The annual Mary Ann Williams Scholarship Benefit Dinner and Silent Auction raised $8,600 for the Sumner County Teen Court earlier this summer. The event honored Williams, who worked for 20 years with the Department of Children Services before becoming the program coordinator with the Sumner County Juvenile Court. While serving in that role, she was instrumental in starting the first teen court program in the state. Money raised at the event funds several college scholarships, which the court awards to teen participants. This past year, the court awarded $7,500 in scholarships. The evening also included the presentation of awards and a celebration of the program’s 10-year anniversary. Download an article about the event
