The new year was celebrated in many ways, and White County was no exception for a variety of ways to ring in 2002. Many churches gathered for candlelight vigils and gospel singings, while many people chose to stay awake to watch the clock’s hands move past the midnight mark.
In a community where friends and neighbors celebrate triumphs and make resolutions for a brand new era, The Expositor has decided to review the positive stories of 2001.
-The most awaited event for any new year is the birth of the first new year’s baby, and White County registered 2001’s first arrival on Jan. 3. Amanda and Frankie Key welcomed their daughter, Winter Rain Key at 10:46 a.m. The newest member of the Key family weighed 7 lbs., 12 _ oz.
– Farming and agriculture has been one of the greatest sources of income for White County, and each January the USDA Soil Conservation Office names a Farmer of the Year. The winner is based on evaluation of the best farm and conservation practices over the previous year. Quinn Templeton of Central View was the winner for 2000.
– With education a main focus of citizens of White County, Doyle Elementary School was awarded a $10,000 technology grant by Education Networks of America.
– The Expositor proudly sponsors the Citizen of the Year awards each year, and 2001 was a milepost for the ceremony. Margaret Pearson, former mayor and community activist, was the first woman to be selected for the prestigious honor.
– Lorie Wright was named America’s Mrs. Tennessee. Wright earned other pageant titles during 2001 including Ms. Tennessee Ambassador and Mrs. Sparta International USA. The young mother and wife chose to work on community projects designed to benefit children.
– Christmas in April, a local organization with national chapters, celebrated its fifth year of activity as members worked to renovate and
repair homes for individuals who could not provide the services for themselves.
Nine houses were designated for the 2001 project, with 400 volunteers donating their time to help those in need.
– North Sparta Church of God officially dedicated their new building located on North Spring Street. Members of the church gathered in July to give thanks for all their blessings.
– Bill and Rena Johnson of Sparta donated approximately two acres on Bockman to be used for the building site for the new Sparta-White County Public Library. Library Director Cathy Taylor and Library Foundation board members were extremely pleased with the gift.
– White County entered a new era in justice as dedication ceremonies were held in November for the new justice center. The new facility was designed to house approximately three times the inmate population than the old jail utilizes the newest technology in correctional security.
– Sparta received a $399,000 grant from the state for a Welcome Center. The grant money was designated to renovate Oldham Theater located downtown. The City of Doyle also received a grant for $7,440 for a walking trail.
-White County teachers participated in the annual Bridgestone/Firestone Education Awards. White County teachers received more grants than any area schools. This marked the fourth year in a row local educators achieved this accomplishment.
