Chinese School Resumes Sept. 9 At Chattanooga State

Saturday, September 8, 2018

Ming Zhong, current Chattanooga Chinese School principal, says 74 students are currently enrolled (registration is ongoing) in levels one through five, as well as traditional and adult conversation classes this fall. Student ages range from six to mature adult.

Operating as a school through a contract with Chattanooga State Economic and Workforce Development, it remains as popular now as when it first began the fall of 1996, under the leadership of Mrs. Fui-Fang (Emma) Chen, said officials. 

Mrs. Li-Hwa Huang was the first principal of the school when it began in February 1978 under the auspices of the Chattanooga Chinese Association, a non-profit organization. A retired associate professor that taught physics at Chattanooga State, Mrs. Huang was also a teacher for the Chinese school. 

“Due to our school’s presence at Chattanooga State, many of our teachers, students, and members of our Chinese Association and the Chinese community are familiar faces in your school," said Thelma Chan, past Chattanooga Chinese School principal. "Chattanooga State has made an impression in our Chinese community. Some of our students are students of Chattanooga State and some of our teachers have become teachers at Chattanooga State.”

Chattanooga Chinese School is a well-established and leading institution of learning with more than 30 years of history in Chattanooga, said officials.  Staffed with experienced and professionally trained Chinese language and arts instructors, in the 2018-2019 academic year, the Chattanooga Chinese School will continue to offer seven different levels of Chinese language classes for both children and adults. In addition, the school will also offer Chinese folk dance class and Kong Fu classes for children. These classes will be taught by professionally trained instructors. 

First semester classes will meet every Sunday from Sept. 9-Dec. 16. Class will not meet on Sunday, Nov. 25, due to the Thanksgiving holiday.

Second semester classes will meet every Sunday from Jan. 20-May 19. Class will not meet on Sunday, Feb. 3 (Chinese New Year is Feb. 5) and will not meet on Sunday, April 21 (Easter holiday).

Roy Exum: The Lamar Rants

Being a child of the South, I’ve marveled at our funny sayings for all of my life.
