Chuck Latham, formerly from Hardeman County, has established the Huey P. Mott Scholarship at the University of Tennessee at Martin in honor of his former agriculture teacher at Middleton High School. Latham, now living in Centennial, Colorado, is president and CEO of Chuck Latham Associates Inc., which specializes in sales and marketing for pet-related brands.
Latham graduated from UT Martin in 1978 with a Bachelor of Science degree in agriculture, and the scholarship is designated for a Hardeman County High School student who attends UT Martin to major in an agriculture-related field. Majors qualifying for this scholarship include general agriculture, agricultural business and natural resources management, among others.
Mott, for whom the award is named, grew up on a family farm and graduated from college in 1960. He served in the Army National Guard before ultimately beginning a teaching career in Hardeman County that would span more than three decades.
