New Tuition Reimbursement Program

A new incentive to keep Smith County employees and attract new ones. Commissioners Monday morning unanimously passed a tuition reimbursement program for county workers. Eligible employees can take courses related to their duties and be reimbursed by the county.

"We need to be competitive in the way we set up programs and make ourselves attractive to new employees. The tuition reimbursement program is one of those. They have to have very good grades, they have to be pre approved, they have to course work that will help them do better on their jobs," said Commissioner Joann Fleming, Precinct 1, Smith County.

The program will begin in October, so that it can be built into next year's budget.
