Paul James, Executive Director, received the Bruce McCarty Community Impact Award last night at the Fall Gala Celebration hosted by the East Tennessee Community Design Center. The award was presented to Paul, as well as Randy and Jenny Boyd and Carol Evans, in tribute to the life and work of the late Bruce McCarty who initiated the work of the Design Center in 1970.

Since Paul joined Ijams in 2000, the park has grown from 80 to 300 acres and now includes over 12 miles of multi-use trails. The Visitor Center, which opened in 1997, was designed by Bruce McCarty.
