East Thompson Community (ETC) is one of Nashville’s fastest-growing neighborhoods, located just southeast of downtown and a zip away from the airport. Our enthusiastic community is working together to make ETC one of the best places for Nashvillians to live, work, and play. We hope you grow to love this neighborhood as much as we do.

Member Spotlight

Jo’s full name is Hattie Jo Morgan. She’s a native of Sparta, Tennessee and she started her career as an educator teaching business education at White County High School. She moved to Nashville and continued to teach school for 35 years. Among her students were the two youngest children of ETC most famous (former) resident, Earnest Tubb.

 

Jo has lived in East Thompson Community for 56 years and is the founder of our neighborhood group, originally named Glengarry Park Neighborhood Watch Association. Jo organized the group in 1979 and was the president for the majority of the next 35 years. She has a daughter, Abigail, and a grandson, Nathaniel. “Cookie,” an 8-year-old golden lab mix, is her faithful companion.

 

When asked about her favorite memories of living in the neighborhood she shared stories of sliding down the hill on Bowwood in the snow when she and her family would walk to Waffle House as a treat on snow days. She also remembers walking with neighbors to the drive-in theater at Crescent Plaza and sitting together watching movies.
