Tennessee Chapter Recognized as an Evergreen All-Star
In 1993, the Evergreen Awards Program was started as a way to recognize outstanding chapter efforts and innovation. As a way to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the program, the Chapters Subcommittee and staff looked for a way to recognize chapters who have demonstrated a long-term engagement with the program. The criteria included that a chapter must have submitted at least 5 nominations, had at least 2 winners, and had a nominated program running for at least 3 years. The Tennessee Chapter has contributed to the growth of all chapters through their commitment to sharing successful best practices through the Evergreen program and has been recognized as an Evergreen All-Star for their achievements.
Grand Rounds in Literature
The Tennesee Reading Retreats have been conducted for over 20 years and generated original literary works or commentaries and reviews of the works of others. Take a few moments to read through the online journal of articles, reviews and original works.
