As the sun sets on another Protégé Chattanooga class, a bright future emerges for Chattanooga’s young leaders.
Over a nine-month period, Protégé Chattanooga participants connected with their peers and area business and community leaders to develop their business and civic-engagement potential, as well as build enduring personal and professional connections.
The sessions culminated in a class graduation at Finley Stadium on May 11.
This year, 23 protégés between the ages of 21 and 40 were recognized for their desire, motivation and commitment to the successful completion of this program.
Watch a recap of their experience, below.
