Jason Hurley, Director of simulation lab at Whitson-Haster School of Nursing at Tennessee Technical University gave a fantastic presentation on how the University is incorporating simulations into the training of medical personnel at the University. A very interesting presentation on how technology is enhancing the experience students get during their training, that they would otherwise have had to wait until they actually gained the experience with a patient. Thank you Jason. Pictured with Jason (L) are club members Henrietta Goodwin, and George Weber.
Tina Miller, assessor of property for White County made a very informative presentation to the Sparta Rotary Club today. Tina gave a very concise overview of how the assessor office does its job, and what it means to the assessed value of property and revenue in White County. Tina did stress that they do not determine taxes, they just do the assessing of the property. Thanks Tina for a great overview. Steve Ware, Rotary President elect 2017 -2018 is thanking Tina.
Club Member Michael Hale, gave the club a fantastic presentation of Geneaolgy, and how to get information on family geneaolgy. Michael is the Geneaolgy guru at the White County Library, so if you need assistance, stop by the library and see Michael. Thanks Michael, it was a great stimulator fo us.
