The Rutherford County Schools Education Foundation (RCSEF) has announced the establishment of the Rutherford County Schools Hall-of-Fame.

“Rutherford County Schools has an esteemed history reaching more than 130 years in the past. The RCSEF Directors felt it was well past time to enshrine those educators, administrators, and supporters of Rutherford County Schools

who set, and built upon, the foundation of the community of schools we have today," Kevin Bradley, Executive Director of the RCSEF, said in a press release. “Our desire is that through the establishment of this Hall-of-Fame, the Rutherford County community will have an opportunity to reflect on the heritage of Rutherford County Schools and their individual educational icons.”

RCSEF is now seeking nominations for the inaugural class of members now. The Hall-of-Fame Committee will select no less than five and no more than 10 of the nominees for induction for the 2013 class.

"We are just a support organization for Rutherford County Schools. We raise funds to help with the schools and different things. The RCSEF Directors really want to get involved in the community and do some events. This Hall-of-Fame is the first thing they have decided to do," Bradley said.

Nominations are reserved for members of the foundation.

"I'm excited that the board of directors decided to initiate this. It has been a long time coming. We will finally inshrine some of those people who were all stars of Rutherford County Schools education," Bradley said.
