Alexander Thompson Arnold CPAs has taken a bold stand for education in Dyer County by making a $25,000 gift to the McIver’s Grant Public Library Renovation Project.
The firm has pledged $5,000 each year for five years to help with the renovation of the library’s new building. Not only does the gift support literacy in the community, it also supports the efforts to keep Downtown Dyersburg beautiful and enables Dyer County to be competitive in recruiting more jobs to the area.
“ATA believes that success in life begins with a foundation strong in reading and math skills, and the public library plays a critical role in making this a reality in our community,” said Steve Carmichael, ATA’s Senior Partner in Dyersburg. “With our deep commitment and this investment, we are helping Dyer County residents have access to learning and enrichment tools for generations to come. We are proud to make this investment in the future of our community.
In 1946, the firm was founded in Dyersburg by William P. Alexander, Jr. when he returned from World War II. Shortly after opening his practice, the local library moved to the Dyersburg Women’s Club on the corner of Masonic and Mill streets, only a block from ATA’s office at 185 North Church Street. Through the years, Alexander Thompson Arnold CPAs has grown to become the sixth largest accounting firm in Tennessee, and the McIver’s Grant Public Library has grown into a hub for information.
You can help the library to provide services to the residents of the West Tennessee area and invest in Dyer County’s future. Mail your donation to McIver’s Grant Public Library, P O Box 1077, Dyersburg, TN 38025.
