It is up to the individual to acquire the needed skills and education in order to command a higher salary. If you can be replaced by any doofus with a 10th grade education, you won't make much money. Sorry, Doofus, that is how the system works, whether it is in Greeneville, Knoxville, Los Angeles, or Atlanta.

The key to the lock box is given to the educated and skilled in society, not to some dumbass who quits school and has no marketable skills.

Niswanger only really contributes to Greeneville Schools. I know he funded several band programs and etc. but come on look at those compared to GHS whole campus. What a heartwarming man for all his community service and good deeds.... oh wait it's just a way to get a break on taxes.
That is about stupid...... why would he give away $10 million just to keep from sending Obama $3 Million???

I think Mr. Niswonger is an alien shapeshifter! How do I know? I really don't, only educated speculation. You can't watch this video and think that he is human. He is a shapeshifter!

It's interesting to see people rail against someone who started from the ground and built up a successful business then turned back around and gave back to his adopted community very generously. I guess it can only be chalked up to jealousy and envy and ones lack of initiative on thier part.

My comment was facetious. Some of the comments on here are absurd. Wonder what this town would look like had it not been for Scott's involvement. Tusculum College would be a bunch of crumbling buildings, Greeneville High would look much different, many of the non-profits in town would struggle for funding... I could go on.

As I have stated about those who have posted comments about me on this garbage heap, it seems that when one is a professional in this little Peyton Place of a town called Greeneville, Tennessee, as I am, or when one has achieved a position of prominence, like Scott has, the jealousy and envy which creeps into the collective psyches of the rest of you allows you to make baseless accusations and spread false rumors about professionals and/or prominent people. When Scott flew for Magnavox, he had not a penny to his name: I know, because my father represented him in a child support matter, I believe (I could be mistaken) against his first wife. Through hard work, he earned--again, HE EARNED--everything he has. If I were him, as much as people in this town are always saying "gimme" to him, I'd tell everyone to stick it in their ass and go to hell. But Scott being the gentlemen that people who really know him--including some clients of mine--say that he is, gives back to this community, a community where he had no ties until his adult life. Most CEOs and corporate founders do not contribute, in terms of percentage of net worth and/or net income, the amount of money to charity that Scott does each year. So what if he gets some publicity for it? Is that all bad? Do we all not want to be recognized for the good things that we do?
I think that this community ought to thank heaven that we have a citizen among our midst such as Scott Niswonger, a man whom I've never seen personally "put on airs," or think that he can put his pants on two legs at a time. If you think that having money is supposedly a sin, then get the hell out of this country, and go to China, Russia, or, better yet, any country in Central America, South America, or sub-Saharan Africa, and see how you'd like it there. Get off this man's back.

I wouldn't have thought a man of your 'prominence' would be caught dead on this garbage heap. Anyway it's great that you took the time out of your busy schedule to grace us with your intelligence and insight. Mr. N must be proud to have a stalworth such as you to back him up. I must go now for I am late for the Peyton Place picnic.

Everything he said is the truth, so what is your problem with it?
At no time in my post did I disagree with the his statement about Mr. Niswonger. In fact in a previous post I lauded Mr. Niswonger's accomplishments and philanthropy. I did take to task his smugness and especially the 'little Peyton Place' comment seeing as he has feathered his nest nicely off the backs of the folks here. So to answer your question, NO I don't have a problem.

To be quite honest it really does not matter about how much education you have in a small town like this. It's ass kissing and you're last name that get's all the good jobs that come here. That's a fact and if you cannot see that then you are blind and need to go to the eye clinic. Just call it like I see it. It's always the usual suspects.
