In Memory of the Greatest Coach ever, Coach Pat Summitt. Donate to the Pat Summitt Foundation Today.

  On behalf of the students, staff, volunteers, and alumni of WUTK, we want to wish the family and friends peace during this time where we mourn the loss of Coach Pat Summitt with you.  Coach Summitt was always very gracious with her time, more than once going out of her way to make herself available to be interviewed live by our students who hosted and produced Rock Solid Sports in the past.  She taught us all life lessons that will never be forgotten, and we all have lost a member of our UT family.  We would like to encourage you to make a donation to the Pat Summitt Foundation, today, in Coach Summitt’s memory.  Help us put the full court press on Alzheimer’s Disease by clicking on to PatSummitt.org, today, and making a Donation.  WUTK thanks you for your help as we honor the memory of the greatest coach, ever, Coach Pat Summitt.  Go Lady Vols!
