 In 1983, the Fayette County Training School's 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 in Fayette County.


The Fayette County Schools Alumni Association, Inc., (FCSAA) was formed to provide financial assistance to college bound graduating seniors of our public high schools 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 $1,013,800.00 in scholarships to more than 639 students.  Funds are raised through membership fees, donations, contributions from United Way of the Mid-South and other fundraising activities. Our primary fundraising event is the Annual Spring Banquet.  Although the 2020 banquet was virtual, thanks to our supporters, fundraising continued.  


To make a donation toward the future of  Fayette County Schools graduates, send your check or money order to:  FCSAA, P. O. BOX 586, Somerville, TN 38068.
