Volunteer State Community College student Teresa Epley has been named the recipient of the Women's Opportunity Award from the Music City International Soroptomist Club. The Soroptomists will present a $300 check to Epley at their fundraiser to be held on April 20 at Trevecca University in Nashville.

Epley was recommended for the award by George Wilson, assistant professor of logistics and supply chain management at Vol State. Epley is assisting Wilson with developing multi-media, online course content for a course in transportation, which was Epley's background, having 20 years in household goods and relocations before returning to school. Currently, she is working with Dr. Rick Parrent, director of career placement, cooperative education and service learning at Vol State, in a cooperative effort with the Greater Nashville Metro Planning Organization. Epley also received a scholarship from Tennessee Consortium for International Studies to study in Greece last summer. Epley will continue her international studies as an ambassador scholarship student this year in Spain. Epley serves on the logistics advisory board for Vol State and on the international committee. She was named to the Fall 2009 Dean's List.

Residing in Mt. Juliet, Epley is the mother of three. She has decided to continue her education in the business field at Middle Tennessee State University.
