Truman Day Celebration at The Foundry August 12th!
Part of President Obama’s ‘Winning the Future’ campaign states that, “…To win the future, we have to out-innovate, out-educate and out-build the rest of the world, tapping the creativity and imagination of our people.” Thus, the theme of this year’s Truman Day is, ‘Salute to Public Education!’
Without solid public education, which seems to be under attack in parts of the U.S., winning the future will be impossible! So, we are highlighting accomplishments of those here in East Tennessee by inviting two Knox County teachers and sponsors of the Technology Student Association, Leigh Davis and Wanda Walker, as well as some of the students that represent East Tennessee as the top technology students in the nation! …Their achievements speak volumes to all who fret about the quality of our public educators in Tennessee. To demonstrate KCDP’s efforts to help educate our young people, we will announce our Maxine Clark Memorial Scholarship Award.
Other special Truman Day guests include our Keynote Speaker, Senator Roy Herron, Chairman of the Tennessee Democratic Party, Chip Forrester and Knoxville mayoral candidates, Mark Padgett and Madeline Rogero! Additionally, there will be silent auction items and live music with the Kelle Jolly Band.
A $50 individual’s ticket grants access to the buffet dinner and the rest of the evening festivities. Buy soon because tickets are selling quickly and you won’t want to miss! Guests also have the option of purchasing tables for $500. Several tables have been reserved already, but there are more! Priority table location is given to those who buy sooner than later, so don’t wait to get your name out there and have a great table spot waiting for you and your guests!
