As an assistant professor in the Business Division at Chattanooga State Community College, Clomeisha Tumlin was recently named this year’s First Horizon Business Chair of Excellence.
Teaching students to reach their highest potential is Tumlin’s passion. While serving as a master faculty for High Impact Practices (HIPs), she implemented HIPs into the personal finance and human resources management courses to increase student success.
Tumlin received her undergraduate degree from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, and worked in human resources with local health companies prior to teaching.
She volunteers on several Chattanooga State committees, serves as a TN Promise and Building Outstanding Student Scholars (BOSS) mentor, SkillsUSA advisor, and within the community serves as treasurer of the East Brainerd Council for the Chamber of Commerce.
Tumlin was named Chattanooga Chamber of Commerce Volunteer of the Year in 2017.
The Chattanooga State Foundation Chairs of Excellence program is designed to support and recognize outstanding faculty.
“We are fortunate to have philanthropic partners committed to honoring excellent faculty who are making a difference in the lives of our students and the community,” said Nancy Patterson, vice president of College Advancement and Public Relations. “We remain grateful to Erlanger and First Horizon for being such outstanding collaborators with Chattanooga State.”
