Jane Henegar and Betsy Brown will speak at the ElderScholars meeting on Tuesday, Nov. 12, in the Lookout Mountain Room of the University Center. Ms. Henegar and Ms. Brown established Telling Treasures in the spring of 2013, with "a passion for encouraging individuals and families to tell the stories that shaped them, affirm the values that grew from the stories, and pass the baton to the next generation." Their goal is to encourage others to pass on those life-shaping stories.
Ms. Henegar is a teacher and lifelong learner. She recently retired from Girls Preparatory School where she taught Old and New Testament for 30 years, receiving the Distinguished Teacher award in 1991. For 41 years Ms. Henegar has written a weekly food column, Fare Exchange, currently in the Chattanooga Times Free Press. In 2012 her first book, Praying Life, a collection of prayers, was published.

In this role she develops relationships and works with families and their advisors to develop a range of trust services and legacy plans. Prior to joining Cumberland Trust, Ms. Brown was a vice president in the Atlanta office of JPMorgan Private Bank, serving as a relationship manager for many of the largest and most complex clients serviced throughout the southeast.
