It's Official: Glenda Glover Named TSU's New President

Posted By on Wed, Nov 28, 2012 at 5:04 AM

In a unanimous vote, the Tennessee Board of Regents made Glenda Glover TSU's ninth president. According to the City Paper,

Glover, the former dean of the College of Business at Jackson State University, received support from the TSU National Alumni Association and other community members. Gov. Bill Haslam, who spoke with all four finalists for the job, also praised Glover.

Haslam told reporters Tuesday morning that he was “particularly impressed” with Glover. “We have a couple of mutual friends down in Jackson, Mississippi, who I checked on her with who came back with great reports.”

On Twitter, Pierce Greenberg reported that, after she was voted in, Regent Greg Duckett said, "Welcome back."

"Welcome back." Aw, excuse me a minute. I think I've got a little something in my eye. I hope that's what the students write in the fence with cups for Glover's first day.
