May Emerging Leader Highlight
Our lunch was kicked off with an energizing and inspiring presentation by Patrick Long, VP of Strategy and Engagement, about United Way's vision and mission for the Greater Chattanooga area.



We then had the pleasure of hearing from River City Company's exciting and dynamic president and CEO, Kim White.  Mrs. White presented on River City's involvement in the incredible growth and development in the downtown area over the past years and relayed some exciting additions coming soon to our downtown area.

Finally, Tyler Yount, Emerging Leaders Chair, wrapped the meeting by speaking to the strides and impact EL's are making across Chattanooga.

I am a performer (actor/singer) at heart, and fell in love with musical theatre when I was 16. Since then, I have continued singing, acting, and dancing, but recently also fell in love with photography. I love meeting new people!
