Kickoff with the Best 
in Franklin! 1

Hello Franklin.

I hope you have had a fun and relaxing summer vacation, and are as ready as I am to kick off another school year, with the best in Williamson County!

Although summer does not officially end until Friday, September 22, for most of us, it can feel as if it ends in August. School is back in session and busy weekday schedules resume.

This month’s Back To School edition spotlights our local Teachers Of The Year, high school football and the latest fashion trends for the school year. You’ll also not want to miss the total solar eclipse that will appear over Nashville midday on August 21. Nashville is the largest city in the nation in the path of this rare astronomical event.

I want to thank all of you who voted in July for your favorite local businesses in our Best of Franklin balloting. We are tallying the final votes now, and will present the winners in the September issue.

Finally, I want to recognize our contributors who make this publication possible every month. It is their involvement and passion for community that enables us to bring you unique stories about the residents, businesses and events that make us all proud to call the City of Franklin home.
