Nearly two thousand students records from Chattanooga State are missing. The company hired to scan the documents, mishandled them. The school took the records to a company, United Imaging in Walker County, where the papers would be converted to computer discs. The school was contacted by individuals who said there was something awry going on at this scanning site. That's when the school found their records in disarray, and brought them back. The papers included students' names, Social Security numbers, addresses, phone numbers, some even contained high school transcripts. Chattanooga State went through each item, hand by hand, and found nearly 2000 missing documents from 2007.
