Two members of Executive Women International were awarded educational scholarships for their aggressive recruiting and leadership roles within EWI.

Nancy Harrison, legal assistant in the Law Offices of Lloyd Stanley, was awarded a $3000 Fellows scholarship for her extensive leadership and philanthropy efforts within the organization over the last three years. Ms. Harrison is the Director-at-Large and Board Advisor for the Chattanooga Chapter of EWI and also serves as the Corporate Membership Advisor to the Knoxville Chapter. She plans to use her scholarship to complete her paralegal studies at Chattanooga State Technical Community College, where she currently attends.

Carolyn Stringer was also awarded a Fellows scholarship for $1500. In addition to being Chattanooga's only EWI Life Member, Ms. Stringer was also recognized at the 61st Leadership Conference and Annual Meeting for her aggressive local recruiting. Ms. Stringer recruited eight new member firms to the organization in an eight-month time period, more than any of the other 75 EWI chapters.

"These awards are a wonderful opportunity for active EWI representatives to enhance their personal and professional development," said Tanya English, president of the Chattanooga Chapter of EWI and paralegal for Miller & Martin, PLLC. According to English, EWI takes great pride in their ability to provide exceptional support to all of their representatives.

EWI's mission is to promote member firms, provide professional and personal development for the representatives, and support philanthropic activity in the community. The Chattanooga chapter provides scholarships for underprivileged women at Chattanooga State Technical Community College and through an endowed scholarship at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.
