Clarksville Mother Celebrates Son’s First Birthday by Helping Preemies in Need

 

Miller-Motte Technical CollegeClarksville, TN – Stacy Robers is the mother of two young sons. She also has her RN and works in the health field at Miller-Motte Technical College instructing the CNA (Certified Nursing Assistant) students. For those who know Robers, it is not a surprise that she would rather donate the money, that she would spend on her son Ethan’s first birthday for gifts, to the NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) at Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt and use it to bless others.

The reason Robers is donating that money is because she knows first-hand how hard it is to have a preemie. Robers explains how helping others who have preemies can make such a big difference after their birth and during the time needed for their babies to grow. This is the message that Robers posted on her Facebook page.

Kim McMillan's Campaign Headquarters

Fifty plus people gathered on lawn in front of the Old Coca Cola Bottling plant (330 North Second Street) as Mayoral Candidate Kim McMillan opened her Campaign headquarters there on Tuesday afternoon.  The opening brought people together to socialize, meet the candidate, and to pick up yard signs. The event was kept informal with the candidate circulating through the crowd meeting with and talking the issues with attendees.

McMillan had initiated a campaign for Tennessee Governor, but made the decision to withdraw and instead enter the race for Clarksville City Mayor when current Mayor Johnny Piper announced he would not seek re-election in March 2010.
