MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Tennessee Governor Bill Lee will be in Memphis on Tuesday and is expected to make a big announcement.

The governor will start his morning in Downtown Memphis at an agriculture conference at Peabody Hotel.

Governor Lee, a farmer himself, will talk about how farmers can play a larger role in improving the health of Americans. He'll also participate in a panel discussion.

Later on Tuesday, he'll host a press conference to announce a new college, career and technical education program. It's a new partnership with the National Home Builders Association.
