Executive Women International (EWI) of Chattanooga continued a tradition started in 1996 by donating $12,000 to the Jean Bradford Memorial Endowment Fund at UTC. The endowment was established in memory of Jean Bradford, executive assistant to then UTC Chancellor, Dr. Frederick Obear.  Ms. Bradford, an EWI representative, passed away in 1995. EWI also contributed $6,000 to Chattanooga State. 

EWI of Chattanooga President Ani Yacoubian, of Yacoubian Tailors, said, "EWI representatives feel fortunate to have made a positive impact on their community through enriching the lives of local women."
