On Tuesday, February 20, Anderson County Commission unanimously approved a resolution of appreciation honoring the Y-12 National Security Complex for its 75-year anniversary. Sponsored by Anderson County Mayor Terry Frank and Commissioners Tim Isbel (chair) and Chuck Fritts, the resolution acknowledges Y-12’s rich history through the Manhattan Project and Cold War eras, as well as the site’s crucial current missions that contribute to our nation’s security.

Accepting the resolution for Y-12 was Site Manager Bill Tindal, who thanked the commissioners for the recognition and encouraged everyone to celebrate Y-12’s anniversary as future events occur.

“We come to work at Y-12 every day knowing that what we do is important for the nation,” said Tindal. “The acknowledgement from the members of this body appreciating our work and missions, is gratifying. Y-12 is proud to be a part of Anderson County history for the past 75 years, and we look forward to continuing that rich tradition for many more.”
