Stories and people behind Sumner County names Sumner The county was named for Jethro Sumner, a Revolutionary War general and hero. He was born in 1733 and died in 1807 in Warren County, N.C. Gallatin The city was named for Albert Gallatin, who served for 12 years as secretary of the treasury under U.S. presidents Thomas Jefferson and James Madison. He also had several diplomatic posts and was one of the most respected government leaders of his time. Shackle Island The traditional story goes that illegal whiskey was available in a small shack on an island in the middle of a local creek. People would say, “Let’s go to the shack on the island for a drink.” Eventually, the name became simply Shackle Island, and, in 1900, the post office recognized it as the

name of the community. Millersville A man named Miller was a revenue officer who often stopped at the general store for cheese and crackers on his way to hunt for illegal stills in the mountains. He did not return from one of his trips, and his body was eventually found in an old well. After some time, his friends at the country store honored his memory by naming the village after him. Station Camp Creek The creek was named for a camp that longhunters (men who left home for extended periods and traveled long distances to hunt game) established in 1771. The camp was on Cages Bend Road near the creek and the present U.S. 31E. Free Hill Road After the Civil War, many freed

slaves came to the area and settled on a high hill northwest of Hendersonville. Thus, the hill and road became known as “Free Hill.” Pilot Knob Pilot Knob is the highest hill in the area that can be seen from the Cumberland River. Pilots on river craft would identify their locations from the hill, which stood out above the trees. Frog Town A former settlement on Sanders Ferry Road on Drake’s Creek was named for the chorus of frogs heard in the evening from early spring until late summer. Cairo Cairo was a sparsely settled frontier east of Gallatin along the banks of the Cumberland River. It was named Cairo around 1800 by Gen. James Winchester (of histor-

ic Cragfont) who, with two other men, acquired 150 acres in the midst of a frontier controlled by Creek Indians. Stinking Creek Located between Westmoreland and Portland, this community got its name from the sulfur springs in the area that created an unpleasant odor. Scattersville The first people credited for starting the community in 1880 settled a distance from each other for unknown reasons. A traveler, George German, came through the area and saw how scattered about the residents were and suggested they call it Scattersville. Rogana Named for pioneer Hugh Rogan, who built a small stone house in the community in 1800.

City of Gallatin

The State Route 109 Bridge connects Sumner and Wilson counties. FILE


hen Tennessee became a state in 1796, Sumner County was already a decade old, yet it still did not have a designated county seat. It took three failed attempts by the General Assembly to establish the town before a group of five commissioners successfully purchased 42.5 acres on land that once was a Native American hunting ground. The first lots were sold in 1802, marking the beginning of Gallatin. The town was named for Albert Gallatin, a Swiss immigrant who, as a U.S. Congressman in Pennsylvania, took an active part in winning admission to the Union for Tennessee. Gallatin served as secretary of the Treasury under former presidents Thomas Jefferson and James Madison, but he never visited the town bearing his name. Gallatin incorporated as a city in 1815.

endersonville residents have known all along what a few national publications have picked up on in recent years: Hendersonville is an affordable and desirable place to raise a family. In July 2009, Family Circle magazine named Hendersonville one of the top 10 places to raise a family, and in 2012 Money magazine’s America’s 100 Best Small Cities ranked the city the 86th best place to live in America. The magazine cited Hendersonville as the heartland of country music, home at one time or another to stars such as Taylor Swift, Conway Twitty and Johnny Cash. The survey also cited the city’s top-notch schools, rapid growth, shopping, restaurants and plentiful supply of white-collar jobs as a reason for its selection. Most recently, consumer advocacy website NerdWallet ranked the city eighth in Tennessee for best towns for young families. Governed by a 13-member board of mayor and aldermen, Hendersonville was incorporated in July 1969 and officially began operations Aug. 1, 1969.

This water tower in White House proudly displays the city’s joint vision.


ncorporated in 1971, White House is split between Sumner and Robertson counties along Highway 31 about 20 miles north of Nashville. The story of how White House got its name dates back to 1838-58, when the Carter, Thomas and Hough Stage Coach Co. traveled the L&N Turnpike. One of the stops for food and lodging and to change out horses was a two-story house built around 1829 by Richard S. Wilks. It was painted white, which was particularly rare during this time, especially in the underdeveloped land between Louisville and Nashville. Drivers and others began to refer to this stop and the area as “White House.”

ocated on the Highland Rim in northeastern Sumner County, Westmoreland is a city with a largely undocumented but surprisingly rich history. Many early settlers came here between 1805 and 1820 as tourists on the L&N Railroad. Area sulphur waters with supposed medicinal value found here made it a popular spot until the mid-1920s. In 1901, Westmoreland became an incorporated town. The town lost its corporate status in the early 1930s because of the Great Depression, but it was re-incorporated in 1951.

City of Millersville


hartered in 1981, the city operates under the city manager/commission form of government. In August 2011, Millersville residents won the Governor’s Environmental Stewardship Award for Aquatic Resource for Sumner County for the significant cleanup of Slaters and Mansker creeks, where neighbors removed thousands of pounds of trash from the streams’ already-eroded waters. According to CityofMillers, it is not uncommon to see wild turkeys in the backyard of residences and deer by the creek.

emergency preparedness

New emergency complex opens The new Sumner County Emergency Services Building, which houses some of the county's key first response agencies at one location, was officially opened May 20, 2013. The county's Emergency Management Agency, Emergency Medical Services and E911 office are now operating in the same facility at 255 Airport Road in Gallatin. The 60,000-square-foot property sits on more than nine acres and was previously used as the corporate office of Sumner Regional Health Systems before its 2010 bankruptcy and sale. The building is half office space and half warehouse space. Sumner Regional was a county-created entity that had been converted into a nonprofit organization before it was sold to the forprofit corporation LifePoint Hospitals three years ago. To buy the Airport Road land and structure, county leaders were able to negotiate a selling price of $3 mil-

lion with property owner Jim Hodges. “This is a perfect building and we bought this at a bargain,’’ County Executive Anthony Holt said. “This should meet the needs of the county for the next 30 years.’’ EMA Director Ken Weidner said the new building, complete with a conference room and a training room, was a much-needed step up for each of the county agencies and would likely improve operations. “The bay area is amazing.

Now, we can keep all of our equipment inside. Being in the same building with EMS and E911 are definite advantages,’’ Weidner said. “Our relationships have always been good, but this just gives us a leg up.’’ It’s also a welcome move for Keith Douglas, director of the county EMS department, which had been operating in a 65-year-old dilapidated building with numerous heating and air problems. “This is a relief for us, and it also helps with em-

ployee morale, efficiency and coordination,’’ he said. Buddy Shaeffer, director of Sumner County E911, looks forward to the centralized dispatch system. “All the calls will come into one place, and we won't have to worry about getting knocked out or have to go somewhere else,’’ he said. A $2 million Tennessee Disaster Recovery Grant received in 2012 will cover the cost for a 10,000-squarefoot facility to be located next to the new building. Engineering studies have already started, Holt said. Sumner was one of 18 Tennessee counties eligible for the grant after being declared a disaster area for both the 2008 tornadoes and the 2010 floods. Once complete, the hardened facility will house a centralized dispatch center and provide a secure location for both emergency equipment and those who operate it. “We can’t stop disasters, but we can be prepared,’’ Holt said.

Emergency Agencies SCEMA Sumner County Emergency Management Agency responds to and manages disasters in Sumner County. Through the guidance and leadership of Director Ken Weidner, the agency manages the emergency operations center when activated due to a disaster or emergency. The Emergency Operations Center is the heart of large-scale emergencies and is staffed with key personnel from involved communities. The personnel work together under the

emergency preparedness

Protect your family in severe weather When it comes to severe weather, one of the most important things in being prepared is to know about a possible severe weather event before it happens. While the Tennessee Emergency Management Agency (TEMA) is on the lookout for severe weather events throughout the year, spokesman Dean Flener said the agency begins talking about severe weather preparedness in February. “You can’t wait until the flood is in your yard to get ready for it,” Flener said. The Federal Emergency Management Agency suggests that each household have a basic emergency supply kit in their home in case of severe weather. One important item to have in order to be ready for an emergency is a batterypowered National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) weather radio in case power goes out and you don’t have radio or television, Flener said. “When you think about being prepared, the most important thing is to be able to have access to information,” he said. In addition to having extra water and food supplies, Flener also suggests making sure you have enough medication to last three to five days as well as extra cash or traveler’s checks in case local ATMs are down. “One of the things we also advise families to do is sit down and talk with each other about what you need to do in case of severe weather,” he said. “Talk about where you would go in your house if something were to happen and you needed to take shelter.” Severe weather events

also can occur when a family is separated or not at home. Flener suggests having a designated family friend or someone out of town that everyone can check in with. It is good to agree on a location to meet in case you get separated during a disaster.

Additional measures For additional protection in case of a tornado or severe weather, a storm shelter or safe room provides additional security. Cindy Anderson, co-owner of Providence Safe Rooms, said she has seen heightened interest in safe rooms in the past two-and-ahalf years that the Old Hickory business has been open. The solid steel enclosure is mounted to concrete and can withstand an EF-5 tornado. While the safe room can be placed anywhere in a house under construction, existing homes typically have one put in the garage. “Many people are still not aware that there is another option outside of going into a hole in the floor or going out

into the weather to escape a weather event,’’ she said. “Therefore, you’re more likely to use it instead of waiting until the last minute.’’ The most commonly sold safe room is 4 feet by 6 feet, which can hold four to six people, and 4 feet by 8 feet, which can hold six to eight people. Anderson said the safe room is wheelchair and walker accessible. Homeowners also should inspect trees on their property. When tornadoes ripped through Sumner County on Jan. 30, Jeff Herder, owner of Herder Tree Service, said he got his first call at 3:30 a.m. and the phone rang all day. The best thing a homeowner can do with trees, Herder said, is to have them pruned instead of topped, which is not healthy for the tree. “A tree is not dangerous because of the height; it’s dangerous because it gets so full of foliage and everything that it can catch wind,” he said. While having a tree pruned does not prevent it

REGISTER YOUR STORM SHELTER Sumner County Severe Weather Shelter Registration Program is a free and voluntary program that allows residents who own a personal severe weather shelter in Sumner County to register their shelter with the Sumner County Emergency Management Agency. This information will only be provided to rescue personnel if your property is involved in a natural disaster or rescue operation. EMA personnel will visit your residence to obtain or verify GPS coordinates and other site verifications. To register your severe weather shelter, call 4527584 or register online at Source:

Develop a family disaster plan Consult with your local emergency management office and learn about the hazards that might strike your area and how your community is prepared to respond to emergencies. Develop a family disaster plan that addresses the following: » Draw a floor map of your home with two escape routes from each room and post copies at several locations; define a meeting place outside. » Plan how family members will contact one another if separated: phones, radios, information cards. » Make sure you know how to properly shut off utilities such as natural gas, water and electricity. » Consider purchasing the appropriate (tornado/ flood/earthquake) insurance to reduce losses. » Make a record, take interior photo or a video of your belongings for insurance purposes. » Store important documentation in a safety deposit box outside home. » Consider saving money in a separate account for use during crisis. » Check with emergency services how to assist family members with special needs. » Make sure family members know how to administer first aid, CPR and use a fire extinguisher. » Prepare supplies, carriers and leashes to quickly evacuate pets. » Assemble disaster supply kit: prepare food, water, clothing and other supplies for at least three days. » Know where the closest shelter is and the safest way to reach it; avoid vehicles. » Get constant weather

Sumner Regional expands services Sumner Regional Medical Center (SRMC) has been providing health care to Sumner County and the surrounding areas for more than 50 years. Since opening in 1959 as Sumner County Memorial Hospital, SRMC has grown from a facility with just 50 employees and seven physicians to a comprehensive health care leader in the community with more than 1,000 employees and more than 250 physicians. SRMC is part of a growing health system that includes hospitals in two other Middle Tennessee communities – Hartsville and Carthage. Since 2010, SRMC has served as the flagship hospital of HighPoint Health System, which is a part of LifePoint Hospitals. Today, SRMC operates as a 155-bed healthcare facility and provides quality care in numerous areas under the direction of HighPoint Health System CEO Susan Peach, including cancer treatment, cardiac care, same-day surgery, orthopaedics, home care, hospice services, pediatric care, behavioral health, women’s health and rehabilitation services. The facility celebrated the opening of a new patient tower on its campus in 2008, featuring 70 all-new private patient wellness rooms, new surgery suites, an all-new emergency department, new PACU, new labor and delivery suites and a new nursery. Sumner Regional Medical Center is home to a dedicated and experienced group of physicians making up the hospital’s diverse medical staff. SRMC’s medical staff is made up of physicians

In 2012, the hospital was voted “Best Place to Have a Baby” by the readers of Sumner Parent magazine and received accreditation from the American College of Radiology for its diagnostic imaging services at the main hospital campus. Imaging for Women at Sumner Station achieved Breast Center of Excellence status from the American College of Radiology and the Sumner Regional Medical Center Cancer Center earned reaccreditation sta-

HMC doubles size of critical care unit People who knew TriStar Hendersonville Medical Center when it opened its doors in 1979 likely wouldn’t recognize it today, as the last 35 years have seen the facility expand and grow to offer the most comprehensive healthcare network in the region and enhancing services as new technologies become available. “We are certainly very proud of our accomplishments,” said Chief Executive Officer Regina Bartlett. “But we are more excitBartlett ed about where we are today and where we will be in the future.” The medical center has taken on several upgrades and additions to services over the last few years. In 2012, the hospital completed a $3 million expansion of its Critical Care Unit, doubling bed capacity from 10 to 20. Later that year, it opened TriStar Women’s Imaging Hendersonville, an off-site facility that caters to women by only offering mammograms and other modalities specific to women. “Doubling the size of our critical care unit has impacted this community in so many ways,” Bartlett said. “We’re able to alleviate the burden of a seriously ill loved one for even more families by offering more of this level of care close to home.” In 2013, the facility began construction on TriStar ER Portland, a satellite emergency room in the Portland community scheduled to open before the end of 2013. Also, during the summer

TriStar Hendersonville received a Certificate of Need from the state to construct and operate a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. Opening the unit will require additional construction at the facility with plans for more services and patient rooms. And along with the technical advances the hospital is making, TriStar Hendersonville continues to recruit high caliber physicians of many different medical specialties. “With our expansions and additions, we are equally fortunate to boast a staff of highly trained and qualified physicians,” Bartlett said. “The quality of life here in Hendersonville and Sumner County has allowed us to recruit many talented physicians from primary care to a wide range of specialties.” Along with a very strong base of primary care physicians, TriStar Henderson-

ville is home to numerous medical specialties, including allergy and immunology; cardiology; dermatology; gastroenterology; gynecology; neurology; obstetrics; orthopaedics; otolaryngology; pain management; pediatrics; podiatry; pulmonology; rheumatology; and urology. Surgical specialties also span a board range of needs, such as plastic and reconstructive; orthopaedic; gynecological; and vascular surgical procedures available alongside general surgery capabilities at the hospital. TriStar Hendersonville is home to the county’s first Accredited Chest Pain Center. This means the hospital has met or exceeded established criteria confirmed by on-site evaluations by the Society of Chest Pain Centers, and statistics show chances for survival increase 37 percent when a

Salvus Center now offers dental services Although there is medical help for Sumner County residents who are uninsured, until now there has never been an affordable alternative for adult dental care. The Salvus Center, which provides low-cost medical services to uninsured working residents, recently opened its low-cost dental clinic one day a week in Gallatin. A partnership with several area dentists donating their time to the nonprofit has made this service possible. “We have started seeing patients on a limited basis, and this is exciting for us since we have been sending people to Nashville (for dental care),’’ said Shelley Ames, Salvus executive director. Ames said the patients now being seen at the dental clinic are those who have already been approved through the Salvus Center for medical care.


“They have to be working and have no insurance,’’ Ames said. While all ages can get services at the dental clinic, Ames said, the majority of patients so far have been adults. “We don’t see many children, because they have access to TennCare,’’ she

said. The agency is using space in the basement of the Sumner County Health Department's Gallatin location. The area formerly served as a dental clinic funded through the state, but when those funds stopped, so did the clinic. For now, the Salvus den-

tal clinic is just doing extractions, Ames said. “I hope we can get to the position to save the teeth, but at this point we are just meeting those immediate needs,’’ Ames said. “We are probably seeing 40 patients a month. Right now, we are only open on Friday mornings, and we hope to expand that.’’ Local dentists donating their time to the Salvus clinic are Bill Taylor, Jayson Tabor, Jim Bevans, Andrew Cox and Scott Fischer of Hendersonville, and Gallatin dentists Steve Mays, Fernanda Hensley, Thomas Herring, Phillip Smith, Eric Schuh, Robert Glass, Richard Horwat, Thomas Herren and Graham Locke. Several foundations have stepped forward to help fund the new dental clinic, including the Memorial Foundation, the HCA Foundation, and the Baptist Healing Trust.

Q&A Brenda Payne is the president of the Hendersonville Chamber of Commerce

How has the county grown in the last year? Sumner County has seen significant growth in areas of new business startups, jobs, sales tax revenue, population and home values while county and most city taxes have remained level or seen small increases. Over 900 new jobs have been created in 2012, sales tax revenue is up over 9 percent county wide and our population continues on an upward trend with a 3.4 percent increase since the last census. What sectors of business have seen the most

growth? Manufacturing, distribution, call centers and business services have seen the most growth. Sumner County has Payne created a dynamic environment for business to thrive with low taxes, great schools, affordable housing and diverse recreational amenities. An improved economy coupled with education and workforce preparedness efforts allows both new business and existing firms to expand operations using the available workforce.

What should be the top three priorities for Sumner County in 2014? Sumner County has significant developments in manufacturing and retail but much more emphasis should be placed on the development of Class A office space providing opportunities for high wage jobs to sustain our tax base, schools and services. Continued emphasis on workforce preparedness to assure that the needs of our existing and future businesses will be met is a significant priority. We must prioritize the improvement of transportation corridors and develop plans for multiple transit options to meet the needs of our citizens.

What geographic regions of the county are ripe for growth in 2014? All areas of Sumner County have incredible potential for growth in 2014 and beyond. Our central location for transportation, recreational facilities, historic preservation and tourism sites create unique options for every city. What Sumner County needs is... To continue to promote its superb lifestyle, warm and generous people, moderate cost of living, access to outstanding schools, healthcare, arts and culture. Sumner County is the best of all worlds grounded with family values and an eye to the future.

Business growth flourishes in Sumner County By Paige Brown Gallatin Chamber of Commerce, Executive Director

With an increase in population in the last decade of more than 23 percent, growth in Sumner County is not limited to residents. Currently, home to more than 168,000 people, Sumner County has about 15,000 business entities, according to the U.S. Census. Ranging from large manufacturing, industry and distribution to small independent businesses, economic indicators show that the business sector in Sumner County is in a stable recovery state. Decreased unemployment, healthy increases in sales tax revenue, and increases in real estate transactions and new home construction all illustrate that Sumner County is thriving. Sumner County attracts business based on many

attributes. Its scenic beauty, natural amenities and many affordable living options make it a choice location for relocation. Its diverse offerings suit the needs of a wide scope of business. Whether it’s proximity to Brown Nashville or access to interstates, the Cumberland River, rail or airport, it is available in Sumner County. Volunteer State Community College provides specialized training for business while both Volunteer State and Union University offer higher education opportunities for individuals. The completion of Highway 109, ultimately linking I-40 and I-65 and running through Lebanon, Gallatin and Portland is expected to

bring many new opportunities. While the economy of recent years has challenged business, Sumner County has retained its major employers. Many, including ABC, Kyowa, North American Stamping, RC Tenn, Servpro Industries, Unipress, Weir Minerals, Windham Professionals and others have undergone sizable expansions and increased employment. Government, healthcare and manufacturing and distribution remain the sectors that employ the greatest concentration of workers. The retail sector has experienced tremendous growth in several areas of Sumner County, as evidenced by steadily increasing sales tax revenue (6 percent over 2012 in recent months). Many chain retailers and restaurants have expanded into Sumner Coun-

ty, with concentration in Hendersonville and Gallatin. Independently owned businesses have increased throughout all areas of Sumner County. The eighth largest county in Tennessee and consistently among the fastest growing (currently at 1.4 percent), Sumner County is expected to continue to thrive. Focus on attracting quality jobs remains a top priority.Area Chambers of Commerce, municipal economic development professionals, and the countywide Forward Sumner Economic Partnership are all actively recruiting, while striving to help retain and grow existing business. Residents and business owners can be confident that their county is among the best destinations in Middle Tennessee, committed to remain one of state’s top choices for business.

Cumberland River bridge named for Durham

The State Route 109 bridge should be finished in 2014. FILE

When the current State Route 109 Bridge was built over the Cumberland River in the 1950s, Walter T. Durham hoped that it would be named after his grandfather, Sen. J.T. Durham, who attempted to have the bridge built some two decades before. Around 1929, Sen. Durham passed a bill to fund the construction of the bridge, which would later be referred to as “the only bridge in the state that was paid for twice,’’ by


| FACT BOOK 2013

his grandson and Tennessee’s former state historian Walter T. Durham. “The bonds were sold, the state raised the money and put it in the Bank of Tennessee,’’ Durham said in March. “It was not the state’s bank and within two or three days after the deposit was made the bank went under and the state lost 99 percent of the money. There was not enough money left to do anything.’’ Then, in the 1950s the state legislature again approved

funding for the bridge, but it was never named in honor of the senator who first championed its construction. However in March of 2013, State Sen. Ferrell Haile, RGallatin, introduced legislation that would name the new crossing “Walter T. Durham Bridge.’’ “I’m very flattered by that; that’s quite an honor,’’ Durham said when told of the naming. The Gallatin City Council also unanimously passed a

resolution endorsing the proposed naming of the bridge. Durham, a longtime Gallatin resident, died May 24, 2013 at the age of 88. He served as the state’s historian from 2002 until his death. “We thought he was very deserving with all he’s done for Sumner County and that his father was involved in getting this bridge,’’ Haile said. The bridge is scheduled to be completed by early 2014.


Getting around Sumner and beyond Emissions sites and bus schedules Sumner County passenger vehicles and light-duty trucks 1975 or newer are required to be tested for emissions before they can be renewed or a new plate purchased. Vehicles are also checked for tampering to make sure those cars and trucks that should have a catalytic converter still have the equipment. Only those vehicles with a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) greater than 10,500 pounds are exempt from the emissions test requirement. Diesel-powered vehicles are no longer exempt. To have vehicles tested, owners may take their license renewal notice or proof of vehicle ownership, such as their title, to the testing site. The Gallatin location is the only permanent emissions station in the county, but several mobile emissions testing centers are also available.

Emissions Test Sites Gallatin – 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday and Tuesday; and 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday through Friday; 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday. 951 Grassland Place across from Volunteer State Community College. Holiday hours vary. Portland – 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday; and 1-4 p.m. Thursday (three consecutive days a month) next to the Streets Department on Stevison Ham Road off Highway 109N.

Remember, these spots are designated for your convenience, and you park at your own risk. For a complete list of stops for both express buses, go to and select Regional Bus Service. RTA routes may change every six months. Routes do not operate on Saturdays, Sundays or holidays.

Renew license closer to home Hendersonville residents now have the option of renewing or ordering a duplicate driver’s license closer to home. Placed in an unused closet at city hall, a new self-service kiosk installed by the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security lets users renew and/or order duplicate driver licenses, as well as identification cards. According to safety department spokesperson Dalya Qualls, the kiosks were pi-

loted in three locations last summer: Knox, Shelby, and Williamson counties. The Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security will have installed 40 selfservice kiosks throughout the state by mid-January at a cost of about $45,000 per kiosk. After completing the process at the kiosks, a temporary driver’s license is printed with a photo in the form of a receipt. The receipt is valid for two weeks until

the actual license is delivered in the mail, Qualls said. “By utilizing these kiosks, it will help reduce wait times at the driver service centers across the state,’’ she added. As it stands now, the nearest driver service center for Hendersonville residents is about a 20-minute drive away in Gallatin. Qualls encourages applicants to bring their existing driver's license so their information can be obtained from the barcode on the back of the

driver license. However, if an existing driver's license is not available, the applicant can manually access information using his or her birth date and social security number. Qualls said material is provided at each location to answer basic questions of how to use the kiosks. There is also a video that assists customers through the process.

Sumner well represented in pro ranks Sumner County is known as one of the top areas for sports in the state of Tennessee. One only has to look in the college and professional ranks to see why. Hundreds of Sumner athletes have gone on to play in college over the past decade, and several have made their way to the professional ranks. Athletes with Sumner County ties who are currently playing professionally include:

Corey Brewer Brewer, who starred at Portland High School (winning the Class AA Mr. Basketball award in 2004) and then winning two national championships at the University of Florida, is currently a member of the National Basketball AssociaBrewer tion’s Minnesota Timberwolves. While the T-wolves are technically the fourth landing spot for Brewer, they are actually the team that drafted him in the first round 2007 draft (seventh overall). Brewer was a member of the 2010-11 Dallas Mavericks squad that won the NBA championship. The last two seasons he played for the Denver Nuggets, averaging 12.1 points a contest. That was second career-wise only to his 2009-10 stint with Minnesota. So far during his career, Brewer has averaged 9.5 points, 3.1 rebounds and 1.3 steals per contest.


| FACT BOOK 2013

John Jenkins Jenkins shattered high school scoring marks while at Station Camp, amassing more than 3,000 points during his career. He won the Class AA Mr. Basketball award in each his junior and senior seasons while averaging more than 40 points a game his senior year. He didn’t slow down at Vanderbilt University Jenkins either, averaging more than 20 points a game his junior season before leaving early to go pro. After being selected in the first round (23rd overall) by the Atlanta Hawks, Jenkins’ first year in the NBA was a bit of a transitional period, as he averaged 6.1points a game and shot 38 percent from 3point range.

Golden Tate The former Pope John Paul II High standout went on to star at Notre Dame and is making an impact in the National Football League with the Seattle Seahawks. Tate had 157 receptions for 2,707 yards during his four-year career at Notre Dame, with Tate 26 going for touchdowns. He also rushed for three more during that time. His senior year with the Irish he was an All-American selection. That earned him a secondround (60th overall) selection

by the Seahawks, and he’s been producing at the highest level as well.

Steve Delabar Delabar has ties to Sumner County, having pitched at Volunteer State Community College. He enjoyed a breakout 2013 season with the Toronto Blue Jays, earning a trip to pitch in the All-Star game. He was the people’s choice vote to earn a spot on the team. Delabar first reached the Major Leagues with the Seattle Mariners and since that time has averaged more than 13 strikeouts per nine innings of work

Tennys Sandgren Arguably the top player to don a racquet in Sumner County, Sandgren dominated junior circuits around Tennessee, the Southeast and all across the country before taking his talents to the University of Tennessee. He has recently battled in tournaments in International Tennis Federation, World Tennis Association tour and ATP Challenge Tour.

While at Tennessee he participated in the Junior circuits of the Australian Open, French Open, U.S. Open and Wimbledon. He had a 70-38 junior record in the ITF. He had a world ranking as high as 209 early in 2013.

Steven Fox The former Hendersonville High golf standout Fox, who won the 2012 U.S. Amateur Tournament, announced he was turning pro in September 2013. The U.S. Amateur championship earned Fox a spot in three of the Professional Golfers Association of America's (PGA) four major championships in 2013 – the Masters, the U.S. Open and the Open Championship. Fox also qualified for the World Amateur Golf Championship, which will be held in Turkey later this year, and he was selected to represent the United States in the 2012 World Amateur Team Championship. Fox also reached the round of 16 at the U.S. Amateur Public Links Championship in July.
