Ashley Kline Wins Rock City Scholarship

Saturday, December 10, 2011

See Rock City, Inc. honored the 3rd annual recipient of the Martha Bell Miller Scholarship, Ashley Kline.

A retail partner since 2009, Ashley is currently the seasonal stands team leader and is a face painter during Rock City’s Enchanted MAiZE event.

Martha Bell Miller held the role as “Mother Goose” at Rock City Gardens for many years.

A graduate of Notre Dame High School, Ashley is planning to study psychology at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. She attends St. Peter’s Episcopal Church and is involved in the youth group and the college and career programs.

“We are committed to developing our number one resource, our people,” said Andrew Kean, president of See Rock City, Inc.

In 2009, the scholarship committee at Rock City made the decision to name the award after Martha Bell Miller, a lifelong educator and promoter of character and integrity, who dedicated her professional life to education. She worked as Mother Goose from 1983–2005, but her love of Rock City began on opening day in 1932 when she was one of its first visitors.

See Rock City, Inc. is a hospitality and entertainment company that features the world renowned Rock City Gardens high atop Lookout Mountain, just six miles from downtown Chattanooga, Tennessee. Rock City strives to impress upon its partners (employees) the importance of learning, education and individual development and this scholarship is one way to show that commitment to them.
