The city of Morristown and the Jolley Family were awarded the East Tennessee Development District’s (ETDD) Project of the Year Award at the district’s annual awards breakfast for the new Jolley Park. The inclusive playground park was the vision of the Jolley family, who worked with teachers and parents to ensure the park project catered to all children. The park was named after the late Gene Jolley and when gifted to the city of Morristown, the $3 million facility became the largest single gift to the city in its history.
