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.

In the spirit of Pat Summitt, at Retirement Connection, we are always looking for ways to improve and would appreciate any suggestions or insights you may have that would help the guide to be as great as possible. We also appreciate your suggestions on where we should distribute guides to make them more accessible to seniors in our community.

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)
