The Association of Tennessee Valley Governments will soon be saying goodbye to long time ATVG Program Director Deborah Grubbs of Clarksville, TN. Deborah has served ATVG for 17 years and will be greatly missed. Mike Arms, ATVG Executive Director said, “Grubbs has been the smiling face members see at each meeting and has worked hard behind the scenes with various administrative duties from meeting agenda’s, keeping the minutes, to scheduling venue space for the association. It has been a pleasure to work with Deborah over the years. She and Geno have become such close friends.” Grubbs said she has enjoyed her time with the group and has made life long friendships who will always remain close. Grubbs is looking forward to spending more time with her retired police officer husband, Geno, and her mother.
