On Tuesday November 27th at around 2pm, during a conference call it became official, Glenda Glover is TSU’s new president. The selection committee included Governor Bill Haslam who had nothing but good things to say about the newly appointed President. He said later in an interview, “I think Mrs. Glover will be a crucial piece in the puzzle of moving Tennessee State University forward.”
Glenda Glover is a 1974 graduate of Tennessee State University with a degree in mathematics. In her campaign she stressed the importance of Improving alumni relations. The other three finalists all were very student focused in their campaigns. The committee claimed they had a hard time choosing who to pick out of the four, as they said all were well qualified.
Dr. Glover accepted the job with excitement over the phone during the teleconference. While accepting she claimed, “I am excited to return to my alma mater Tennessee State University.” She is set to begin on January 2nd of next year.
