During the last year, Chattanooga 2.0 has undergone an intense strategic planning process with cross-sector partners in Chattanooga-Hamilton County. Community leaders and volunteers have come together to create a collaborative plan that will advance equity and opportunity in the county, ultimately ensuring the success of young children and students, said officials.
During “Forward Together,” on Thursday, Chattanooga 2.0 will recap the last five years of the community’s progress towards achieving the bold goals set in 2015, as well as release its first report to the community since that time.
Executive Director Molly Blankenship, recently named to Forbes’ 2021 30 Under 30 List, will lay out new strategies to impact the areas of early childhood, early grade success, college and career readiness, and postsecondary completion in Chattanooga-Hamilton County.
Dr. JaNay Queen Nazaire, chief strategy officer at Living Cities, will deliver keynote remarks and accept questions from the audience.
Special guests include Hamilton County Schools Superintendent Dr. Bryan Johnson, Chattanooga Mayor Andy Berke, and a panel of Hamilton County Schools students.
