Jun 09, 2014
The Bristol Campus held a Memorial Day program on Thursday, May 29th. David Roach, student activity council chair and Michael Stout, campus director welcomed students to the program and briefly spoke in honor of those who made the ultimate sacrifice while serving our country. Guest speaker State Representative Timothy Hill spoke to students about what Memorial Day means to him. “Each of us can think of a family member or knows a family that has been affected by war,” he said.
Representative Hill advised students, “As you are aware of those who have lost family members in service, please try to support them.” He also requested that students go out of their way to thank our service men and women. During the program students honored America’s fallen heroes and sang "The Star Spangled Banner" and "America the Beautiful."
Representative Hill is a small business owner. He has served on several committees including Business and Utilities, and the House Health Subcommittee. He encouraged students to reach out to him and he emphasized that his position as representative relies heavily on feedback that he receives from his constituents. “As always, it is an honor to serve as your representative in Nashville,” said Representative Hill. “My goal is to serve in a manner that can make you proud and be responsive to your concerns.” After his presentation, he spent time receiving questions from students.
