One hundred years from now it will not matter what kind of car I drove, what kind of house I lived in, how much money I had in my bank account, nor what my clothes looked like. But the world may be a little better because I was important in the life of a child.

Summitt joins SafeHarbor's cause

  • Original Publication Date: September 25, 2005
     Area residents have been hard at work laying the groundwork for the SafeHarbor Child Advocacy Center. And this week, their hard work as recognized when Lady Vols basketball coach Pat Summitt has agreed to serve as spokeswoman.
     The child advocacy center would assist children who are victims of suspected sexual or physical abuse and severe neglect. It would serve children in Sevier, Jefferson, Cocke and Grainger counties.
     Summitt has volunteered to record public service announcements encouraging support of the center. She will also serve as keynote speaker at a fund-raising event to be held in the spring, Koester said.
     With Summitt's help, the center may get the help it needs to get up and running. Thanks coach.
