The Tennessee RiverLine announced the recipients of its 2022 awards last week at the Tennessee RiverLine Summit. In 2022 more than 220 volunteer members, who constitute 20 Tennessee RiverTowns Local Leadership Teams, helped with many things such as raising awareness of the Tennessee RiverLine and facilitating community engagement. Each community's Local Leadership Team is offered the chance to nominate a single member of their team who demonstrates exemplary effort and leadership through their participation as an "Extra Mile Award Recipient"

Roane County Government is excited to share that the 2022 Extra Mile Award for Roane County went to Bonnie Angus! Bonnie works in the Roane County Executive Office. Congratulations Bonnie!
