During Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam’s fourth annual State of the State address to the General Assembly on Feb. 3, he unveiled his visionary “Tennessee Promise” proposal to offer free community and technology college education to graduating high school seniors.“Through the Tennessee Promise, we are fighting the rising cost of higher education, and we are raising our expectations as a state,” said Haslam. “We are committed to making a clear statement to families that education beyond high school is a priority in the state of Tennessee.”
