The Greater Nashville Regional Council (GNRC) has recognized the Williamson County partnership that led to a successful February 2018 referendum for funding to facilitate school construction/renovation projects.
The Marshall S. Stuart Memorial Award for Intergovernmental Cooperation was presented to the Williamson County Government, Williamson County Association of REALTORS® (WCAR), Williamson, Inc., plus the municipal governments of Brentwood, Fairview, Franklin, Nolensville, Spring Hill, and Thompson’s Station.
According to Williamson, Inc. CEO Matt Largen, the award represents the “hard work of a broad coalition of community leaders who stepped up to create the first step to fully funding our number-one economic asset, our school systems.

Their work led to the overwhelming community support of this key initiative.”
