On Tuesday morning, he started at Tyner Academy.

He visited their three Future Ready Institutes.

The program prepares students for post-secondary education and careers in fields like teaching, technology and health sciences.

Brogan says he enjoys seeing first hand the success of the Future Ready Institutes.

“It not only does my heart good. It continues to help me take these ideas to other schools, that these schools are looking for something new and innovative to work with their students about,” Brogan said.

After Tyner, Brogan visited the Ivy Academy in Soddy-Daisy.
