Assistant Director, The Centenary

Monique Strickland

Hello! My name is Monique Strickland and I have been with The Centenary (formerly known as Inner City Ministry) for 17 years.  I have worked as a Group Leader, Teen Coordinator, Volunteer Coordinator, Tutorial Director and currently as Assistant Director.  I was born, raised and educated here in Chattanooga and attended college at Austin Peay State University.  I am a wife and mother of two.  My family and I have one fur baby named “Bear”. 

My job has become my ministry as I love that I am able to contribute to lives of the children we serve in a positive, encouraging, and loving way.  I count it a blessing to be in a position where children’s lives can be impacted educationally, outside of the classroom.  Over the years, I have thoroughly enjoyed connecting volunteers with kids in an effort to foster meaningful, supportive relationships.  Working alongside staff and our committed volunteers, we assist students with homework and offer one on one attention in tutoring and reading.
