'I am proud to call Tennessee home,' said Guy Gilchrist. 'This state is one of the most beautiful in the nation. The way to keep and preserve Tennessee's natural beauty is by teaching our children the importance of both recycling and not littering. 'Nancy and Sluggo Love Tennessee' does this while also educating children about the wonderful attractions and places that make Tennessee special.

Proceeds from the sale of the book will go to the University of Memphis/Keep Tennessee Beautiful Foundation to establish scholarships for students seeking degrees in the environmental/sustainability field and to provide community environmental education grants in the areas of litter prevention, beautification and recycling.

Under Gilchrist, the 'Nancy' comic strip has seen an increased audience and also been introduced to millions of readers digitally.
Nancy has also become a part of the Nashville scene with celebrities vying for original Nancy art and to be mentioned in the comic strip. Nashville highlighted the comic strip in 2013 with a one-of-a-kind exhibit, 'Nancy Loves Nashville,' at the Nashville International Airport.
