FOX 17’s Town Hall Meeting to be held in TSAC

by Brooklyn Dance

FOX17 is holding a town hall meeting at 6 p.m. tonight in Trevecca’s Tarter Student Activity Center.

The meeting will discuss Nashville’s future in relation to the city’s rapid growth and worsening traffic, moderated by FOX 17’s Scott Couch and ‘Traffic Jam’ Sam.

Officials from Nashville’s Metropolitan Transit Authority, (MTA) Regional Transportation Authority (RTA), Tennessee Department of Transportation, (TDOT) the Metro Nashville Transportation director and Metro Planing Organization (MPO) will discuss ideas to alleviate the traffic congestion.

Trevecca has been hosting town hall meetings for two years now.

Matt Toy, director of marketing and communications, said that FOX originally reached out to Trevecca, looking for a good venue close to Nashville.

“FOX really loves TSAC,” Toy said,  “It’s a room you can do a lot with.  It’s easy to get to, [it has] easy parking, they love the set up.”

Toy said Trevecca appreciates hosting the town hall meetings because it is great exposure for the school, and it really gets people on campus.

Those words sound familiar? You might have heard the theme song from the TV show “Reba” if you were anywhere near the Boone Convocation Center Saturday afternoon.

More than 200 women from the Nashville Rescue Mission dressed in their Sunday best, loaded a few coach buses, and made their way to the Boone building for a luncheon fundraiser, hosted by the Rescue Mission. They were joined by an additional large group of women who came to the event in support of the nonprofit. Continue reading Reba makes an appearance at Trevecca

Jan Greathouse, Director of University Communication and her staff were told at noon Feb. 11 to start packing and in four days they were surrounded by boxes, empty filing cabinets, and cleared bookshelves ready for the movers.

The Office of External Relations and Marketing is camping out on the main floor of the Adams Administration Building until Apr. 1 when university administrators make decisions about where the department will be located until their move to a permanent location.

The offices made an emergency move on Feb. 16 after engineering inspectors deemed the third floor, where they were, structurally unstable.
