Special Guests

Brandon Parks, Associate General Manager at IMG College – The Vol Network,
Tyler Boldin, Manager of Major Gifts and Leadership Giving / United Way of Greater Knoxville
and
Joel Simmons, Rehabilitation Counseling and Public Relations at East Tennessee Technology Access Center

joins The Housing Hour this week to continue our multi-part series entitled: “being a united neighbor’.  Each of our guests brings a unique perspective to the collective power of  ‘community’ through The United Way of Greater Knoxville.

Brandon Parks discusses his role in the  Young Leaders’ Society (YLS) which cultivates a new generation of donors by engaging young professionals in United Way’s work by offering networking opportunities, service projects, and leadership development.

Tyler Boldin was formally a ‘Loaned Executive’ for the United Way of Greater Knoxville.   A ‘Loaned Executive’ does much of the front-line fundraising work but are volunteered by local employers to complement United Way’s full-time staff. Tyler used his experience as a ‘Loaned Executive’  to decide he wanted to be a permanent staff member with the United Way and help them grow their incredible outreach into the Knoxville and surrounding communities.

Joel Simmons was a beneficiary of United Way of Greater Knoxville through one of their many agencies.  Joel had a devastating car accident in 2010 that left him a quadriplegic.   United Way of Greater Knoxville connected Joel with East Tennessee Technology Access Center to help train Joel with new skill sets that prepared him for his future.
