By Dian Lawhon, Communications Chair.
Ashley Teel (L in photo above) former TVCC President, relinquished that position following approval of a new TVCC Board of Officers at the recent member meeting (50th Anniversary Celebration at Hiwassee River Sept 9th). As we welcome the new board, we need to offer a huge vote of thanks to Ashley for her leadership and commitment to the club over many years as President and in many other roles. Lucky for us, she has promised to continue to support the club in the many activities and events planned for the next year and beyond. Rebecca Hendrix (R in above photo) has also served TVCC in many positions and was lead planner and implementer for the 50th Anniversary celebration. Other departing board members deserving a big round of applause are: Kristin Evans, outgoing AVP; Ali Reddington, outgoing Secretary; Mike Shillinger, outgoing Safety Chair; John Hubbard, Conservation Co-Chair; and Stephanie Whiting, outgoing webmaster. Officers are all volunteers and must be re-approved and/or replaced every year.
