Three individuals have left their posts of the Austin Hatcher Foundation board: Adriene Petmecky, who served two years; Dr. Felicito Fernando, who served for 11 years, a stint that started when the foundation was formed in 2006; and Robert McMahan, ex vice president, Erwin Marine Sales who served three years and was the foundation’s treasurer.

“Our board membership reflects our core support in the Chattanooga area. That is by design. Whatever expansion we experience will not alter our fundamental commitment to this region which has made everything we do possible, since our formation in 2006.”
