Chattanooga State was like a second family to me during my two years as a student and forty-four years as an employee. While a student, faculty and fellow students became friends and supporters and we received an education and graduated with degrees that gave us careers. During my years as an employee, I got married; had children; had grandchildren; and lost parents. My fellow employees were there with friendship and support for these life events as well as for day-to-day work responsibilities. Chattanooga State was a great place to be a student and employee and still is with all the caring faculty and staff that are there to support and assist all along the way. Miss my Chattanooga State family.

I’m grateful for Chattanooga State!
When I walked on campus for my first class, I was filled with excitement and a bit apprehensive. At 22, I was older than most freshmen.

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!

I am grateful to Chattanooga State for August 17, 1992 – my first day of work at Chattanooga State. After many months of filling out forms, sending out resumes, going to interviews, I found my place here — at Chatt State.
Will you help us spread the word? It is time for students to apply for scholarships at Chattanooga State for fall 2016.
We hope you enjoy our 2015 Digital Card from the College Advancement & Public Relations Division at 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!
