Wilson County Mayor Randall Hutto and Lebanon Mayor Philip Craighead will play host to community leaders at a discussion on improving the region’s postsecondary education attainment rates, with a specific focus on existing and future efforts in Wilson County.
The meeting will be Monday from 7:30-9 a.m. at the Lebanon-Wilson County Chamber of Commerce office at 149 Public Square.
The meeting will be a follow-up to the 2013 Nashville Region’s Vital Signs report, an initiative of the Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce and the Nashville Area Metropolitan Planning Organization.
The report, released annually, tracks key issues that impact the region’s economic well being. One of the key findings from the 2013 report is the need to increase the number of adults with postsecondary degrees across Middle Tennessee. This meeting will focus on highlighting current initiatives that have led to success in Wilson County, as well as identifying strategies to further improve attainment rates in the county and the region.
