Yesterday’s blog topic was about students from Cane Ridge High School’s Construction Career Academy visiting the new home construction site of Rivendell Woods of Cane Ridge. Yesterday, the students got to see first-hand examples of the trades they have been studying. ( Photos are posted on yesterday’s blog thing. Home Center Network will be airing excerpts on Comcast Channel 49 at 9:00 am and 9:00 pm daily.)
Ole South has had involvement with Cane Ridge since its opening and have watched the Career Academy concept evolve into a successful program format. And it is getting better each and every day. With guidance from educators such as Harold Cunningham and Lance Lott, even better things are on the horizon for Cane Ridge.
Which leads me to another subject … involvement in our local schools. There are many wonderful things happening in schools all across Middle Tennessee. We need to constantly find out what these things are and spread the good news to all that will listen! There may be one disfunctional student that carries a knife to school, but there are thousands more carrying books, notebooks, and pencils.
Everyone can help in some way, even if it is just talking positive. Our quality of life is directly impacted by the quality of our schools, so we each really do have skin in the game! The better our local schools perform, the better our local economy performs.
Parents want to raise their families where there is a great quality of life. Employers want to locate their businesses where they can attract great employees. The benefits of quality education go on and on and can never be underestimated.
About the quality of education in Metropoltan Nashville, did you know that US News & World Reports publishes a list of the “Best 100 High Schools in America?” Guess what? There are only TWO Tennessee High Schools on this list. BOTH of them are Metropolitan Nashville Public Schools! Tell people about that!
There are great things going on with education in Nashville. Let’s all get more involved whenever we can and see if we can add even more area schools to that list next year.
Then watch the value of your new Ole South home in Nashville, Smyrna, Murfreesboro and Spring Hill climb even more.
Have a great day!
