REdI: Robertson County Education Initiative


The Robertson County Chamber of Commerce supports REdI and believes it is imperative to promote broad-based community support for and investment in public education to continue to improve the economic development climate of Robertson County.  When business and industry see our school system as a draw, more opportunities for growth and employment at all levels will come to our community.  REdI operates under the direction of a volunteer advisory board and a paid director, Kathy Gunn. The chamber provides in-kind office space, supplies, equipment and administrative support for REdI.
