The Cocke County School Board meeting Thursday evening chose a system-wide motto for Cocke County schools.

A four-member committee presented the board with three options, including “Mountains of Success,” “Moving Mountains,” and “Moving Mountains-Achieving Success”.

Board Chair Dr. Ken Johnson said all of the options were excellent but it was the consensus of the board and the committee that “Moving Mountains-Achieving Success” was the best choice.

“In education, we are faced with mountains of problems to try to solve,” Johnson said. “And in order to do that, we have to work together and if we work together effectively, we will indeed achieve success for the students, and that is what we are all about.”
