Rural Rotations

Rural Tennessee. The words conjure up rolling hills, mountain streams and country music. Fireflies, high school football and a 4th of July parade.

Rural Tennessee is all that - but it is so much more.

The people of rural Tennessee are farmers, craftsmen, educators and scientists.  They work for a living, raise their families and watch This is Us. Even though they are of diverse ethnicities and points of view, the people of rural Tennessee all have one thing in common. They all need you.
