Inky Johnson

Former University of Tennessee defensive back Inky Johnson will be the keynote speaker at Wilson County Athlete Day, Sunday, Dec. 15 at Lebanon’s Sweet Saviour Community Church.

An inspirational / motivational speaker, Johnson nearly lost his life while making a tackle against Air Force during a 2006 contest. Nerve damage as a result of the injury left him unable to continue his football career, but the Atlanta resident continues to impact youth by speaking to school and church groups.

“Inky has a great message, not only for athletes, but for young people from all walks of life,” said event organizer Shavez Jobe.

Tickets are $10 in advance and are available at the Lebanon Barber Shop, 211 S. Cumberland St., or $15 at the door. Please call 547-1497 for information.

The program will start at 3 p.m. at the church, located at 210 Alligood Way.
