The Annette Anderson Directors' Award


The Annette Anderson Directors' Award is granted annually to clients of the East Tennessee Community Design Center who have demonstrated a commitment to making East Tennessee a better place.

This award is a tribute to the on-going legacy of Annette Anderson and the contributions she made to this region through her leadership and passion for our community. Annette served as Executive Director of the Design Center for over twenty years, and is among a handful of people who crafted what became the essence of ETCDC.

Her vision, her relentless insistence on broad community involvement, and her commitment to quality design nurtured what has become the Design Center’s legacy. The award is presented to celebrate and perpetuate the qualities of Annette Anderson in building a better future for East Tennessee.

The award was created by Ernie Gross Designs.
