2019 Local Grand Marshall

Jeff Pennington

A familiar voice from WZYX radio station, Jeff Pennington has covered the news here in Franklin County for 38 years!  He received his degree in broadcasting from Middle Tennessee State University in 1983 and at one time was an owner of WZYX.  Jeff’s father was a pastor with the Methodist Church for 50 years and so the family moved around quite a bit.  Both of Jeff’s parents are now deceased and Jeff has one sister, Jane Lafevers.  Jeff has two children, Jessica and Joshua and has two grandchildren, Landon and Chloe that he loves to spend time with. 

Jeff has been a member of Cowan Commercial Club for 34 years and held the office of president at one time.  Jeff is a member of “Christmas from Landyn and Levi Toy Drive” and is always willing to assist any organization, his neighbors and anyone who needs a helping hand.

The Cowan Christmas Parade Committee is proud to announce Jeff Pennington as our local Grand Marshal for the 55th Annual Cowan Christmas Parade.  Thank you, Jeff, for many years of service to our community!
