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.

Basketball coaches set win records

By Collin Welker

Both of Trevecca’s basketball coaches have made school history this year.

Sam Harris, the men’s basketball coach, has now won 326 games as Trevecca coach. Gary Van Atta, the women’s basketball coach, passed the 600 win mark in January and now has 190 wins at Trevecca under his belt.

“There is not a win that really pops in my head. We have beaten ranked opponents before,” said Harris.

Chris Elliot, junior shooting guard on the men’s team, said playing for Harris means being pushed to be the best on and off the court.

“He’s a good guy, leads by Christ, and pushes us to be better athletes on the court and better people off the court,” said Elliot. “It is really cool knowing you are a part of history when you leave here.” Continue reading Basketball coaches set win records
