When Saranah Holmes came to the RFK Center (now RFK Human Rights) as an Executive Assistant several years ago, we truly lucked out. She quickly became an integral part of our organization.
Not only were her communication, organizational and problem solving skills invaluable, she proved herself to be a superb project manager with a talent for event production and program oversight.
Creative, thoughtful and sparing no detail, Saranah can easily take the lead and see a project through to successful completion at a high level of excellence.
Saranah spearheaded our annual online auction, each year meeting or exceeding revenue goals which increased annually to $1.2 million. She coordinated details of award ceremonies, high-grossing gala dinners and golf tournaments, infusing fresh ideas and employing creative, cost-effective measures with goal oriented strategies.
A seasoned professional, Saranah knows the importance of weaving development, communications and program together to maximize fundraising opportunities.

It was a privilege to work with Holly Leber throughout her tenure at the Chattanooga Times Free Press.
As the previous Director of Marketing & Development at the Chattanooga Symphony & Opera, Ms. Leber and I regularly worked together. Holly’s collaborative spirit, intellect, and amazing energy made her one my favorite professional colleagues.
Our Chattanooga Times Free Press front page, breaking news story regarding Chattanooga’s first woman and youngest conductor of the CSO was a certain highlight. Maestra Kayoko Dan’s announcement came after a two year national conductor search headed by Henry Fogel. The front page story was masterfully written and perfectly executed by Ms. Leber.
The arts beat in Chattanooga hasn’t been the same without Ms. Leber. As a current member of the CSO Board of Directors, I am thankful for the many years our organization benefitted from Ms. Leber’s professional excellence.
