As we bid farewell to a remarkable year, Oversite takes immense pride in celebrating dozens of accomplishments and milestones that have defined our journey in 2023. From successfully executing a range of projects that have set new industry benchmarks, to fostering innovation and growth within our team, it has undeniably been a year of achievement and progress.
Beyond the professional realm, our commitment to making a positive impact on the community has been an integral part of Oversite. This year, we extended our efforts beyond the boardroom and ventured into the heart of our local community, Franklin. While our projects took shape in bricks and mortar, our commitment to giving back found its expression in the form of meaningful contributions to numerous local non-profits. We firmly believe that true success is measured not solely in terms of business milestones but also by the positive influence we can impart on the community that surrounds us.
Join us as we reflect on the highlights of an extraordinary year, where professional success and community engagement seamlessly intertwine to shape a narrative of accomplishment, growth, and giving back.
We express our gratitude for the privilege of working with GraceWorks Ministries during Q1, a faith-based nonprofit organization dedicated to providing food, shelter, and support for individuals in need in Williamson County. Our Marketing and Business Development Director, Mary Michael Cross, actively served on the Young Professionals Committee in 2023.
We are pleased to share our partnership with Leadership Franklin, where we contributed to the impactful Jimmy Gentry Memorial Statue project during Q2 through donations. This statue, dedicated to the late community leader and veteran Jimmy Gentry, stands as a tribute to WWII veterans who made the ultimate sacrifice. Additionally, Mary Michael is currently enrolled in the 2023-2024 Leadership Franklin class.
In the aftermath of the devastating Middle Tennessee tornadoes in December, our Q4 donations were directed towards the Churches of Christ Disaster Relief Effort, Inc., aiming to provide crucial support to those affected by the severe weather conditions.
Mary Michael proudly aligns with the values of 100 Women Who Care: Williamson County, a group of dedicated women committed to supporting the local community through charitable endeavors. Beyond her involvement in this impactful organization, Mary Michael, alongside her husband Will Cross, who serves as an Oversite Project Manager, assumed the role of late party chairs at the 50th Annual Heritage Ball hosted by the Heritage Foundation of Williamson County. This distinguished event not only commemorates the exceptional preservation and dissemination of regional and local history but also serves as a vital fundraiser for community traditions, cultural heritage, research, advocacy, education, preservation, and community engagement.

Mary Michael also contributes as a Board Intern to this organization, which empowers young people to reach their full potential through innovative after-school programs, fostering their development as productive, caring, and responsible citizens.
Mary Michael contributed to the Project Wilco Campaign Committee for Williamson, Inc. This organization seamlessly integrates the Chamber of Commerce and Economic Development, offering unparalleled opportunities for education, leadership development, relationship-building, and up-to-date information about conducting business in one of the nation's fastest-growing counties – Williamson County. In addition to her impactful involvement in the committee, Mary Michael also serves as a Chamber Ambassador for Williamson County.
