Pinnacle Financial Partners donate to Pickett Chapel restoration
Tuesday, June 24, 2014

Pinnacle Financial Partners has donated $2,500 to the Wilson County Black History Committee (WCBHC), which is raising funds to restore Pickett Chapel in Lebanon.

The chapel, built in the 1820s, is the oldest brick building in Wilson County.

“Pickett Chapel is a significant piece of Wilson County’s history, and helping to restore it is one way we can support the community at large,” said Lee Campbell, Pinnacle’s area manager for Wilson County.

In 2007, the WCBHC purchased the historic building on East Market Street that housed Pickett Chapel Methodist Church. After restoration, it will become the site of the Roy Bailey African American History Center and Museum, as well as a resource for the entire community and WCBHC headquarters.

From the Mt. Juliet Police Department

Mt. Juliet Emergency Communications Center Telecommunicator Richard Frankich received the Everyday Heroes award Sunday evening at the National Emergency Number Association (NENA) Conference at the Music City Center. The award, presented by the 911 Cares project, recognizes two emergency communication professionals a year who demonstrate an exemplary action while handling an emergency incident.

Richard Frankich was recognized at the NENA Award Ceremony by 911 Cares Project CEO Kevin Willet for his actions during a June 2013 Officer-Needs-Help call.  During the call, Frankich was the lone dispatcher in Mt. Juliet’s emergency communications center who worked purposefully to ensure an officer had the proper resources and back-up while dealing with a group of individuals who began to surround the officer.

Frankich was only one of two Telecommunicators selected nationally to receive the Everyday Heroes award, and he is the first Mt. Juliet Telecommunicator to be honored with this award.
