EPB has signed on as a major sponsor of Chattanooga State athletics.

 

Chattanooga State officials said, "With a new attitude and direction on the campus at Chattanooga State Community College when it comes to athletics, student athletes are not only bringing home winning trophies, but have excellent grades to match their sporting proficiency.

 

"For example, the Lady Tigers Softball team earned the Region TCCAA Tournament title earlier this year for the 19th time in 22 seasons and placed third in the NJCAA Division 1 Tournament in Utah in May. The team was also honored in June for academic achievement with a team GPA of 3.36.

 

"One local business has taken notice of these achievements and as a result the college’s athletic department will have a major sponsor for its basketball, baseball and softball teams."

Niki Phillips, media buyer for EPB Fiber Optics, said, “EPB Fiber Optics invests a significant amount of our marketing dollars into community sponsorships and is committed to education. We are proud to support the college and the athletics program.

 

”Called 'Powering Dreams,' the partnership fits both the sponsor’s product as well as the athletes who dream of bigger goals both on and off the field. Unique opportunities with this sponsorship include hosting an EPB Night during a home basketball game this season and a new sports conference backdrop that co-brands EPB with the ChattState Tigers for use in media and special events. The sponsorship also includes full-page ads in the student newspaper, The Communicator; signage posted in the gym and on ball field fences; and sponsorship of the 2015 Athletics Hall of Fame Banquet."

Athletics Director Kim Smith and Head Basketball Coach Jay Price recently unveiled the sports conference backdrop during a meeting of college administrators that included Ms. Phillips and Chattanooga State basketball players.

 

We are grateful for EPB’s generous partnership,” said Smith. “The students are exemplifying leadership, spirit, pride and loyalty like never before, and it is an honor to have EPB recognize our athletes as they strive to make better lives for themselves in the classroom, during competition and in the community.”
