The Cherokee HS NJROTC and the Cherokee Chorale did an amazing job presenting the colors and singing the National Anthem.

Another Clinch-Powell Board Member, Nancy Barker, who serves as the Executive Director of the Hawkins County Chamber of Commerce, was the MC and did a phenomenal job.

It was great to be able to hear from our local officials and also let them know about our concerns about the lack of affordable housing here in East TN and across the state.
