funeral and Cremation Service is committed to furthering the strong education systems in Cleveland and Bradley County, believing this is done through healthy partnerships like these,” said Trae Cody, owner. “We are excited to work closely with Mayfield Elementary School to enhance the opportunities for learning and development of their students.”
