REGULAR MONTHLY MEETING
FCSAA Modifications of Planned Activities
Due to the Coronavirus, the FCSAA is announcing the following changes in plans:
Our monthly meeting that was scheduled for Saturday, March 28, 2020 has been cancelled.
The 23rd Annual Scholarship Banquet that was scheduled for Saturday, April 25, 2020 has been changed. There will not be a physical Banquet nor program booklet as in the past. Instead, we will have a conference call on that date at the same time.
Therefore, the selling of tickets and the acceptance of donations for ADS will be discontinued immediately. Refunds will be made unless the donors wish to make contributions to the FCSAA in those amounts.
A very significant feature of our banquet is the announcement of donations from classes that pooled their resources. This year class leaders will announce their totals by conference call on April 25th.
All class leaders should mail the pooled checks and money orders to the FCSAA, at P.O. Box 586, Somerville, TN 38068, no later than April 18, 2020.
More details on the conference call and the agenda will be announced later. The cooperation and support of members of the Fayette County Schools Alumni Association is greatly appreciated.

OUR MISSION STATEMENT
Our Mission is to provide opportunities for students to grow personally and professionally Leadership, Education and Networking.
In 1983, the Fayette County Training Schools Alumni Association (FCTSAA) was organized. A small group, led by the late Mr. Robert "Bob" Reed, wanted to "give back" to the community that inspired students of FCTS to achieve their dreams. Along with Bob, attendees at that meeting included Christine Lewis, Margaret Thurman Pruitt, Elroy Jones, the late Rosie Coleman Jones and Floyd Bonner. The name of the organization was later changed to Fayette County Schools Alumni Association, Inc. to include all public high schools with their various names.
The Fayette County Schools Alumni Association, Inc., FCSAA was formed to provide financial assistance to college-bound graduating seniors of our Public High School in Somerville, Tennessee. In 2002, the Association was incorporated as a nonprofit corporation in the state of Tennessee and in 2003 we received our 501 c (3) ruling from the IRS. Therefore, all contributions are tax deductible.
During the last few years, we have awarded over $400,000.00 in scholarships to more than 400 students. Funds are raised through memberships, donations, contributions from United Way of the Mid-South and fund raising activities and the primary fund raising Annual Spring Banquet.
