John Mayfield did not always live a moral and spiritual life. His battles with alcoholism and drug addiction often led him into dangerous situations. He rarely took advantage of positive opportunities available to him, yet, through the grace of God, he survived. Now John wishes to show his gratitude for being able to turn around his life by assisting his fellow Cheatham Countians in their journey to create opportunities through post-secondary education. John will add to these funds through his estate plans with The Community Foundation and hopes that others will contribute as well, to better the lives of eager young scholars.
