 Weakley Badge
 
Weakley County recently earned national recognition as an ACT® Certified Work Ready Community (CWRC) in Tennessee, becoming one of only 14 counties in the state to achieve this milestone, and the final county in LWDA 12 to be certified. Certification as a Work Ready Community means the county has job candidates with proven work ready skills as evidenced by the National Career Readiness Certificate (NCRC). It also shows that local employers recognize the need for employees with national certifications that fulfill their hiring needs. According to Margaret Prater, Executive Director for the Northwest TN Workforce Board, Weakley County has received 27 employer endorsements and 622 job seekers have earned the NCRC as part of the Work Ready Community project. “We are extremely proud of Weakley County leadership for seeing the value in the NCRC for their employers and citizens” Prater said.
