Tia Barbour Hale Legacy Fund

This Fund will honor the life of Tia Barbour-Hale, a 2006 graduate of Tennessee State University’s Occupational Therapy Program. Professionally, Tia was an occupational therapist dedicated to empowering Nashville’s exceptional-needs students and their families to excel personally and intellectually through nonprofits offering customized educational programs and independently ensuring long-term success in life. Courtney Hale and their daughter, Ever Grey Hale, plan to make grants that support the work of occupational therapists serving special education students in Metro Nashville Public Schools.
