More Stations of Imagination Fun - 2017 SOI Schedule at Fall FunFest Cookeville

Last Updated by Kate Spears on

On this week’s WCTE Get Ready To Learn Radio show, host and Ready To Learn project manager takes a trip down memory lane with WCTE’s Education Associate Reggie Brown. Brown has filled the role of project manager for Stations Of Imaginations for the past 22 years.

This year, Reggie has taken an active role mentoring the SOI team at WCTE. On the show Putman and Brown reminisce about their favorite SOI memories. For Putman, it was the year that Jay-Jay the Jet Plane came to WCTE. Brown shared that her favorite memory was last year when she was able to introduce her new grandson to this free family event.

Brown says that seeing this event through the eyes of her grandson reminded her just how important WCTE’s SOI is to young families across the Upper Cumberland.

Check out all the great events happening on the Fall FunFest main stage during the day when it is hosted by WCTE’s Cindy Putman. During that time block, Putman will be joined by talented students and groups from the PCSS school system, a local dance troupe, a gymnastics group and a theatre group.
