Over the weekend of Sept. 9-10, volunteers around the region offered their services to the Remote Area Medical (RAM) clinic—including approximately 75 students, staff and faculty from the UTC Social Work, Music Therapy, Modern and Classical Languages and Literatures, Master of Public Health and Nurse Practitioner programs and the UTC RAM Chapter student organization.
The extent and importance of Katherine Goforth Elverd’s accomplishments on and off the UTC campus is being noticed. Chattanooga’s Chatter magazine selected Elverd, professor and director of the music therapy degree program at UTC, to its 2023 ‘20 Under 40’ list.
Since the creation of the Trembling Troubadours, Katherine Goforth Elverd had a goal of having the group perform the national anthem before a Chattanooga Lookouts minor league baseball game. On July 24, that goal was realized.
