We are proud to have Coach Brittney Ezell as the Grand Marshal of our 2018 Buddy Walk®. Coach Ezell enters her fifth year as head coach of the Buccaneer women’s basketball program. Ezell is a popular public speaker for many area businesses, fundraising, and organizations in the Tri-Cities. She is also a member of the ETSU Standing Women’s Committee and a moderator for ETSU Dinners of Distinction. We are proud to have her join us in our most important and most popular event of the year.
