Dr. Lindsay Sale-Tinney was an accomplished angler, writer, magazine editor and businesswoman. She attended East Carolina University graduating with a Bachelor of Science Degree and then served an internship at Duke University for Speech and Hearing Pathology. Following her studies there she attended Vanderbilt University earning her Master of Science Degree and a PHD. She worked as a chief liaison for the Office of Child Development under Governor Ray Blanton.
Her entrepreneurial spirit motivated her to join the business world. An accomplished horsewoman and community volunteer, Sale-Tinney was active with Maury Magic Riders and was solely responsible for acquiring a home for the riding therapy organization. She was the recipient of numerous awards, including the Susan B. Anthony Award, Woman of the Year, and Outdoor Photographer of the Year. Lindsay moved to Columbia, Tenn., with her husband Stu in 1988 and started Atlantic Pools. They built their dream home and horse farm known as Southwind Farms.
Lindsay’s greatest loves were her family, showing horses, world travel, enjoying the outdoors and entertaining friends. From the moment Lindsay joined this world her life was a celebration. Her adventurous spirit touched lives not only here but also in her travels abroad. It is in that same spirit that we honor Lindsay with a scholarship in her name.
Students who qualify for the Lindsay Sale-Tinney scholarship will exhibit the same enthusiasm for knowledge and intervention for the disabled that was exemplified by Dr. Sale-Tinney.
