Rutherford County Schools will offer two options this summer for current high school students to address credit loss. Both programs are designed to provide students with the opportunity to remain on track for graduation.
Upwards of 30 students assisted with the endeavor, planting several varieties of vegetables, fruits, and legumes. Dignitaries including Rutherford County Mayor Bill Ketron, Director of Schools Bill Spurlock, and Circuit Court Clerk Melissa Harrell also rolled up their sleeves and pitched in. A few friendly competitions were known as the '2021 Garden Games' were a part of Friday’s activities. This included a row race, speed seed sowing contest and tomato plant relay.
Town personnel selected the top entry in each category and an overall winner. Winning entries were recognized at the May Town Council meeting and will serve as the centerpiece of the social media aspect for the Town’s Love Where You Live beautification initiative.
