Overseeing the activities of the Chamber of Commerce in the fastest growing county in East Tennessee can be a challenge, but Daryl L. Brady, the executive vice president of the Jefferson County chamber, says the foundation he received at Walters State prepared him to meet that challenge.

"If it had not been for a scholarship I received from Walters State, I might not have even gone to college," Brady said.

After graduating from WSCC in 1986, Brady went on to the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, where he earned a B.S. in Business Administration.

"No matter where you go to college, the quality of the education you receive is what matters most. At Walters State there are a lot of great teachers doing a fantastic job," Brady also said.

Brady joined the Chamber of Commerce in 1996 after spending several years as national sales manager and regional sales director of a personnel services company. Three years ago, he was promoted to his current position.

"Walters State afforded me a great opportunity and inspired me to go on to achieve more."
