Of Tennessee’s five postsecondary education programs for students with intellectual disabilities, Union University’s EDGE Program is the only residential option, and for four years they’ve been preparing those with special needs and disabilities for the workforce. Today on our podcast, Kevin Adelsberger interviews Assistant Director Andrew Blackard about this unique program and how it’s changing our community for the better.

Kevin Adelsberger and his wife Renae moved to Jackson for college (proud Union alumni) and have stayed ever since. Jackson has since taken hold of Kevin’s heart, and he looks forward to continuing to grow with the city. Kevin opened Adelsberger Marketing in 2014 and saw working with Our Jackson Home as a way that he could serve the city he loves. Kevin and Renae are members of First Baptist Church and volunteer with the youth group there and with Madison County CASA.
