Scholarship to CGLA Kaitlin Newton
Executive Women International (EWI) of Chattanooga donated $1,000 to Chattanooga Girls Leadership Academy graduate Kaitlin Newton. Ms. Newton will continue her education this fall at Chattanooga State. 

Since chartering in 1987, EWI of Chattanooga has contributed more than $170,000 in scholarships at area schools. This is the first time a high school student has been a recipient; historically the scholarships have been awarded to women already attending college. EWI of Chattanooga President Ani Yacoubian, of Yacoubian Tailors, says, "EWI representatives know the funds they donate make a real difference in the lives of local women; that's important to us. We recognize the good work CGLA is doing for our youth and we wish Kaitlin all the best. We're already planning our December meeting when Kaitlin will join us to celebrate her progress at Chattanooga State."
