Bash it for Bishop this Thursday

By SABRINA GARRETT
The Wilson Post

Golf enthusiasts are encouraged to Bash it for Bishop this Thursday at Pine Creek in Mt. Juliet.

Funds raised from the tournament will benefit local middle school student, Bishop Mikaelian, who has battled an inoperable brain tumor since early 2009. Bishop endured 15 months of chemotherapy, which seemed to stunt growth but did not shrink the 3 centimeter tumor, according to her biography on caringbridge.org.

Now 12-years-old, Bishop deals with reoccurring chronic pneumonia and has been hospitalized for it over 30 times in less than three and a half years. Her left vocal cord is paralyzed and she has surgery semi-annually to plump her cords in order to speak. Bishop is also unable to eat or drink by mouth and is fed through a g-tube in her stomach.

Tournament sponsors Michael Barrett, of Angel Healthcare Staffing, and his brother, Joe Barrett, heard about Bishops battle through Pine Creek employee Paul Lannom and were both eager to help.

This is a personal thing that we were moved to do. It impressed us that the Pine Creek staff was so concerned. We couldnt say anything except let us be a part of it, Michael said.

Joe added that anytime you can help someone else you should. It is a good cause.

Registration for the 1:30 p.m. shotgun start begins at noon. Entry fee is $50 per player and includes goodie bags, a barbecue lunch before play and the change to win $1,000 in prize money.

Participants can also register online at www.pinecreekgolf.net under the tournaments tab. Pine Creek Golf Course is located at 1835 Logue Rd. in Mt. Juliet.

School board approves tech center

By SABRINA GARRETT
The Wilson Post

A lease agreement with the Tennessee Board of Regents that will transform the vocational facility on the former Lebanon High School campus into a career technical center was approved by the Wilson County School Board with a 5-0 vote at their meeting on Monday night.

County Attorney Mike Jennings said that discussions with the TBR have been ongoing to find a solution that would address the concerns of both parties involved. I think we have done the best we can to deal with these issues, he added of the stipulations set forth by the board during their May meeting.

These issues included the safety of students that will be educated at the center, a yearly assessment and guaranteeing that spots would be available to Wilson County students since recent numbers show that about 40 percent of seniors who are graduating this year do not intend to go to college.

During an earlier interview with The Wilson Post, TBR Vice Chancellor James King said that he believes a technical center will greatly benefit students in the community. He said that America is in an era right now when having a marketable skill such as those learned at career technical centers is extremely valuable.

There are a lot of people right now with a generic degree (from a four-year college) who are struggling to find jobs. Ninety percent of students graduating from our centers are getting jobs in their field, he said.
