Scenic City Angel (SCA) is an initiative of Mark Making. Our pedagogy is grassroots and community-based. We help cultivate leaders from disadvantaged communities and assist them in helping others create change in their lives and their communities.
Our leaders are chosen based on their contribution to the betterment of others– the economic value of the outcomes of their contributions: such as when they help others obtain skills to get and keep a living-wage job, when an ex-felon stays out of jail and helps teenagers do the same, when a public housing residents are able to start a business of her own to serve others in their community.
SCA is coordinated by Connie Willett, a native of Nashville. She is a veteran community activist, working with local Chattanooga non-profits for over 30 years. Connie has a background in art and music, and is a UTC alumnus.
