You Served Me

Dec 30, 2021

You Visited Me

When Lance Mosher was a child, he and his family moved to West Tennessee – where they had no friends or family – “on a whim,” he said. His mother and grandmother had taught him how to pray when he was a child; however, “going to church was not on our radar,” he said. As a teenager, he sought meaning in many things.

 

You Helped Me

An unforgettable day for residents of five Middle Tennessee counties – Approximately 17” of rain fell on McEwen, Tennessee, in a few hours, setting a new record for daily rainfall in the state. Less, but still substantial, rain fell in Humphreys County. McEwen sits just east and upstream from Waverly, Tennessee. Headwaters of Trace Creek originate in eastern parts of the county, and the water drains westward through Waverly.

A class assignment is sometimes, well, just a class assignment. But, for Casey Jackson, a senior from Knoxville, Tennessee, an assignment in Spring 2020 caused her to change her major and focus more clearly on helping those in need. Jackson was enrolled in Service and Philanthropy, an honors class taught by Jay Satterfield.

David Smith: 50 Years of Vision and Leadership

Dec 30, 2021

Although Dave Smith may claim that he was “not the best student to ever make it through Freed-Hardeman,” his business acumen and the success of his company MTM Recognition, belie that claim. He began the company as Midwest Trophy Manufacturing in 1971 as a one-man show. The first years saw a gross revenue of under $50,000, which in those days was on par with the competition. These days MTM has grown to upwards of $90 million in revenue. Not bad for an Alabama farm boy who went to college on basketball scholarships.
