A team of Bass, Berry & Sims attorneys from the Knoxville office served as bond counsel to Emerald Academy in connection with a tax exempt bond issue. Emerald Academy, Knox County’s only charter school, is a nonprofit K-8 school that partners with families to prepare urban scholars for the college of their choice and community leadership. The bond issue financed the acquisition and build-out of classrooms and educational facilities for the school.

Jay Moneyhun noted, “Emerald Academy is bringing great educational opportunities to students in historically underestimated communities and we were honored to contribute to strengthening that mission.”
