Coach Fulmer served as Head Football Coach at Tennessee for 17 years, from 1992 to 2008.  He and his staff built an organization that produced the most successful era in modern Tennessee football history. Coach Fulmer and his staff were tireless recruiters and mentored some of the top names in college and NFL history.

In Coach Fulmer’s last 11 years, he coached the Vols in the SEC Championship game five times, winning twice. He also led the Vols to one of the greatest moments in school history, the 1998 National Championship in the very first BCS title game.

There will be a live auction and all the proceeds from the dinner and auction will help fund the Rocky Top Chamber of Commerce scholarship program.

The Chamber offers scholarships to qualifying Anderson County High School students that attended Lake City Middle School. The number of scholarships offered per year is dependent on the amounts of funds available.
