THE NIA ASSOCIATION LUNCHEON Story & Photography by Shona Leah The Nia Association hosted a luncheon to commemorate 20 years of community service and to present The Daniel L. Stevens Memorial Scholarship. Nia Association was founded by Sergeant Major Daniel Stevens and Carol Stevens in 1997 with the purpose of providing care and opportunities to people with disabilities and their family members. It is a place to promote their belief that “everyone should have a purpose for living.” Treva Gordon, Tamara Persinger, and Kristen Davis welcomed guests. The invocation was given by Rev. Lawrence Laremore, and Juanita Charles delivered a motivational speech. Carol Stevens, daughter OF Sherri Stevens-Mack and family attended. Mayor Joe Pitts showed his support with first lady Cynthia Pitts and gave a Mayoral Proclamation. The scholarship was awarded to Tevin Gordon, a senior at West Creek High School. Tevin will be running crosscountry and attending Austin Peay in the fall. He said he, “was speechless and [felt] blessed” upon finding out he was the recipient of the $1,000 scholarship. Kristen Davis, Nia disability service officer, said the award was going to “an outstanding young man.” 98 • VIP Clarksville Magazine | August 2019
