(NASHVILLE) — State Representative Ron Travis (R-Dayton) today recognized three academic institutions in District 31 for earning Reward School status from the Tennessee Department of Education.

The status is the top distinction a school can achieve in Tennessee. Recipients include approximately 318 schools in 85 districts — 20 percent of the state’s schools — who have demonstrated improvement in overall student academic achievement as well as student growth for all students and student groups. These institutions are identified and recognized annually by the Department of Education.

Institutions honored in Bledsoe and Rhea Counties include:

  • Cecil B. Rigsby Elementary School
  • Pikeville Elementary School
  • Spring City Middle School

“I am excited that three of our institutions have received this incredible honor from our Department of Education,” said Representative Travis. “This achievement is the result of the hard work and dedication of our fine educators, staff, engaged parents, and family members who have prioritized their roles supporting the academic development of our future leaders. I want to congratulate them, as well as our students for achieving Reward School status, and I will continue to prioritize resources for these important groups in the years ahead.”
