I’ve been to many cities in my professional career, but couldn’t say I’d found my new home in Knoxville until I became part of the “best class ever” with Introduction Knoxville. The comprehensiveness and care taken by Sandi Swilley and her experienced team showcased the best Knoxville has to offer, including how the many parts connect. The entire experience made the difference in me feeling included and later contributing in a meaningful way to the Knoxville community. Thanks Introduction Knoxville and Go Vols!
