50 Faces of Gratitude: Giselle Palmer

by Giselle Palmer, class of 2003

I’m grateful for Chattanooga State!

50 Faces of Gratitude: Lela Clements

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!
