Mayor of Clarksville
City of Clarksville - Clarksville, TNClarksville, TN – Around Monday’s national holiday, as a community, we pause to reflect on the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. We study the words he spoke decades ago, and they still inspire us today.

One of my favorite quotes of his is this:  ““The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. … Intelligence plus character – that is the goal of true education. The complete education gives one not only power of concentration, but worthy objectives upon which to concentrate.”
