TWC’s Education Angels would like to extend a huge thank you to everyone who attended and participated in Tuesday’s Chili Cook-Off which helped raise over $400 that will go toward benefiting surrounding community students through several community projects. One of those projects is the Backsacks Project which provides weekend food for McMinn County High School students and is supported by TWC's Center for Servant Leadership.

The Chili Cook-Off categories were spicy and mild with an additional overall winner category. TWC Director of Residence Life Jo Baldwin won 2nd place overall winner and 2nd place spicy chili. TWC Vice President for Student Life Scott Mashburn won 2nd place mild chili winner. TWC Advancement Coordinator Stacie Clifton won 1st place mild winner and TWC Director of Student Life Kerrie Lynn was the judges’ favorite, winning 1st place spicy chili and 1st place overall winner.

“The event was an absolute wonderful success and we are so grateful so many people enjoyed it,” said Rachel McDonald, TWC education angels president. “We would love to do a similiar fundraiser next semester to continue to raise money for the Backsacks Project, the community, and the area schools.”
