Event Honoring Congressman Ed Jones

September 16th, 2013 - By Steve James

Congressional pages and staff members of the late Tennessee U.S. Rep. Ed Jones are invited to an event honoring the longtime congressman Oct. 4 at the University of Tennessee at Martin. Jones will be honored by the university for his induction in 2011 as only the 13th member of the Tennessee Agricultural Hall of Fame.

A reception is set for 5 p.m. in the Paul Meek Library where a replica of the congressman’s office is maintained and his congressional papers are held. A dinner and program will follow in the Duncan Ballroom of the Boling University Center. Retired U.S. Rep. John Tanner, who succeeded Jones, is the keynote speaker. Pages and other staff members who worked with Jones are encouraged to register and attend the event.

The event is open to the public at a cost of $25 per person. The reservation deadline is Sept. 27. Donations can also be made to the Ed Jones Gift Fund, which supports the university’s Ed and Llew Jones Distinguished Lecture Series.

Registrations and donations can be made through the UT Martin Office of Development, 329 Hall-Moody Administration Building, Martin, TN 38238, or call 731-881-7620. Gifts to the lecture series fund can also be made online at www.utmforever.com/jones.
