MSHA and WJHL were honored for their invaluable contributions to CareerQuest. Held in March, CareerQuest was attended by more than 5,000 students and was designed to introduce students to various sectors of the workforce. Appalachian Community Federal Credit Union was honored for its partnership with the Development District in hosting a variety of regional meetings as well as providing financial counseling to elderly clients who are served by First Tennessee Development District.
The First Tennessee Development District is one of nine regional organizations in the state carrying out general and comprehensive planning and development activities for local governments. This voluntary association of governments is committed to improving the quality of life in Northeast Tennessee.
