Former Murfreesboro Mayor Tommy Bragg and wife, Jeanne, join an elite group of public servants to be honored by The City Schools Foundation for their support of public education at the 8th Annual Excellence in Education Celebration on Feb 6, 2015.

Former honorees include Dr. Sidney and Elizabeth McPhee, Dr. Susan Andrews, John Hood, Rhea Seddon and "Hoot" Gibson, Gloria and Ted LaRoche, Joyce Taylor and former U.S. Representative Bart Gordon.

This year's event is appropriately themed "Something to BRAGG About." Reservations for the Celebration are now available including individual tickets at $250 and sponsorships beginning at $1,500. A pre-party for sponsors will be held at the home of Dr. Sidney and Elizabeth McPhee.

The 2015 Celebration promises to be an enjoyable event with a dueling roast presented by the brothers of the honorees.

The event will spotlight Mitchell-Neilson School and it's recent adoption of the innovative Leader in Me philosophy. The Braggs have a personal attachment to Mitchell-Neilson, serving as past chairs in the Mitchell-Neilson PTO.

Hosting organization, The City Schools Foundation, is a group of civic and business leaders banding together to benefit Murfreesboro City Schools' pre-Kindergarten through sixth grade students.

The gala, scheduled for Friday, February 6, will be held at Stones River Country Club. Chairs for the event are Doug and Susan Young.
