Chambliss Law Firm Honors Outstanding UTC Students
Chambliss law firm honored the 2013-2014 John C. Stophel Distinguished Students at its annual Stophel Scholars reception on Tuesday, February 18 at the Chambliss Conference Center, Liberty Tower. The reception offered the 10 award recipients, eight undergraduates and two graduate students, the opportunity to meet and engage with members of Chattanooga’s business community.
“We are humbled to be able to honor these hard working, devoted students with recognition and introductions to some of our area’s most engaged business leaders,” said Tony Young, firm administrator of Chambliss.
The Stophel Scholars program, now in its sixth year, aims to foster local talent and encourage promising students to build long-lasting mentor relationships with Chattanooga professionals. The John C. Stophel Distinguished Student Award recognizes high potential students in the UTC College of Business who are emerging leaders. Award recipients are chosen based on strong leadership skills, self-motivating initiative, strong decision-making skills and communication skills.
This year’s recipients include: Bradley Bell, Marketing, Knoxville, Tenn.; Kayla DeLong, Accounting, Maryville, Tenn.; Kelsey Giddens, Management, Franklin, Tenn.; Saasha Jones, MBA, Chattanooga, Tenn.; Scott Kramer, Accounting, Chicago, Ill.; Sydney Lamb, Accounting, Tullahoma, Tenn.; Kate Linehart, Accounting, Signal Mountain, Tenn.; Erin Mercer, Marketing, Hendersonville, Tenn.; Lynna Nguyen, Accounting and Finance, Chattanooga, Tenn.; and James Walpert, MBA, Chattanooga, Tenn.
“UTC is proud of these young men and women and appreciates the commitment Chambliss has made, through the John C. Stophel Award, to recognize some of our outstanding business students,” said Dr. Robert Dooley, Dean of UTC’s College of Business. “This networking event gave the students a chance to talk with potential mentors and future employers.”
Chambliss law firm established an endowment at UTC in 2008 to honor the legacy of Mr. Stophel, a founding member of the firm. He practiced law for more than 50 years, and during his career led numerous civic, charitable and religious efforts in the community. He served as Chairman of the University of Chattanooga Foundation Board of Trustees from 2001-2004.
