Chattanooga Prep Promotes 2 Internal Employees To C-Level

Wednesday, September 30, 2020

Local boys’ charter school, Chattanooga Prep, promotes two employees, Brad Scott and Micah Reed, to CEO and COO, respectively. Mr. Scott currently serves as the head of the school and Ms. Reed serves as the director of operations. 

“This has been a year of hard work and dedication for our staff at Chatt Prep, and our foundation has only gotten stronger. Brad and Micah are two of the most integral team members to this school and to our students. We would not be where we are today without them,” Ted Alling, founder and chairman of the school, said. 

"Scott came to Chattanooga Prep in April 2019 and quickly became the driving force behind much of the school’s recruitment and staffing efforts," officials said. "He surrounded himself with strong team members and ensured diversity across the staff."

Prior to joining Chatt Prep, Mr. Scott was a founding school principal and senior leadership executive council member for IDEA Public Schools in Edinburg, Tx., a nationally recognized high-performing charter school network. He is a native of Chattanooga and is excited to be home serving students and families. 

Ms. Reed began with Chattanooga Prep in Winter 2017 as a development coordinator and then director of operations in 2019 until present.

"Reed has assisted the school on fundraising and operation fronts but found her true passion in leading the school’s operations and logistics," officials said.

Prior to Chattanooga Prep, Ms. Reed was the administrative services director for the Patrick Henry and Atlee Station YMCAs in Hanover County, Va. She relocated to Chattanooga from Richmond, Va. in 2017 and says she has enjoyed experiencing the city through the eyes of the students and families. 

“I am dedicated to our staff and our students. I am thankful to our founders for allowing us to take this step as we prepare to start high school next year with our students. I also could not do this without Ms. Reed. It just would not be doable,” Mr. Scott said. 

Chattanooga Prep is an all-male public charter school in Highland Park. It currently has grades six-eight and will open the doors to the high school in Fall 2021.
