Retired University of Tennessee Extension Agent, Kathy Finley was recognized and honored at the February 8, 2021 Robertson County Schools monthly board meeting as a “Friend of Education,” to Robertson County.


Finley’s temporary role with the UT Extension Office in assisting 4-H finished as a 31-year career, during which time she influenced countless Robertson County students.


In awarding the honor to Finley, RCS Director Dr. Chris Causey noted her commitment and zeal.


“It just seemed for the longest time, that everywhere you turned, there was Kathy Finley and she was doing programs that benefitted so many of our schools,” he said. 


Noting the 4-H motto, “to make the best better,” Causey stated, “I think you definitely have done that.” 


Prior to her career with 4-H, Finley taught school with RCS during the 1974-75, and 1975-76 school years at both Cedar Hill Elementary and Jo Byrns.
