Sherrill Joins Adult & Teen Challenge MidSouth

Sherrill steps into the role of Marketing and Development Director

Chattanooga, TN, December 31, 2020 – Karen Sherrill joined Adult & Teen Challenge MidSouth this month to lead the marketing and development initiatives of the ministry. The announcement was made by David McNabb, president of the local nonprofit.  The seasoned marketing and development professional was previously with The Salvation Army of Greater Chattanooga.

“Karen first came to us in 2019 as a volunteer at the request of a board member,” says McNabb. “This year, as she teamed with Barbara Marter, of the Weldon F. Osborne Foundation, to begin our strategic planning process, we saw the breadth of her skills,” he continues.

Sherrill’s primary responsibilities will be to write grants and serve the interests of donors. In addition, Sherrill will work closely with the staff and board on execution principles once the strategic plan is completed in early 2021.
