Young Leaders Society



Story and photography by Joyce Taylor

The United Way recently hosted a celebration of their Young Leader Society by inviting the group and some of their mentors to gather at the beautiful Vintage at the Avenue. Drinks and appetizers were enjoyed while the group visited and networked. Head MTSU Women’s Basketball Coach Rick Insell addressed the group.

The purpose of the group is to harness the power of those 40 and younger to make a difference. Members connect to their communities and each other through special events like this one
and volunteer projects. If you are looking to network with new people, become a better leader, or make a personal commitment to your community, join United Way’s Young Leader Society.

Young Leaders who make a minimum annual gift of $500 to United Way, are invited to participate in Young Leader Society events and engagements throughout the year.

If you or someone you know is interested in learning more about Young Leader Society, contact Amy Painter at [email protected] or (615) 893-7303 ext. 105.

  • Editor's Letter

    August is the calendar month when summer begins its slow crawl towards autumn, but not before a few more hot days and thunderstorms. Enjoy the bounty of the season: vine-ripened tomatoes, ripe melon, sweet corn on the cob, and blueberries are just a few of my favorites. Luckily for us, Murfreesboro is blessed with one of the finest Farmer’s Markets in the state where we can do just that! Nothing screams summer better than a homecooked meal of fresh fruits and vegetables, locally grown and sold. Read More
