The new mailing address for Dobyns-Bennett is 1 Tribe Way, Kingsport, TN 37664, effective immediately.
“I wish I could say this was my idea,” said Dobyns-Bennett Principal Dr. Chris Hampton. “However, it was the idea of D-B Alum and current city manager, Jeff Fleming. Jeff and our alumni absolutely love this school and this is an excellent play on the #OneTribe, #OneKingsport theme that is making its way through our city and school-district.”
Dobyns-Bennett is the only address on the private Legion Drive. The new street sign has already been installed.
