Leadership Chattanooga Alumni introduce Baumgardner Leadership Award

Julie Baumgardner, president and CEO of First Things First, is the first recipient of an award named in her honor.

The Leadership Chattanooga Alumni Association presented the inaugural Julie Baumgardner Leadership Award to Baumgardner at the Leadership Luncheon honoring the 2016-17 Leadership Chattanooga class.

Baumgardner has chaired Leadership Chattanooga’s curriculum committee for more than 15 years, impacting more than 500 Leadership Chattanooga participants.

“Many graduates have served on the committee over the years, and Julie challenges us to take things to the next level with more leadership skills training and a focus on today’s hot topics,” said Diane Parks, director of leadership and community development at First Things First.

The Leadership Chattanooga Alumni Association will present the Julie Baumgardner Leadership Award annually to an individual or organization with a record of leadership and service in the community and a history of making contributions to Leadership Chattanooga.
