The Frontier District invites you to their fundraiser luncheon at 12:00 pm on August 18th at the First Baptist Church, 2790 Pulaski Hwy, Columbia, TN. This is an RSVP event with your gift of $250 to support this outstanding Scouting program in the Frontier District of the Middle Tennessee Council Boy Scouts of America. There are also Table Host opportunities for up to 15 friends or business associates who will make a gift of $250 or more each to help support needed funding for local scouting programs.
The luncheon will feature Randy Boyd, President of the University of Tennessee, as the guest speaker.
Randy Boyd was appointed president of the University of Tennessee by the UT Board of Trustees on March 27, 2020, following a sixteen-month period as interim president.
Boyd also served as Gov. Bill Haslam’s special adviser for higher education. He was the architect for Tennessee Promise and Drive to 55 and was the founder and chairman of Tennessee Achieves—all initiatives aimed at increasing the number of Tennesseans with post-secondary degrees to 55 percent by 2025 and decreasing financial hardship for Tennesseans pursuing degrees.
Through his philanthropy, Boyd also supports the Boyd Center for Business and Economic Research and the Anderson Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation’s Boyd Venture Challenge seed grant program for student entrepreneurs, both through the Haslam College of Business at UT Knoxville.
Constantine ‘Con’ Vrailas will be honored for his extensive career, influence, and leadership in Maury County. Con was born in Egypt and later educated in Greece and the United States after arriving in 1961 with only a few belongings and $200 hidden in his socks. He went on to become a very successful businessman. Early in his career, Con worked in quality control for food industry businesses in New York, Virginia, and Florida before he and his wife Mary launched Magic Restaurants Inc., operating six Burger King franchises in Bedford, Marshall, and Maury counties. He will be honored for all his work in community service.
In addition, a local Eagle Scout, considered to be the Top Eagle Scout in the District, will also be honored at the luncheon.
