Legendary coach, Nashville legend, Ed Temple dies

Coach Ed Temple was a Nashville and American legend, the embodiment of perseverance, determination and success.

As women’s track coach at Tennessee State University from 1953 to 1994 and coach of the U.S. women’s Olympic track team in 1960 and 1964, Coach Temple ranks among the most impressive leaders in the history of sports both nationally and internationally. He is recognized in greater Nashville for the impact he made, not just on the lives of his Tigerbelles and the world of track but on our society.

As important as his contributions on the track are the marks he made off it. Coach Temple was just as proud that every single one of his 40 Olympians earned her diploma as he was of his 23 Olympic medalists. The success his program achieved operating in the Deep South during the days of Jim Crow is as much a testament to his strength and determination, and that of his Tigerbelles, as any records they set on the track.

Jack Turner to receive 23rd Annual Joe Kraft Humanitarian Award.

The Community Foundation will honor Jack B. Turner as recipient of the 23rd Annual Joe Kraft Humanitarian Award on Tuesday, Oct. 25 at Music City Center.

A philanthropist and visionary, Jack has dedicated himself to a broad range of charitable causes throughout Middle Tennessee and beyond. He has done so the hard way: by constantly working to strengthen civic institutions, individually and collectively, and by persistently creating constructive conversation.

The Joe Kraft Humanitarian Award was created to perpetuate the memory of a remarkable person who led our community by strength of character and unwavering integrity. The award is given annually to individuals who, like Joe, have made life better for others through hard work, bold dedication to service and strong faith in the human spirit.

Matthews Mission

The Jordan Matthews “Match My Stats” campaign encourages fans, philanthropists and everyone in between to join Matthews Mission in giving back. When you sign up for one or more of the pledge levels available, you’re helping Matthews Mission raise funds for programs that will benefit under-served youth in the Philadelphia, Nashville and Huntsville communities. The better I perform and the more pledges you give, the more children we’ll all be able to help through these efforts. At the end of the 2016 season, all donations will be given to the Boys & Girls Clubs to enable children to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.

Thank you for your support and for helping Matthews Mission give back to our communities! – Jordan Matthews #81
