What is your favorite thing about Blount County? The natural beauty, the growing industry, the dedicated public servants, or the incredible education and healthcare systems available? Discover Blount was launched in 2017 to share all these things with new and lifelong Blount County residents.
In collaboration with community partners, Discover Blount is an introduction to Blount County showcasing our area. The program introduces participants to resources in our county and identifies opportunities to become more involved. The Discover Blount program consists of six, 5 hour Discover Days with one social and one service opportunity.
Discover Blount is open to anyone who works or lives in Blount County. Forty participants will be accepted on a first come-first serve basis. While anyone is welcome to participate, the program is aimed at emerging leaders, those new to Blount County, and anyone wanting to become more involved in the community.
All Discover Days will begin and end on the Maryville College campus unless otherwise noted. A tour bus will provide transportation during the Class Day.
