The Judge David Campbell Chapter of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution presented awards to two women of the community.

Jennifer Ley Crutchfield of North Chattanooga was presented the Women in American History Award for her notable promotion of Chattanooga now and in the past.  Ms. Crutchfield is the author of Chattanooga Landmarks.  She is currently the director of Public Relations at WTCI-TV/PBS.  In the past she has been the editor of Chattanooga Parent Magazine, in which she wrote a column called “History Mystery,” exploring Chattanooga landmarks and history.  She has been a Chattanooga historic destinations examiner and a relocation agent for expatriating families moving to Chattanooga.  Ms. Crutchfield has taught an afterschool program called Chattanooga History Mystery Detective Club, teaching students about their city’s rich heritage. 

Stacy Lynn Kehoe of East Brainerd was presented with the DAR Community Service Award for her work with the Signal Mountain and Ooltewah divisions of the United States Naval Sea Cadets.  Lieutenant Junior Grade Kehoe has lead her Sea Cadets through many activities that have benefitted the community.  They participated in the cleanup activities after the tornadoes in spring of 2012.  They have helped replace trees at the National Cemetery, participated in Wreaths Across America ceremonies, taught flag etiquette and folding technique, among other activities.  Ms. Kehoe has instilled in her cadets a pride of patriotism, support for active military, and a respect for veterans.
