The Arts-Based Collaborative on our UTC campus - abc@utc - transforms education in and around the arts - not only in and around the Chattanooga area, but also in and around communities such as Harvest, Alabama.

Harvest is west of Huntsville in Madison County - and that is where you will find Endeavor Elementary School.


Jenny McAllister is the principal there - and Vikki Truesdail is the music teacher at Endeavor, as well as at the Monrovia and Madison Crossroads schools.


Ray is the host and producer of Scenic Roots, weekdays at 3 PM ET on WUTC.
