Nashville, Tenn.  --- In a continued effort to serve the Nashville community, members of the Tennessee State University track and field team volunteered with Hands on Nashville at Head Middle Magnet School.

On Saturday, Sept. 24 members of the TSU track team, students and faculty from Head Magnet School along with other volunteers  participated in Hands on Nashville Day. The volunteers focused on mulching the grounds of Head Magnet in an effort to increase the curb appeal of the school grounds.

"The students were impeccable representatives of Tennessee State University," said assistant principal Gary Hughes.  "They were wonderful role models for our own students who were here at the school working also.  I asked each member of the TSU track team who was present to consider mentoring an at-risk student at our school, and several have emailed me and have agreed to do so."

More than 1,800 volunteers participated in the community's largest day of service for Metro Nashville Public Schools. This year marks the 20th anniversary of Hands On Nashville's signature volunteer event and is celebrated by the Middle Tennesseans who donated more than 7,200 hours of their time to revamping 55 Metropolitan Nashville public schools.

"We appreciate the members of the storied TSU track program working to help improve our campus this past Saturday, and we look forward to ongoing and productive relations with TSU in the future."
