NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The state of Tennessee is honoring Lady Volunteers Head Coach Emeritus Pat Summitt by dedicating the new edition of the Tennessee Blue Book to her.
The Blue Book is the Tennessee’s definitive manual on state government. It includes information about Tennessee history and the three branches of state government and biographies of all members of the Tennessee General Assembly.
The Blue Book is published every two years by the secretary of state’s office, and the new edition will be available soon.
Secretary of State Tre Hargett said in a news release that Summitt has inspired countless Tennesseans, first as a basketball coach and more recently as an advocate for Alzheimer’s research.
