Morning Round-up: Chattanooga Education Forum, Top Cops, & Flora Nooga
Want to give your feedback on education in Chattanooga and Hamilton County? The Chattanooga 2.0 initiative hosts a public forum this afternoon at the Bessie Smith Cultural Center at 4pm. The public will be asked about positive things happening in local education — and what are some bold solutions to address a growing number of challenges.
Six Chattanooga Police officers received recognition over the weekend as “TOP COPS” from the National Association of Police Organizations. Field Training Officer Keven Flanagan, Master Patrol Officer Jeff Lancaster, Master Patrol Officer Sean O’Brien, Master Patrol Officer Dennis Pedigo, Patrol Officer Lucas Timmons, and Master Patrol Officer Grover Lee Wilson the-third were honored for their quick response during the July 16th shootings.
Some Chattanooga-area kindergarteners have come up with a new name for a bald eagle at Reflection Riding Arboretum & Nature Center. Students at John Allen Elementary School in Soddy-Daisy came up with the name Flora Nooga. The eagle was brought to the nature center after being hit by a car in Florida.
