The Chattanooga Chapter of Executive Women International (EWI) has presented its annual scholarship to benefit a female student with financial need at Chattanooga State Technical Community College.

Karen J. Hannifin, president of the chapter, said, "Executive Women International members from some of Chattanooga's premier businesses are motivated every year to see the positive changes that take place in our scholarship recipients. Our scholarship dollars are designated for displaced homemakers or single women with children returning to start or complete a degree. It's great to know we are making a positive difference."

Dr. Jim Catanzaro, president of the college, said, "Chattanooga State recognizes how very important the support of distinguished groups such as Executive Women International is to ensuring that deserving students receive their education. This gift truly will transform someone's life."

Executive Women International was established in California in 1938 when Lucille Johnson Perkins recognized the importance and potential of an association of key women working with their executives to promote their firms and improve their community.

The Chattanooga EWI chapter was chartered in May 1987. The first scholarship at Chattanooga State was awarded in 1997 and continues through the efforts of the members of Executive Women International. The local EWI chapter has more information about its scholarship programs at ewichattanooga.org.

Over 3,000 companies and 3,500 representatives are members of EWI today in 75 chapters located in major cities in the United States, Canada, and Europe. EWI is the premier organization for networking and leadership development for today's business professionals and their firms.
