The president of STS Ventures, a firm that incubates start-up companies in Nashville, Tennessee, Scott Sohr earned an MBA from the Vanderbilt University Owen School of Management and now sits on the school’s real estate advisory board. Away from his work, Scott Sohr supports Gilda’s Club Nashville, named after Gilda Radner, which provides resources to people with cancer.
Gilda’s Club Noogieland™, named after a Saturday Night Live skit, aims to help children between the ages of 5 and 17 whose lives have been impacted by cancer. Free of charge, Noogieland™ provides two support group programs that offer children a safe environment to express their feelings.
Kid Support™ is a day-long program that offers information relating to communication, socialization, and relaxation for children who live with a loved one who has cancer or have received a cancer diagnosis themselves. Grief Relief™ groups focus on children who have lost someone to cancer. The groups strive to help children process the emotions related to grief and celebrate the lives of those they have lost.
