Rutherford Reconnect is the local boots on the ground initiative to support the goal of Drive to 55. Rutherford County actually has to achieve a higher percentage of adults obtaining higher education credentials. Rutherford County’s goal is 60.7%. To reach this goal, a team of employers has joined with local post-secondary partners, the Tennessee Higher Education Commission and the Nashville Career Advancement Center (Murfreesboro location) to help support current employees returning to school.
