Mary and Ray Farley stand by the painting donated in memory of their daughter, Anne Farley Hughes.
Anne Farley Hughes, daughter of Mary and Ray Farley, was born and lived in Lewisburg until 1976. She was employed for many years as Smith County Tennessee School's Psychologist. The picture," Tennessee Treasures," painted by Michael Sloan, has been given in her memory by the Smith County Board of Education. It hangs in the Board of Education Building in Carthage. Her husband, Charlie Hughes, with daughters Heather Eskridge and Susan Grace Hughes, has donated a statue to the Smith County School system. Anne had requested the statue, selected by her, be donated for the Smith County School System to place at a location of their choosing. Superintendent Roger Lewis chose the Smith County Middle School because, according to him, "Anne had been a guiding force in the designing and furbishing of every area of this, this county's newest school."
