Dear Pioneer Nation,

Welcome to the February 2018 issue of #PIONEERUPDATE, the monthly newsletter of the Tusculum Pioneer Club.  #PIONEERUPDATE is provided exclusively to Pioneer Club members prior to being posted on our social media platforms, giving you a first look at what’s happening in Tusculum Athletics.  

The Pioneer Club campaign has generated over $115,000 in gifts from 233 members with four months remaining in the 2017-2018 fiscal year. 

Our biggest facility project continues to be the Tusculum Field of Dreams Project.  We have been, and will continue, approaching student-athlete alumni, businesses, foundations, and friends of Tusculum Athletics for financial support of this endeavor.  Donors to this project will be recognized as members of our Pioneer Club.  For those of you interested in finding out more information on this project, please contact Blake Cantrell at bcantrell@tusculum.edu or 423-636-7331.  Other facility projects expected to be completed within the next six months include a new batting cage for Tusculum Softball and a complete renovation of the Roger M. Nichols Tennis Complex.

Our success is directly linked to our loyal Pioneer Club members and the great supporters of Tusculum and Pioneer Athletics.  With your generous financial commitments, we are able to provide our student-athletes with a first-class experience. 

We wish each of you a great day and Go Pioneers!
