Two hundred University supporters gathered at the Chattanoogan Hotel to celebrate the Chattanooga launch of the Campaign for Tennessee.
Dressed as a train conductor, UTC alumnus Josh Ruben served as a unique emcee, moving the crowd through the institution’s past, present and future. Chancellor Roger Brown thanked the Campaign volunteer leadership team of Lewie Card, Fred Decosimo, Ruth Holmberg, Brenda Lawson and Scott L. Probasco.
The University has raised $43 million dollars toward the goal of $65 million.

University Advancement, and Lewie Card participate in a skit to
entertain and educate the crowd about the UTC Capital Campaign.
