When it comes to working with young athletes, Chad Rowland finds purpose in helping young men achieve their full potential. Chad is another one of the neighbors at Garland Farm Estates and finds meaning on the ball field.
“In my free time, I enjoy working as a coach for East Tennessee Crusader’s baseball. It’s an organization serving boys from 8 to 16 years old and with a mission of developing Christ-centered young men through the game of baseball.”
Chad talks about his service to the community on ball fields all across East Tennessee, but you’re likely to find plenty of games going on in the neighborhood in Chad’s backyard too.
“I moved to Garland Farms about 10 years ago, and one of the things that attracted me to the neighborhood was the people. There are folks of all ages here and lots of kids too. Just on our block alone, there are 25 to 30 kids and ball games all the time. My kids have plenty of friends to play and grow up with right here at home.”
It means a lot to Chad that his kids have a safe and fun place to play sports and hang out near the clubhouse, and another reason he likes living here are the schools nearby.
Describing the area, he continues, ” East Tennessee has some of the best schools in the state. Whether you looking for a public or private institution, my kids have had the best of both, and the schools around here are second to none.”
Chad works with area hospitals, and when he moved to the Tri-Cities, he liked the location of Garland Farms. “We looked at neighborhoods all over the Tri-Cities, but this location gives you access to all the cities. Major hospitals are only 15 to 20 minutes in each location, and that really helps with my work with great access to the best in the region.”
You can tell Chad loves working with his team. Whether it’s on the job or on the field, he’s always helping everyone with his passion for faith and sport, and we couldn’t be more proud to share his story.
Come visit with us soon at Garland Farms and be sure to look for kids on the playground or playing a game. After all, that’s what a neighborhood should be.
