Tom Hutton encourages charitable giving
Because he gave an hour of time out of his busy schedule to speak with 40 5th-8th graders at Grace-St. Luke's Episcopal School. Instead of accepting an honorarium, Mr. Hutton asked that I ask our students to think about a charitable cause we'd like to support instead. We'll be donating $100 to MIFA. An MUS and University of Tennessee graduate, Mr. Hutton went on to play five years in the NFL before returning home to Memphis. He currently works as a VP at Boyle Investment Group. Nominated by Mike Boyer.
