Community Involvement

Our vision is to be the premier General Contractor in the Middle Tennessee area, built on faith in God, commitment to our customers, an engaged group of employees, and responsible community stewardship.
The Grade A vision has always included an emphasis on responsible community stewardship. Our business began in Wilson County, and we continue to reinvest in the local communities where we live, worship, raise our families, and do business.

Here are a few examples of the community partnerships we are engaged in:

Beautification


Mt. Juliet-Wilson County Public Library

  • Grade A Sponsored a “Heavy Equipment Day” to give children in our community the opportunity to get close to the “Big diggers” they admire.

Fishing Tournament (Men of Valor)

  • In addition to employment opportunities, Grade A is hosting the 1st Annual Grade A Fishing Tournament to raise money for our partners at Men of Valor.
  • Men of Valor is a Nashville-based Prison Ministry and Mentoring program committed to helping participants become leaders and genuine difference-makers in their families and community rather than takers.

Men of Valor’s Aftercare and Re-Entry program allows participants who are released into the discipleship academy an opportunity to overcome these obstacles. Upon release, the participants are picked up at the prison door by one of our staff or volunteers. Men of Valor welcomes them into a home and provides for their basic needs: clothing, groceries, transportation, assistance securing identification, and part-time employment during their first six months. The one-year program aims to give these men the support, skills, and accountability they need to live independently and succeed in the community. Men who complete Men of Valor’s year-long Aftercare and Re-entry program have a recidivism rate below 15%. Grade A works closely with the Men of Valor to provide employment and advancement opportunities. Learn more at https://men-of-valor.org/.
