RECOGNIZING THE POWER OF GIVING: BOOKER T. SCRUGGS

RECOGNIZING THE POWER OF GIVING:  BOOKER T. SCRUGGS

Some know him as a professor, a community leader, a tennis player,a philanthropist, and a television host. He is known, in the local arts and culture realm, as a first-class professional musician and showman who continues to inspire and educate our local community through the power of music.

Mr. Scruggs embodies the spirit of giving back. Throughout the years, he has donated thousands of dollars to youth programs and scholarships through the music sales of his CDs. He often does free performances to assist local nonprofit organizations to fundraise.

Mr. Scruggs continues to play a positive, creative role in bridging divides, unifying people and informing our community about the importance of the arts and its role in our community.

Mr. Scruggs is the namesake of our Booker T. Scruggs Community Ambassador Award.

The Ambassador Award recognizes the often-unrecognized people who transform our communities and enrich the lives of others through the power of the Arts.

We are pleased to honor local professional musician and educator Yattie Westfield for his amazing work and dedication to providing music instruction for at risk youth and children through his mentoring program, Project Chance. This unique program is part of a comprehensive non profit social service agency in Bradley County, TN called Solomon Family Solutions.

The goal of Project Chance is to provide a positive and safe environment for at risk youth and children to learn music at no cost.The students of Project Chance will have the opportunity to learn a variety of skills and instruction of their choice. Studies include guitar, bass, drums, piano, violin, vocals, studio recording, and writing. 

We are giving Yattie’s program a $500.00 donation in honor of the Booker T. Scruggs Community Ambassador Award.
