Sherry Hutchinson has been with the State of Tennessee for over 15 years and currently serves as Manager of the Mitchellville Welcome Center for the Department of Tourist Development. Sherry is known for her willingness to help staff and guests regardless of the circumstances. A little over a year ago, an elderly visitor was traveling through Tennessee from Minnesota to Florida. She had fallen and her clothes were dirty and torn. Fairly disheveled and somewhat shaken, she entered the Welcome Center where Sherry immediately came to her aid. The visitor, traveling alone, arrived in Florida a couple of days later but wrote back to the Department to express her sincere appreciation of Sherry’s attention to her and stating how amazed she was at being the recipient of such kindness by a stranger. This is just one of the examples of how Sherry goes above and beyond to provide incredible customer service to our guests.
