Chattanooga State’s Martina Harris and Kisha Caldwell were honored at the 14th Annual Unbought and Unbossed Awards presented by Girls Inc. The phrase, “Unbought and Unbossed,” was coined by Shirley Chisholm during her historic run for the 1972 Democratic presidential nomination. The award honors local women who have made a significant impact on the lives of women and girls, and the honorees are chosen by high school age girls that participate in Girls Inc. 

Martina Harris, Ed.D., holds a Doctor of Education degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Tennessee State University and has been with Chattanooga State Community College since 2013. In addition to her duties as the assistant dean of Nursing and Allied Health Division, she serves on the boards for Chattanooga Room in the Inn, Chattanooga Girls Leadership Academy, Parkridge Health System, the American Cancer Society and is a member of the BlueCare Tennessee Community Health and Equity Advisory Panel, where she serves as the chair for the Southeast Region. Dr. Harris is a 2016 Maxine Smith Fellow. 

Kisha Caldwell, M.Ed., holds a Master of Education degree from Jones International University, is a doctoral student at Capella University and is 10-year employee of Chattanooga State. As director of recruiting services and orientation, she impacts the lives of students at Chattanooga State on a daily basis. Ms. Caldwell also serves as a mentor to students from 10 different educational institutions. Active in the community, she is a member of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc., volunteers at her church and rec associations, served as a SACSCOC peer evaluator, and is a 2014 Maxine Smith Fellow. 

Dr. Harris and Ms. Caldwell were two of eight honorees at the 2018 luncheon. This project is a part of Women’s History Month and not only teaches girls about women’s rights and the traits of leaders, but allows them to build their interview, research and public speaking skills.
