In Praise Of Federal Judge Sandy Mattice

Wednesday, October 9, 2019

If President Trump or any future president needs an example of the type of person to appoint to the federal courts, it is Judge Mattice. Judge Mattice is a person of impeccable fairness, character and integrity, and has served the people in this district well.

We hate to see him step down, but know he will enjoy his well-deserved retirement with his family.

The Chattanooga High School Alumni Association is honored to share the Judge as a distinguished alumni with our friends at Baylor.

He attended CHS for two years, and then transferred to Baylor his senior year when the zoning rules were changed.  He is also a member of the CHS Hall of Fame.

Thanks for your service, Judge.
