After serving in the classroom and in the Chattanooga community for more than three decades, Dr. Roger Thompson has earned the University of Tennessee Alumni Association Public Service Award. He works with local government to address crime problems and continues to work on behalf of the homeless population.
When Dr. Roger Thompson recently arranged for UTC resident assistants to visit the Chattanooga Community Kitchen, he was fairly sure it was the first time they had ever seen the site. He wanted the student housing employees to understand how the homeless are served at the Community Kitchen so that they could find a way for more UTC students to become involved.
Dr. Roger Thompson, UTC Associate Professor of Criminal Justice, has been appointed to a three-year term to the Office of Multicultural Affairs Advisory Board by Chattanooga Mayor Ron Littlefield.
