Mayor Dana Beaman presented a dedication plaque to Mr. Tennant on August 30, 2017, which is mounted on the right Shell wall.

The Clinton County Arts Council announced that the St. Johns City Commission has voted to name the city park performance shell in honor of Bill Tennant, a longtime supporter and promoter of the arts in Clinton County.

The shell is named the William E. Tennant Performance Shell in recognition of Mr. Tennant’s 34 years as St. Johns High School orchestra director, his chairmanship of committees to construct the shell and renovate the Wilson Center Auditorium, Board Member for the Arts Council and his many other acts of volunteerism on behalf of the arts.
