Tuesday, October 29 at 5:00 PM the majestic doors of the Tennessee Theatre will swing open to welcome over 1,600 area educators and influencers for the 14th annual Reach Them to Teach Them event. This year’s theme, WITH. serves as a powerful reminder that we do not do this important work alone. Together, we will be inspired to lock arms and unite in our common purpose of doing everything we can to REACH and TEACH every child entrusted to us. Of course, dinner is provided free of charge, AND we have a special gift for everyone in attendance!
Knoxville’s favorite radio talk show host, Hallerin Hilton Hill will be broadcasting LIVE from the theatre, and WATE-TV 6 anchor, Lori Tucker, will serve as our emcee this year in a collaborative effort to appreciate, encourage, and support the challenging and rewarding work embraced by educators across East Tennessee.
Our keynote speaker is ..… Jeremy Anderson! Don’t wait for a miracle, you are the miracle. ”— @1JEREMYANDERSON
Years ago, Jeremy experienced many challenges such as drug and alcohol abuse and constant failure in school. Today, Jeremy shares his personal story in order to inspire and challenge those in the world of education. He is a walking testimony on how to turn a mess into a message. Jeremy has made it his life's work to help students and teachers become the best version of themselves.
Whether you’re searching for a reason to believe or you just need a hope-filled reminder, the bottom line is that we do have tremendous power to make a difference in students’ lives, and Jeremy Anderson's message will compel us to embrace our calling with passion, purpose, and vision!
