Monthly Marketing Update
- August 2016


I graduated from University of Tennessee almost 20 years ago - YIKES! It was during that time that I was honored to have met Pat Summitt and remained a life long fan and admirer of hers. She passed away earlier this month from younger-onset Alzheimer’s Disease. For those that did not know who she was… she was the Lady Vols basketball coach and one of the winningest coaches of all-time (men or women.) She had many impressive stats, but one of the most impressive was that her students had a 100% graduation rate. Her attention to infinite detail has always impressed and I hope to give the same type of effort when publishing Retirement Connection Guide and serving our community.

Now that our newest edition is prepped for print, we will take a night to celebrate our most recent “win” and we hope you will join us on September 28th at the Retirement Connection Release Party.  Our last two release parties hosted almost 150 people for drinks and appetizers and we are expecting another great turnout for this event!

Nuggets of Knowledge


”You can't always be the strongest or most talented or most gifted person in the room, but you can be the most competitive.” - Pat Summit

(University of Tennessee Lady Vols Coach passed away at age 64 from younger-onset Alzheimer's Disease)

It was a challenge to find a favorite quote from Pat Summitt, since there are so many. She had very high expectations of herself and of those she coached, mentored, and met. The quote above is a favorite because it speaks to effort rather than skill or talent. Everyone has the potential to be the most competitive and give the full effort and she saw that potential in others.

~ Amy Schmidt, University of Tennessee class of ’96 Go Vols!
(for those who don’t know it: “Vol" is short for Volunteers)
