Meet Madison County CASA
Meet Chef Tanner Wade
Born and raised in Jackson, Tanner Wade was the guy who cooked for all of his friends in his teenage years. At 16, Tanner began working as a busboy at Outback - where he often got in trouble for hanging out on the line - so they finally moved him to the kitchen!
After graduating from Northside High School May of 2004, Tanner then graduated from Sullivan University in Louisville, KY with his Associates of Science in Culinary Arts in 2006.
After working in multiple restaurants and catering companies San Antonio, TX, Tanner returned to Jackson to create a menu for the Furtle Turtle before working at Coyote Blues.
Tanner transferred to the Jackson Country Club in 2011 when Coyote Blues took over the food and beverage operations for the JCC. In 2016, the Jackson Country Club brought the food and beverage services back in house and Tanner was retained as the manager of operations where he remains today. In 2021, Tanner took his talents to Sysco to help provide food to the many restaurants in West Tennessee.
Over the last year and a half Madison County CASA has provided approximately 120 abused andneglected children in Madison County with specially trained Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASAs)who advocate for the children’s best interests and for safe permanent homes for the children wherethey will thrive. Madison County CASA, the local program for the National CASA/GAL Association for Children, has been training community volunteers as advocates for children since 1996.
Research shows that children with CASAs are more likely to graduate from high school, spendless time in foster care, and are less likely to re-enter foster care once they exit the system. Further research shows that one of the key determinants of a child’s resiliency is the presence of a supportive adult like our CASA volunteers. CASA volunteers bring hope and stability to children’s lives as well as tolay the foundation for stronger futures for the children.
