Remembering Paul M. Starnes

IMG_2986 2Longtime State Representative Paul Starnes died January 9, 2015.

John Germ, a Founding Chattanooga State Foundation Board member who served with Mr. Starnes on the Foundation Board, had this to say about him:

“Paul Starnes was a strong advocate for Chattanooga State. His leadership led to the creation of many programs and building projects that enhance the community and allow students to earn a valuable education. He was a strong supporter of the foundation and played an active roll in selecting leadership for the college. His tenure in the legislature led to many improvements in Hamilton County. Chattanooga State has lost a tremendous supporter and educational leader.”

The Chattanooga State Student Center is named in his honor. Read more about him here.
