Wednesday, February 1st 2017 may just seem like another ordinary day to most people, but it held a little more meaning to women and girls all over the world. Wednesday was the 31st annual National Girls and Women in Sports Day, how amazing is that?

We are Thankful For....

With Thanksgiving this week, the staff here at the Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl/Nashville Sports Council took a moment to reflect on what we are thankful for. Take a look at what our staff had to say:

Scott Ramsey, President & CEO
There is a lot to be thankful for – a great wife, a great family, great friends and a great place to come to work in a great city.

NSC Young Professionals Network Pub Crawl

Thursday night, the Nashville Sports Council Young Professionals Network hosted their annual pub crawl sponsored by Broadway Entertainment. Young Professionals from all career fields gathered for food, drinks, and fun. The pub crawl started at Legends Corner, continued onto Second Fiddle, and made its final stop at The Stage. Broadway Entertainment has been a member of the Sports Council since 2001, and this is their second year sponsoring the pub crawl.

Volunteer of the Year

Today we recognized Walter Clark, a volunteer who has been involved with our organization for nearly 16 years! Walter first volunteered for the Country Music Marathon, directing people as they exited the bottom of the escalator at the old convention center. After hours of yelling over the noise as hundreds of people came through, he had no voice for two days and almost didn’t come back! Fast forward 16 years later and the Marathon is his favorite event to work. He enjoys getting to interact with people from all over the state, country, and even the world.
