We are thrilled to partner with the Knoxville Area Urban League Young Professionals for this year’s 4th Annual Cork Savvy Wine Tasting and Silent Auction. KAUL Young Professionals group partnered with the commission to promote the retention of talented young professionals in the Knoxville area. This is an excellent opportunity for students from diverse backgrounds to learn more about career opportunities within Knoxville. Please contact cfb@utk.edu as soon as possible if you are or know of any students interested in this opportunity.
