SCORE President and CEO David Mansouri leads a conversation with BlueCross BlueShield Tennessee CEO JD Hickey and BlueSky Tennessee Institute Executive Director Bradley Leon to kick off our Friday’s Focus series.

JD and Brad provide a briefing about the new BlueSky initiative. Launched in partnership with East Tennessee State University, the Institute offers an accelerated tech degree program for Tennessee students. In just over two years, participating students earn not only a bachelor of science in computing from ETSU but also earn a tangible job offer from BlueCross.
