The City of Brentwood has named Deanna Lambert as its new Community Relations Director. She replaces Linda Lynch who retired at the end of August after serving in the same position for 29 years.

She was previously a television news reporter, anchor and producer in North Carolina, Louisiana, Florida, and Nashville.

Lambert won a regional Emmy for her reporting during a 50-car pileup in Middle Tennessee in 2011.

Lambert most recently worked for The Tennessee Department of Transportation as a spokesperson and videographer.

Lambert will serve as the city’s primary media contact.

Fitness Competition Raises $16,000 
For Special Needs Children

“High Reps for High Hopes,” a carnival-style fitness competition for children with special needs, raised more than $16,000 for the High Hopes Development Center. The event was co-hosted by Resilient Health & Performance of Brentwood and CrossFit Cool Springs.

Representatives of Resilient Health and CrossFit, along with local high school athletes, united to host this one-of-a-kind charity competition that combined the heart-health benefits of fitness with the heart-health benefits of giving back to the community.

Contestants competed in various CrossFit competitions such as max pull-ups or a mini-triathlon that featured turns on a stationary bike, skier, and rower.

High Hopes Development Center is a local non-profit that offers an inclusive preschool environment for children with and without special needs, as well as an on-site pediatric therapy clinic providing physical, occupational, speech and feeding therapies to children from birth to age 21.
