commencement_13-199Marty Dickens, chair of Belmont’s Board of Trustees, was recently honored by the Convention Center Authority and Mayor Karl Dean with the dedication of the Music City Center’s Marty Dickens Terrace. A longtime and influential volunteer of the Center, Dickens was one of the first community leaders to support the project and was instrumental in leading the coalition that fought for the downtown convention space.

“Marty’s vision from the very beginning was to build something that would be great for the city and the people of Nashville, and he worked tirelessly to make that dream a reality,” said Charles Starks, president and CEO of the Music City Center.

Since the Center’s inception in 2009, Dickens has served as chairman of the Convention Center Authority.

“I’m deeply appreciative of this wonderful honor, and Betty joins me in thanking Mayor Dean and the members of the Convention Center Authority for making this possible,” Dickens said. “I’m honored to be part of something that has had such a positive impact on the city of Nashville.”

The terrace is located on the east side of the Music City Center, directly across from the Omni Hotel.
