OAK RIDGE, Tenn. (WATE) — On Friday, Governor Bill Lee made a stop at Oak Ridge High School.

This is the second school visit in the East Tennessee area after the Governor’s visit to Morristown where he spoke to a high school leadership class.

Yesterday Gov. Lee announced a new partnership to help fight human trafficking with Tim Tebow and other related foundations.

Lee recently spoke of his want for federal investments in infrastructure.
