UTC students will have the opportunity to live and work with the Eastern Band Cherokee in the Cherokee community May 5 – 23, 2014.
“In May 2013 we made an agreement, a tribal council resolution, with the Eastern Cherokee Band, recognizing a partnership between the Military Science Department at UTC and the Eastern Band for the purposes of scholarship, cultural exchange, and cultural consciousness,” says Major Robert Ricks.
UTC graduates Eli Fowler and Brandon Taylor recently hiked the grueling 2,200 miles of the Appalachian Trail. For six months, these alumni trekked across thirteen states, from Springer Mountain, Georgia, to Mt. Katahdin, Maine. Read about their journey in the December 2013 issue of Get Out Chattanooga magazine.
