The TVA donated the benches that were used in the plant’s maintenance locker room to Riverview Elementary. The benches were refurbished and will now be used by student athletes at in Riverview’s locker rooms.
“And we thought that if we donate these benches, we maintain some of the history of the plant that was here for many years. So, we got the benches out of the plant, we refurbished them, and here they are. We presented them to the school this afternoon,” said Cedric Adams, TVA Principal Project Manager.
TVA officials say this is just a small part of showing the company’s interest in Memphis and the community through several projects and donations.
