Learn more about Mayor Glenn Jacobs
Mayor Glenn Jacobs took office in September 2018. Since that time, he has worked diligently to tell the rest of the world what he already knows: that Knox County and East Tennessee are the best places to live, work, and raise a family. By focusing on jobs, education, and recreation, Mayor Jacobs’ goal is to help make the best even better.
Some of his key projects have been:
- Read City USA, a collaborative initiative to ensure that all children learn to read early and well, regardless of socioeconomic background.
- Establishing the Knox County Building Trades Career Academy that will serve both adults who are continuing education in HVAC, masonry, electrical, and carpentry fields and Knox County high school students who don’t currently have access to CTE classes.
- Launching the Knox County Mayor’s TCAT Scholarship that supports the children of Knox County employees taking classes at Tennessee College of Applied Technology Knoxville.
- Coordinating the cleanup of the Beaver Creek Water Trail, a first-of-its-kind 44-mile water trail that connects five Knox County communities.
Mayor Jacobs hopes to ensure that Knox County and the rest of East TN remain committed to creating opportunities for everyone to thrive in an engaged and vibrant community.
