Clare Saum Returns to Discovery Park of America as Director of Marketing
Union City, Tenn. – Discovery Park of America has announced Clare Saum, a former intern with the organization, has joined the leadership team as director of marketing. She is managing marketing, public relations and promotions for the museum and heritage park.
Saum has returned to West Tennessee after living in Huntsville, Ala., for three years. While in Huntsville, she was the marketing and events coordinator for Kids to Love, a non-profit serving children living in foster care.
“Clare returns to Discovery Park with eight years of marketing and advertising experience working in a variety of industries,” said Scott Williams, Discovery Park’s president and CEO. “I’m thrilled she is able to bring that experience back home, and she is already making a big contribution here at Discovery Park.”
Saum has a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with a major in marketing from University of Tennessee at Martin. It was while attending UT Martin that she worked as a marketing intern at Discovery Park. She has also worked in media advertising at WZDX in Huntsville and WPSD in Paducah, Ky.
As an active member of the Rotary Club of Madison in Alabama, Saum was recently named chair-elect and is eager to get involved with local civic clubs now that she has returned to Northwest Tennessee.
“I am so excited to be returning home to Obion County,” said Saum. “And since I grew up on a fifth-generation family farm, I am especially excited about the new agriculture exhibit and the importance Discovery Park places on innovation.”
