STAND Fun Run Update

The Fun Run was a great success with over 40 participants and $200 was raised for the TAND scholarship fund including the sale of 5 STAND t-shirts. Past presidents Catherine Austin and Dee Pratt, current president Mary Catherine Schallert and President-Elect Brian Jones and numerous other board of directors were in attendance. 

Members from over eight programs across the state participated. Middle Tennessee State served their own healthy alternatives to meal bars and sports drinks for a marketing project featuring National Nutrition Month. Food Science classes from ETSU also provided meal bars for runners. A Nashville themed gift bag was won as a first place prize. A fun time was had by all. 








The Students of TAND, or STAND, founded this association with the goals to promote engagement and networking among students and RDNs across Tennessee. Last year, Temple Hughs served as the Student Representative on the Board of Directors, and the collaboration was a success. With the help of Amy Richards, she laid the groundwork for STAND to empower our 400 student members to become future leaders in food and nutrition. By meeting program directors across the state and combining the experience of our faculty advisor Jackie Roos, STAND is looking forward to uniting our members using a student representative from each of the 11 DPD programs and 8 Dietetic Internships to coordinate a statewide canned food drive and social media pages highlighting student participation. An award will be given at the TAND Annual Meeting for the most active program. STAND looks forward to our inaugural year as we pave the road for our members to professional success through the Tennessee Academy.
