A group of 23 association members went to the campus of UT Martin, Somerville, for the August meeting of the Hickory Withe Community Association.
The meeting began with a prayer by Jim Holley and the pledge led by Joe Moore.
Following the meal, Kara Tapp, the director of the campus, spoke to the group about the school and its programs and course offerings. Mrs. Tapp and Molly McCarley led a tour of the beautiful, state of the art facility.
The Somerville campus of UT Martin opened in 2017 and its enrollment is consistently growing. Most of the students attending are from a 60 mile radius and most are able to receive scholarships or grants. The graduates of the school will receive the same UT diploma that is given out in the other UT system campuses.
There are also classes that can be audited by senior citizens at a very modest cost.
The meeting adjourned after the presentation and tour.

Above are the photos from our February meeting. Somerville Banjo crafter, Tommy George, shared with us his local, handmade art of custom crafting banjos. He and his business partner, Christian Stanfield, believe that banjos are extremely important to Tennessee’s musical heritage. Their art was featured in this fall’s edition of Tennessee Home and Farm magazine. We all enjoyed the performance.
