Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam wants to help veterans seeking a higher education.

He has formed a task force to evaluate how to best serve those seeking a certificate or degree beyond high school.

The task force will try to raise the number of Tennesseans with a certificate or degree beyond high school from 32% to 55% by the year 2025.

Members of the panel will speak to higher education leaders, veterans, advocacy groups and others and present recommendations to the governor in June 2014.
