The Jackson Regional Partnership (JRP) recognized this problem and took steps to address the needs of the West Tennessee region.  Around 80 representatives from manufacturing, education, economic development and government came together on Thursday, August 30 and Friday,  August 31 at the Jackson-Madison County General Hospital for the “From Cradle to Career: A Regional Collaboration for Workforce Development Strategies” session.
