LYNCHBURG, TN (Mar. 31, 2016) — Motlow State Community College campuses in Fayetteville, McMinnville, Moore County and Smyrna will host separate Autism Awareness Walk events on Monday, Apr. 4.

The Moore County campus walk will begin at the Crouch Center at 1:30 p.m. and will progress for one lap around the loop road. A reception will follow the walk in the lobby of the Crouch Center. A yard sign will be posted in front of the Crouch Center that says, "Light it up Blue". In the event of rain, the walk will be held in Nisbett Center.

The Fayetteville campus walk will begin at the front building lobby at 3:30 p.m. and will walk to Providence and back to campus. A reception will follow the walk in room FC104.
