Cox visits Washington
Beth Cox, a third-year physical therapy student studying at Tennessee State University, was selected as the only PT student at the school to attend the 2012 Tennessee Physical Therapy Association Federal Advocacy Forum in Washington, D.C.
She, along with four other physical therapists from Tennessee, attended Tennessee Super Tuesday at the Senate and had the opportunity to meet and speak with Sen. Lamar Alexander and Sen. Bob Corker. Cox also met with Tennessee representatives to advocate for the profession of physical therapy in legislation.
Cox is the daughter of Rickey and Mary Ann Cox of Warren County. She is a 2005 graduate of WCHS and is earning her Doctor of Physical Therapy at TSU.
Students attend leadership forum
Bryce Caten and Megan Dishman, both upcoming seniors at Warren County High School, recently attended Harding University’s 56th annual National Leadership Forum in Searcy, Ark., from June 3-8.
Caten and Dishman were sponsored by Tennessee Farm Bureau as delegates to the forum, which is presented by the university’s American Studies Institute. Area Farm Bureaus and civic clubs selected the delegates, who were instructed in the values of leadership and learned how our country has developed its leaders. The forum taught them about comparative economic systems and ways to defend our society and its freedoms.
The students heard presentations by leaders such as Dean Sikes from the Spirit of American Foundation; John Foppe, a motivational speaker; Dave Grossman, who spoke on violence in schools; Jody Venkatessan, who spoke on economic issues; and Pat Socia, who encouraged the delegates to be leaders in sexual morality.
More than 300 young people from five states attended the forum.
