    WCTE Presents
    Celebrating 35 Years of Music & Tourism

    Join WCTE for its highly anticipated Annual Dinner, scheduled for Thursday, April 24 at the Leslie Town Centre in Cookeville.
    Come celebrate 35 years of WCTE with this special event highlighting our locally presented music series “Jammin at Hippie Jack’s” and “Bluegrass Underground,” as well as the WCTE produced “Smithville Fiddlers’ Jamboree,” and “Discover the Upper Cumberland.”

    Susan Whitaker, Commissioner of Tourist Development for the State of Tennessee, will be the keynote speaker. Members of WCTE are welcome to join us for a reception at 5 p.m., while the general reception begins at 5:30 p.m. Dinner is scheduled from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

    Appointed commissioner in January, 2011 by Governor Bill Haslam, Whitaker held the same position in Governor Phil Bredesen’s cabinet for the previous eight years. Whitaker oversees the state’s marketing and publicity with the ultimate goal of promoting Tennessee tourism.

    Among Whitaker’s many achievements, she has helped launch the Discover Tennessee Trails & Byways program, Tennessee’s Sustainable Tourism initiative, the Tennessee Civil War Trails program, and co-chairs Tennessee’s Civil War Sesquicentennial Commission.

    “We at WCTE are so pleased to have Commissioner Whitaker as our guest speaker this year,” enthused WCTE Membership Manager Sonja Higgenbotham. “I look forward to her speaking on behalf of WCTE regarding our contributions to the Upper Cumberland and Tennessee tourism though the national exposure that our programming provides.”
