200 partners. One goal.

Humbled. Honored. Grateful. Just a few words to describe our feelings about the great success and milestone we have reached in the past few months. More than 216 Nashville business and community organizations have committed to one goal by becoming a PENCIL partner with the Academies of Nashville- bettering the future of Nashville youth. Thank you all for believing in our students.

In appreciation of our new and existing partnerships, the PENCIL Foundation hosted a celebration Wednesday evening at the Horton Group. In case you weren’t able to be there, check out the fantastic presentations by Chief Academic Officer, Jay Steele, and Mayor Karl Dean. We want to thank everyone who was able to be there last night to make the event a fantastic success.

Also, be on the lookout for our upcoming Twitter Tour. If you or your business, would like to have the PENCIL Foundation or the Academies of Nashville come visit your company and capture information on your partnership please contact one of the Twitter Tour Guides.
