The event was in celebration of many milestones including the successful conclusion of a capital campaign, President and CEO Phil Acord’s 45 years of service, and the agency’s 145 years of caring for children in the community. The reception was sponsored by board member Mark Hite and The Mark Hite Team at Keller Williams.
 
Current board members, sustaining board members, and capital campaign donors were in attendance to hear former Board Chairman Betsy Caldwell review how the agency has built on its past, Mr.
Acord honor the present work of the organization, and current Board Chairman Paul Fitzgerald celebrate the projects shaping the future.  
 
“Chambliss Center for Children has a long, wonderful history in Chattanooga,” said Mr. Fitzgerald. “We have been blessed to have Phil Acord leading the charge for 45 years, and greatly appreciate the tremendous support we have received from the community, especially in this recent capital campaign. We’re excited to know that the projects we have in the works, and those on the drawing board, will continue to move this agency forward with meeting the needs of children and families.”
