Stanton, Tenn. - The Tennessee Department of Tourist Development teamed up with Gov. Haslam's office to launch a social media campaign called Real Tennessee Stories, a collaborative effort extending across state government. The campaign showcases the real relationships citizens build with state employees in providing services for the citizens of the state.
Among the Tourist Development nominees is Allan Sterbinsky, Mayor of Stanton, Tennessee. Mayor Sterbinsky's perseverance and dedication to keep the Stanton Cannery open for people to can goods for winter and to serve as a watering hole for the area helps the community thrive and provides a sense of place. While serving as mayor, he planted The Stanton Orchard and Walking Trail where citizens can pick fruit for free. He also led the city to receive grant funding for new housing for low-income residents and to reduce flooding in town. Sterbinsky also subsidizes The Stanton Clinic, where low-income residents from surrounding counties can receive quality healthcare at low cost. Tennessee Tourism is committed to partnering with passionate leaders like him #serving TN, equipping them with the resources necessary to support their communities.

Real TN Stories is a social media campaign focused on telling the true stories of Tennesseans who provide critical, often overlooked, public services to their fellow citizens. The campaign is fundamentally a collaborative effort, coordinated by the Governor's Office and extending across state government during the week of March 5, 2018. By uniting the diverse work of Tennessee State Government under a common theme, Real TN Stories will shine a bright light on how state government positively impacts the average Tennessean in both ordinary and extraordinary ways every single day by #servingTN.
