Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves congratulated the graduates, touched on education in the state and described the ingredients that make an outstanding leader at Thursday’s Leadership Lauderdale 2016 graduation ceremony at the Riley Center….
…To succeed as a whole, Reeves said the state must improve its educational system.
“If we are going to see long-term economic growth in Mississippi, e must improve our educational attainment level of our citizens,” Reeves said. We’ve spent $400 million in public education than five years ago. We must also be willing to reform our educational system. I believe that every citizen – no matter their zip code or what mom and dad do for a living – deserves an opportunity for success.”
