Why La Vergne, TN will be a destination place to live.
What does Dirk Ash, principle of La Vergne High and Senna Mosley, mayor of La Vergne have in common? Perception. Both have been working diligently to change people’s perception of the city and high school. Mayor Mosley has been working through with past decisions made by the previous administration that put the city in a financial bind.
