Professionals gathered at 8:00 AM at Trevecca’s Boone Business Building Convocation Center for breakfast, networking, and a short program. Speakers included University President Dan Boone, Professor Jim Hiatt, and Matthew Mullins (Committee Chair, ’97).
A short video was shown which highlighted the Castanea Project, an initiative begun by several Trevecca alumni and their friends who sought to live in an intentional community setting in the Chestnut Hill urban neighborhood of south Nashville that surrounds the University. Work is currently being done to renovate an apartment complex that will provide low-income housing to those in transition and to instill a sustainable food culture at the apartments. This will allow all residents to participate in growing, reclaiming, distributing, composting, cooking, and eating together.
The Trevecca Association of Business Professionals plans to assist this project by providing business advice, supporting it financially and participating in service projects.
The hope of the Trevecca Association Business Professionals is to connect with fellow business professionals associated with Trevecca, serve the greater community and engage others in the work Trevecca is doing. As alumni who have been empowered by Trevecca to lead and serve, this group looks forward to using their work, wealth and wisdom to make a difference in the world.
Special thanks to the sponsors who helped make it a no cost event for attendees: ePartners, eTrans Plus, Momentum Healthware, Dr. Gerald Skinner, Lellyett & Rogers Company, and PK Pictures.
