Leadership Middle Tennessee - We Lead Through Helping Hands

Sunday evening, Sumner Regional Medical Center received 40 meals provided by the Hendersonville Demos’ restaurant. Sumner County resident and 2002 LMT alumnae Brenda Payne coordinated the efforts with Peter Demos (LMT 2010).

LMT is grateful for all of the generous donations received in just a few short days and are looking forward to seeing the impact this campaign will have on the region. The next county to participate is Montgomery. Our goal is to give relief in all 10 counties in short order.

Lee Rucks, president of Leadership Middle Tennessee says, “We are in an unprecedented time in our world and as I watch these great leaders that make up the over 500 participants over program’s 20 years; I am honored and humbled to see how they pull together as a group to find solutions to existing issues we face as a community. We are all in this together and really appreciate any donation you can give at this time.
