A memorial foundation has been formed to honor a fallen member of the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office.

At the age of 21, Corban realized he didn’t need a criminal justice degree to serve. He decided to go into law enforcement. After completing the requirements, he became a corrections officer for the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office.

Corban was in an off-duty, single-vehicle crash the night of October 8th, 2022, and passed away from injuries sustained three weeks before his 22nd birthday.

“Serve Strong” The Corban Scott Goad Memorial Foundation is committed to supporting community first responders. It is their hope to fill in the gaps by providing equipment, training, respite, supplies, or comfort items as needed for first responders so they may better serve their communities.

The foundation also supports those who provide sideline medical attention to athletes in schools.

Initial for stage one of the foundation, efforts will begin with Cumberland, Fentress, and Putnam counties in rural Tennessee, branching out to the greater Upper Cumberland region as the foundation grows in support and opportunity.

The foundation further commits to emphasis, recognition, and focus on emergency medical services personnel who are often less recognized but who “Serve Strong” offering life-saving comfort and support amid tragedy and trauma.

The foundation is also further committed to other good works to serve the community and positively impact our neighbors.
