Within months of coming to Martin, he joined First Baptist Church of Martin, where he was involved with the college and youth programs and a member of the Servant Singers College Choir.
“When I got to Martin, I fell in love with this area and quickly knew that I wanted to stay and make my home here in Weakley County,” says Britt.
While at the university, Britt studied criminal justice and sociology, worked for the housing department as a resident assistant and served on the council of the Baptist Collegiate Ministries.
While serving on the council, Britt met his wife, Cathy and they where married in 2004.
After getting married, he joined Central Baptist Church in Martin where he began working with the youth and was named an Associate Youth Minister.
He also worked at Pathway PTC in Martin with troubled youth, for the Martin Housing Authority’s White House after school program, and later became a Bi-Vocational Youth Minister at Blessed Hope Baptist Church in Troy.
He graduated from UT Martin in 2006 with a B.S. in Criminal Justice. Britt currently works at The Milan Army Ammunition Plant in the quality department. His wife Cathy currently works at home with the children as a homemaker.
He and his wife now reside in Sharon and have two children: Jeremiah 4, Lydia 1, and another on the way.
Britt and his family are members of Grace Community Church of Martin and supporters of local ministries including the Agape House and We Care.
Britt is a Member of the Heritage Foundation, Tennessee Eagle Forum, Weakley County Republican Party (Secretary) and is supportive of the Weakley County Tea Party.
Britt said he will work hard “to make the trustee’s office work better for you!”
