Jefferson Middle earns Carson-Newman award

Carson-Newman University honored community service and academic excellence during the seventh annual Twin Pillars Community Celebration in early April.

Jefferson Elementary School’s S.T.E.A.M. Program received the “Community Partner of the Year Award” for going above and beyond in their work with the community and with participating C-N students.

The program’s acronym comes from what it teaches: science, technology, engineering, art, agriculture and mathematics.

Held at the Mossy Creek Station, the event included all participants of programs in the University’s Bonner Center for Service Learning and Civic Engagement, the Honors Program, and the Community Service and Service Learning Committee as well as community partners.

Bonner Center students and staff nominated the after-school program for the award.
