Local Coach Nominated For "Peace" Award
Tennessee Tech basketball coach Mike Sutton was one of six coaches nominated this year for the 2010 United Nations NGO Positive Peace Awards. Officials say this award, viewed as a 21st century peace prize, honors and recognizes individuals, businesses, athletes, coaches, sports teams, entertainers and schools around the world for their positive contributions. Nominations were made by non-profit organizations that have benefitted from the unselfish financial and endorsement involvement of coaches around the world. Will Partin of G.O. Ministries nominated Sutton following Tech's participation in a pre-season foreign goodwill tour in the Dominican Republic.
