Farragut resident named chairperson of volunteers for Knoxville Red Cross


The Knoxville Area Chapter of the American Red Cross has chosen Farragut resident Clevonne Turner as its new chairperson of volunteers.

Turner, an adjunct faculty member in the University of Tennessee’s College of Social Work, currently serves on the board of directors for the American Red Cross and has been active with the Knoxville Area Chapter for a number of years.


In 2002, she received the Clara Barton Medal, the highest honor an American Red Cross volunteer can receive, for outstanding service to the American Red Cross.

“I am honored to be a small part of this great and wonderful organization. It has helped me to be a better person, social worker, friend, and Christian,” said Turner.

“This is a model ‘volunteer organization’ and I am constantly amazed at the ‘giving spirits of the Red Cross volunteers’ who are blessings to us all,” Turner added.

In 2003-04, the Knoxville Area Chapter responded to 190 single-family disasters and trained 22,000 people in one or more safety courses.

In addition, nearly 1,200 emergency messages for military personnel and their families were sent or received by the chapter last year.

For more information on volunteering with the American Red Cross, please call Clevonne at 865 584-2999 or log onto www.knoxarc.org.
