Dear Brock Scholars/UHON alumni:

This year marks the 40th anniversary of honors education at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. University Scholars started in 1977, and Brock Scholars began in 1979 with an endowment established in honor of William E. Brock Jr. With the help of a National Endowment for the Humanities grant, the program was expanded in 1987 and renamed the University Honors Program (UHON). In 2013, when the UTC Honors College was founded, UHON was again rechristened the Brock Scholars Program to keep it distinct among the other new programs being established in the college. This year, we celebrate 40 transformative years of honors at UTC; we hope all of you – from whatever era you hail – will come celebrate with us!

Friday, October 6, 2017
6:30 p.m.
The Roosevelt Room
at the historic Chattanooga Choo Choo

Good food, good friends, drinks, and dancing will all be part of the evening. Please come and help us celebrate you and the beginning of honors at UTC!

We’d love to have your photos from your time in Brock Scholars/UHON as well; please send those via email to Debbie Bell at

You can RSVP aright here. Come join the reunion; come to the Choo Choo in October!
