UTSI Sponsors Local Drug Awareness Program

The University of Tennessee Space Institute is this year’s banner sponsor for the area’s Drug-Free America program.  The program reaches out to fourth graders in Franklin, Coffee and Moore counties with the message “Say No To Drugs and Yes to Education!”  Dr. Angie Bukley, Interim UT Associate Vice President for UTSI, is shown above (left) with Molly Pickett, a representative of the City of Decherd, which is administering the area-wide program this year.  UTSI’s donation will go toward the cost of providing T-shirts to area students with the “Say No To Drugs and Yes to Education!” motto on the front and the UTSI wordmark (shown below the check) on the back.
