The Margaret N. Perry Children’s Center on UT Martin’s main campus celebrated 25 years in its current location with a reception April 30. The center moved into the current building on Pat Head Summitt Drive in 1993 and was named for Dr. Margaret Perry, UT Martin’s sixth chancellor, in 1998. Perry (above) was present at the reception and spoke following comments from Chancellor Keith Carver. Leanne Snider, longtime director of the children’s center, also spoke about the impact the center has had on generations of Martin residents. She says 1,279 children have been enrolled at the current location.
