Real Talk at Vine Middle

Vine Middle's Real Talk Opens Doors

Vine Middle School's Clarence Swearengen started Real Talk as a before school program for Vine's mostly minority male students featuring speakers with recognizable names. This year, Real Talk received Tennessee Community Crime Reduction Program (TCCRP) funding through the City of Knoxville to expand the program to include field trips to industry and institutions of higher learning. Students will not only hear about their opportunities but be able to touch and view those options firsthand! 

Real Talk was recently featured on Knoxville's Local 8 WATE.
