• Linkup Partners, a fellowship mentoring club at Farragut Middle School, is sponsoring a “Liberty Chain Challenge” to raise money for 278th soldiers in Iraq and for a tsunami relief fund. The challenge begins Monday, Jan. 20, and club members are making color-coded links from construction paper. The color coding matches the student groups (pods) at the school. Students may purchase colored links for a quarter. The links will be stapled together to create the liberty chains. The pod with thelongest liberty chain will receive prizes.

• The following Farragut residents were recently named to the King College’s Dean’s List in Bristol, Tenn; Evan Taylor Giordano, Benjamin Taylor Haney and Diana Joy Summmers. Angela Dea Montreuil was named to the President’s List.
