Dale Randolph has been awarded the Book of Golden Deeds by McMinnville’s Evening Exchange Club for his lifetime of work in the community.“The person we are presenting the Book of Golden Deeds award to tonight is, and has always been, known as a hard worker,” said McMinnville Evening Exchange Club member Jennifer Boyd. “Growing up on a farm hauling hay, chopping tobacco, learning how to build houses, and learning the glazing trade from his father, who owned and operated a glass and cabinet shop in Sparta, he is a man of many talents.”Born April 20, 1954 to Leo and Louise Randolph, he has one sister, Susan Randolph, wife Debbie and two children, son Justin and daughter Whitney, and two great-grandsons, ages 6 and 8.“He is known as an excellent basketball player with the position of center, and having an outstanding hook shot,” Boyd revealed in making the surprise presentation to Randolph. “He helped lead his team to the boys state tournament in 1972 and his team was dubbed The Blitz Kids by a Nashville newspaper due to their speed up and down the court.”After graduating sixth in his class in 1972, he moved to Knoxville and attended an electronics school where he met his future wife, Debbie.
