Newbern, Tennessee is where the pride of the south runs deep. Things such as family values, outdoors, wildlife, and so much more is a big part of being apart of this little town. We try to learn from the mistakes in history to make this place better than the past. I see this place teaching the young students to strive to do great things. There is a lot more to this world than this small town, but where you come from teaches you things.

The crime is only bad in one part of Dyersburg. Police are typically in control, although they have bad manners sometimes.
Dyersburg is an average sized town. Newbern is smaller, but getting better.
