ASHLAND CITY, Tenn. – In cooperation with University of Tennessee Extension, the Cheatham County Cattlemen’s Association recently held its 11th Annual College Scholarship Dinner and Benefit Auction at the Livery Stables in Pleasant View, Tennessee. Funds for this year’s college scholarship winners came from local donors and proceeds from a live auction, which combined totaled nearly $4,000.

Charles Head, brother of the late Coach Pat Head Summitt, was honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award, presented by UT Extension Cheatham County and the Cheatham County Cattlemen’s Association. Head, who recently retired from nearly 50 years of farming, has served his community on numerous agriculture related boards and has been a strong leader and supporter of the cattlemen’s association for many years. As a dark-fired tobacco and beef cattle producer, he not only provided for his family but was a huge help to others in any time of need.

Scholarships were presented to Greta Ball, Lucas Clark, Cody Hooks, Kalie Mahaney and Lilly Mahaney. Over the past ten years, the Cheatham County Cattlemen’s Association has provided nearly $40,000 in scholarships for 23 students pursuing degrees in any area of agriculture.

Through its mission of research, teaching and extension, the University of Tennessee Institute of Agriculture touches lives and provides Real. Life. Solutions. ag.tennessee.edu​.
