As a member of the Arnold Community Council (ACC), Dr. Lynn Sebourn attended discussions with Air Force Chief of Staff General CQ Brown, Jr., addressing vital matters concerning the renowned Arnold Engineering Development Complex (AEDC) at Arnold AFB. Founded in 2000, the ACC represents 13 Tennessee and Alabama counties. As the world's largest and most advanced aerospace testing complex, AEDC is the epicenter of hypersonic testing in the United States. This meeting holds significant implications for future advancements. With over 350 diverse memberships, including individuals, businesses, and local governments, the ACC's annual trip to Washington, DC, strengthens ties with top DOD and elected officials. Dr. Sebourn is an aerospace engineer and serves as a Coffee County Commissioner as well as the Chairman of the Tullahoma Area Economic Development Corporation. In recognition of their unwavering commitment, Tullahoma was honored as a 'Great American Defense Community' by the Association of Defense Communities in 2022 for their support of Arnold AFB, TN.
