Miss Tennessee To Visit Children At Signal Centers

Wednesday, December 6, 2017

Caty Davis, Miss Tennessee 2017, will be visiting the children of Signal Centers, 109 N. Germantown Road on Friday at 9:45 a.m. 

Miss Tennessee is a yearly guest of the Chattanooga Civitan Club during their December fundraiser. The meeting is highlighted by an enthusiastic Clazton fruitcake auction, which raises money for local charities.

“Each year Miss Tennessee takes tours of agencies near and dear to Civitans’ hearts,” said Pam Hudson, Signal Centers Children’s Program director and Civitan member. “This year she will stop by Signal Centers where she will certainly be inspired by our children’s tenacity, drive, individuality and charm.” 

Signal Centers Children’s Program serves children six weeks to six years of age. Using an inclusion model of teaching, children with disabilities and typical children play and learn alongside each other.
