Executive Jeff Huffman and Tipton County Government are recipients of the 2018 Chancellor's Award for Excellence in Philanthropy in recognition of their outstanding community leadership and generous commitment of resources and financial contributions to the Tennessee College of Applied Technology Covington.
Tipton County has a long standing partnership with the Tennessee College of Applied Technology in Covington. The county meets with the college regularly to discuss ideas and offerings that will meet the needs of the community.
In 2017, the County submitted a CDBG Workforce Development Grant in the amount of $3,260,000 on behalf of TCAT Covington for a new capital building project to construct a 25,000 square foot healthcare facility that will expand the programs offerings at TCAT Covington to include Dental Assisting, Pharmacy Technology, and Practical Nursing.
The County also committed an additional $500,000 match to the grant proposal. This will assist the institution with aligning training capabilities to meet current industry demands in Tipton, Lauderdale, Haywood, Madison and Shelby counties.
TCAT Covington is proud to have Executive Huffman and the Tipton County Government as avid supporters of technical training!
