Newsmakers: Summerlin receives Leadership Award

The Leadership Chattanooga Alumni Association has presented its 2019 Julie Baumgardner Leadership Award to Scottie Goodman Summerlin for her service in education and support of Leadership Chattanooga.

A broadcaster and consultant, Summerlin has sat on the boards of several local Parent teacher Associations and served as communications vice president for the Hamilton County PTA and communications council chair for the Tennessee PTA. She volunteers as a communications consultant for Signal Mountain Middle/High School and the Mountain Education Foundation.

Outside of education, Summerlin has served on the boards of Chattanooga Room in the Inn, the American Lung Association and Youth Leadership Chattanooga. She has assisted Leadership Chattanooga in coordinating projects and identifying candidates for the program for several years.

Summerlin recently received the Elise Chapin Moon Sustainer of the Year award from the Junior League of Chattanooga and is a Chattanooga Woman of Distinction honoree.
