Sumner County's Tennessee Teen Court Program Inc. will celebrate 10 years of service with a scholarship benefit dinner, silent auction and awards May 3 at Hendersonville Christian Academy, 355 Old Shackle Island Road. Teen Court provides juveniles who are first-time offenders an opportunity to face a jury of their peers. All proceeds from the event will go to the program's Mary Ann Williams Scholarship. Williams was the program coordinator with the Sumner County Juvenile Court, and was instrumental in starting the teen court program, which since 2003 has awarded more than $40,000 in scholarships to Sumner County Teen Court seniors. Tickets are $15 and can be purchased by contacting Tammy Lee at 451-6035.
