Honoring our Heroes from the Southeast Tennessee Chapter
Major General, retired Terry “Max” Haston, the 75th Adjunct General of the Tennessee National Guard, spoke to the crowd about his experiences including his interaction with the Red Cross throughout his career.
Each year, the American Red Cross of Southeast Tennessee honors individuals and groups for acts of great bravery, dedication and service to the community at the Heroes Luncheon, sharing the mission of the American Red Cross and raising the financial funding resources necessary to provide their core humanitarian services. This year was no different, we honored eight individuals in six categories for their service to the community: Ann Marie Fitzsimmons and Niki Keck, Call to Action Heroes; Becky Ellgass, First Responder Hero; Jim Fox and Johnny Hale, Medical Heroes; Allen Green, Service to Youth Hero; Phil Garver, Service to Armed Forces Hero; and Harry “Hap” Harwell, Humanitarian of the Year.
I would like to extend a special thank you to our generous event sponsors. Without your support, and the support of all our donors, it would be impossible for us to fulfill our mission.
Thank you to everyone who made this year’s Heroes Luncheon such a success!
