Clarksville Mayor Joe Pitts bestows Employee Service Awards

 

City of Clarksville 

City of Clarksville - Clarksville, TNClarksville, TN – For Eddie Combs, who’s worked for CDE Lightband for 45 years, trees are a big deal.

Combs has spent the last 11 years as the utility’s right-of-way foreman, and a big part of that job is managing how trees interact — or better, how they don’t interact — with power lines.

Eddie Combs, a 45-year employee at CDE Lightband, is congratulated Wednesday by CDE General Manager Brian Taylor, left, and Clarksville Mayor Joe Pitts. The City of Clarksville presented service pins to more than 200 workers at its annual employee awards breakfast.

Clarksville Mayor Joe Pitts reflects on the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr.

 

Written by Joe Pitts

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.”
