Russell Barnett Ford continues strong support of Motlow College athletics

January 29, 2014

The Russell Barnett Ford dealership of Tullahoma recently announced its donation of an automobile for Motlow College athletic coaches to use during recruiting trips. Pictured, from left, are Tori Raby-Gentry, Motlow athletic director, Dr. MaryLou Apple, Motlow president; Daryl Welch, chairman of the Motlow College Foundation; and Russell Barnett, owner of Russell Barnett Ford.
Head coaches at Motlow College will have a new vehicle option when they go on recruiting trips, thanks to the generosity of the Russell Barnett Ford dealership in Tullahoma. The dealership has agreed to loan the college an automobile for coaches' use.

"We are very grateful to Russell Barnett for his continued support of Motlow College athletics," said Dr. MaryLou Apple, president of the college. "Our coaches log a lot of miles as they travel throughout the southeast recruiting student athletes to come to Motlow. This generous donation will be of great benefit."

Russell Barnett Ford of Tullahoma is one of five area dealerships that comprise the Russell Barnett Automotive Family. Mr. Barnett has been a supporter of Motlow College athletics since he first opened Russell Barnett Ford of Tullahoma in 1981.
