The Chattanooga Chapter of Executive Women International (EWI) including a current student and one alumna from the association present their annual scholarship donation to benefit a female student with financial need at Chattanooga State Technical Community College.

Nancy Harrison, president of the chapter and current Chattanooga State student, says, “Executive Women International members raise scholarship funds diligently every year with the support from many of Chattanooga's premier businesses. Our scholarship dollars are designated for displaced homemakers or single mothers. Our members applaud the recipients every year at our December meeting. Their stories keep us working year round.”

“I'm proud this scholarship donation opportunity helps struggling students attend my alma mater. My associate degree from Chattanooga State combined with my bachelor degree have made huge differences in my career and saves my company money on advertising with my recent purchase of The Concierge Level, LLC,” says Denise Reed, current EWI publications director and public relations chairperson.

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.”

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.
