TCAT Vice President Honored for Alcohol, Drug, and Violence Prevention Work

On November 22, 2019 the Coalition for Healthy and Safe Campus Communities (CHASCo) awarded Ms. Henrietta Kellum Lusk the Susanna L. Baxter Alcohol, Drug, and Violence Prevention in Higher Education Award for her statewide efforts in alcohol, other drug, and violence prevention at the collegiate level. The Baxter Award, given biennially, recognizes an individual in the State who, like Baxter, has volunteered his or her time and energy to achieve positive results in the area of alcohol and other drug and violence prevention. 

Ms. Kellum-Lusk (pictured on the Right) served as Vice President for the TN College of Applied Technology - Crump and just retired in Fall 2019. She was nominated for the award by Carolyn Beverly, the Retired President of TCAT Whiteville. Here are the sentiments she shared in her nomination. 

“Henrietta Kellum Lusk has been a member of CHASCO since its inception while working with Susanne Baxter. She was the first employee of the Tennessee College of Applied Technology System to get involved in the alcohol and drug prevention program. She brought awareness of how prevention should be handled and developed other required documents while working with those who have professional training in this area.  

On her campus she taught classes on prevention to the students, faculty, and staff. She developed a booklet to use with the training. She sought opportunities for the students to have a better understanding of alcohol, drugs and violence and how to prevent these areas from taking over their lives by participating in the many grants and other programs received from CHASCO."

CHASCo is honored to present this award to Ms. Henrietta Kellum Lusk for her years of dedication to the students and community that she served.
