Launching business careers, Old Hollywood fundraiser

Launching Careers: Tired of your adult kids “finding themselves” while still living in your basement? Has Profes- sor Bart Liddle got the program for you (well, for your kids)! The director for Graduate Business Lipscomb University has both graduate and undergraduate business courses of study proven to successfully lead to business careers.  One curriculum partners with corporations such as Lifepoint, Second Harvest and Health Stream to place students with high potential where they can gain real world experience.  Of those students Lipscomb has placed, 70 percent have wound up with careers at the company.  Liddle calls the program so successful Lipscomb plans to expand it.  Another program introduces student entrepreneurs to business by providing seed money for them to start legal or “Lipscomb legal” business. The profits of these student efforts go to aid other worthy businesses.

WOW!: What a great evening Green Hills Rotarians had at Hillwood Country Club with the ballroom filled with Rotarians and friends to hear John Hiatt. The event benefitted The Little Pantry That Could’s mission to supply area food banks. American rock guitarist John Robert Hiatt put on a “really big show” as guitarist, singer and songwriter. It was Hiatt who wrote songs like “Have a Little Faith in Me,” “Cry Love” and “Feels Like Rain.”  Or how about Bonnie Raitt’s “Thing Called Love?” Hiatt penned those words. Hiatt also wrote Greg Allman’s “Memphis In The Meantime,” Don Henley’s “Through Your Hands” and Three Dog Night’s “Sure as I’m Sitting Here.”
