Senior Helps Organization Win Grant

Social Work senior Jimmy Smith interned last fall at The Contributor, Nashville’s “street newspaper” that focuses on the issues surrounding homelessness and poverty and is sold by homeless and formerly homeless individuals on the street as an alternative to panhandling. During Jimmy’s internship, he helped nominate The Contributor’s volunteer Executive Director Tasha French for the 2009 Titans Community QB Award. French recently won the award which resulted in a $10,000 grant from Tennessee Titans owner K.S. “Bud” Adams Jr and the Tennessee Titans Foundation to the organization. Signing up The Contributor for this award was one of Jimmy’s final duties at his internship last fall. Click here for video of the event.
