Captain Clay Mackey and Engineer David Edge

Boys & Girls Clubs of Middle Tennessee announced Captain Clay Mackey and Engineer David Edge as recipients of the 2nd Annual Ed Moody Award of Excellence. They are being recognized for their efforts in organizing the Franklin Firefighters’ Annual Toy & Clothing Drive. They will accept the award at the 25th Annual Steak & Burger Dinner taking place on May 13, 2014 in Liberty Hall in the Factory at Franklin.

The Ed Moody Award of Excellence recognizes individuals who have made a lasting impact with the Franklin and Fairview Boys & Girls Clubs and in the Williamson County community. Ed Moody known as “Mr. Franklin” was instrumental in the establishment of the Franklin Boys & Girls Club. “Just as Mr. Moody did, this year’s recipients, along with their fellow firefighters, have inspired the community to go above and beyond to ensure hundreds of kids receive their wishes each year” said Denise Carothers, Williamson County area vice president.

Mackey is a 27-year Franklin Fire Department veteran assigned to Station 2 on Murfreesboro Road and he and his wife, Jeannie, live in Franklin. Their daughter, Jordan, is a sophomore at Centennial High School, and their son, Dylan, is a fifth grader at Freedom Intermediate School.

Edge has been with the Franklin Fire Department since 2003 and is assigned to Station 6 on Cool Springs Blvd. He and his wife, Nikki, live in Spring Hill with their four children, David (8), Keegan (7), Slade (5), and Isabella (3).

The 25th Annual Steak & Burger Dinner will be held on Tuesday, May 13, 2014 at Liberty hall in the Factory at Franklin. This year’s event will feature Vanderbilt University Head Football Coach Derek Mason, involvement by Boys & Girls Clubs members, and the presentation of the Ed Moody Award of Excellence.
