50 Faces of Gratitude: Floyd Eaves

by Floyd Eaves, retired founding faculty

I am grateful to Chattanooga State because it afforded me an opportunity to work at the college level and be a professor of students studying for a degree in higher education. This level of teaching and administration allowed me to make a difference for students preparing for their life’s work.  It was a pleasure working with ALL of the presidents from 1966 to 1996 when I retired. Working at Chattanooga State gave me a chance to help grow Chattanooga State into the prestigious institution that it is today.
