Chairperson & Mrs. East Tennessee America 2018

Shonjrell Ladner

Published author of three children’s books, a patent pending inventor, and CEO and founder of two companies, Shonjrell Ladner, Mrs. East Tennessee America 2018, believes that no gift is greater, than simply giving your time and helping those in need.   Shonjrell is a volunteer “Neonatal Intensive Care Unit Cuddler” at the University of Tennessee Medical Center, where she comforts babies in the absence of their parents.  She also serves as a board member of a leading addiction rehab facility among, many other voluntary efforts.  While volunteering to wash the hair of those less fortunate, Shonjrell was saddened to see the massive amount of those who showed up, needing food, clothing, and above all love.  She is proud to be the chairperson, of “Fight Hunger Week,” as an ambassador of the “Scarecrow Foundation.”   Together with over ten organizations in our community, we can feed the homeless.
