#PIONEERUPDATE (May.2018)

Dear Pioneer Nation,

Welcome to the May 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.  

We are pleased to report that the Tusculum Athletics Department, including coaches and administration, has achieved 100% participation in giving to the Pioneer Club campaign this year.  The Pioneer Club campaign has generated over $131,000 in cash gifts from 273 members with one month remaining in the 2017-2018 fiscal year.  In addition, the Pioneer Club has generated over $97,000 in gift-in-kind donations this fiscal year.  The Club is looking for 47 new members to join before June 30, 2018 to help reach our membership goal of 320 members.  If you have not joined the Pioneer Club this year, we respectfully ask that you consider becoming a member to support our student-athletes. 

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.  We also have plans to complete a renovation of the Roger M. Nichols Tennis Complex by September 2018.

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!

Sincerely,

Rosalie was the first athlete on the outside of the field of 22 jumpers when it was announced on Monday, missing the final berth in the field by .01 meters (one-half inch). However, meet officials informed Tusculum head coach Lionel Nau Thursday morning that due to a scratch in another event, an athlete would be added from the next-strongest event, which is the men's triple jump.

The addition of Rosalie in the triple jump gives the Pioneers competitors in four of the 21 men's events at the NCAA Championships, along with Widchard Guervil in the 100 meters and 200 meters and the 4x100-meter relay team. The men's triple jump will be contested on Saturday, May 26 at 12:45 p.m.

Tusculum student-athletes give back to the community

GREENEVILLE, Tenn. --- Being a student-athlete can be demanding in terms of both energy and time.  So, one might excuse them for focusing solely on academics and their respective sports team during college.  But Tusculum athletic teams have been very active in giving back to the community, whether their involvement occurs on their own or within the team setting.

During the recently completed 2017-2018 academic year, Tusculum student-athletes, coaches and support staff have performed over 3,800 hours of community service.

Also, the Pioneer Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (PSAAC) raised over $5,200 for the Make-A-Wish Foundation, the organization's chosen philanthropy.
