UTC Kicks Off United Way 2003 Campaign

With the efforts of faculty, staff and students of The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, the institution will reach its goal of $100,000 dollars to support the annual Greater Chattanooga Area United Way 2003 Campaign.

In 2002, UTC was one of two local institutions to receive the Company of the Year Community Award from the United Way of Greater Chattanooga, because UTC “consistently rises to the occasion, posting one increase after another each campaign year,” according to a United Way publication.

“The UTC contribution directly benefits our campus colleagues and their families as 188 faculty and staff members and their relatives were served last year by United Way agencies, utilizing $129,782.76 in services. Because of its scope and the magnitude of its positive impact, the United Way Campaign is the only external community philanthropic campaign for which all faculty and staff are contacted,” according to Chancellor Bill Stacy.

This year’s campaign team includes Richard Brown, Employee Campaign Manager, with Dr. Marvin Ernst, Chair of the Faculty Senate; Debra Anderson, Chair of Exempt Staff Council; and Julia Cronin, Chair of Employee Relations Council serving as campaign co-chairs.

“Please consider your support of this noble cause and give with your heart to the United Way this year. By contributing to this non-profit organization, you have a unique chance not only to assist individuals in changing their lives, but also to help build a better community for all of us,” Stacy said.
