I am grateful to Chattanooga State because…

  2. The relationship with the institution is long lasting
  3. It has equipped and continues to equip students for valuable job markets
  4. It competes on “leading-edge technology”

by Lela Clements, Radiation Therapy student

I am grateful to Chattanooga State for accepting me into the Radiation Therapy program. What seemed like such an intangible dream last year is now a reality. My husband pushed me to pursue my dream of Radiation Therapy after X-Ray school. It meant moving two states away and taking a huge risk, but after we and our two kids moved here and school started, I couldn’t imagine doing anything else. Thanks again, Chattanooga State!

by Maria Spear, Chattanooga State faculty

I am grateful to Chatt State because it gives me the opportunity to practice my profession in a welcoming and engaging atmosphere. I feel fortunate to be surrounded by talented colleagues who encourage me, and by dedicated students who inspire me. I moved here two years ago from the West Coast because I was drawn to this vibrant and friendly community, and I am reminded every day I made the right choice!

I am grateful to Chattanooga State, because they gave me the courage and support to graduate high school with my associate degree. Now in my fourth year as a faculty member I have the greatest opportunity to give back the same encouragement that helped me to succeed so many years ago.
