NEW STATE EDUCATION COMMITTEE CHAIRS VISIT, TOUR MTSU
April 2, 2009
MURFREESBORO—It was appropriate that the new education committee chairs in both the Tennessee House and Senate visited Middle Tennessee State University on Thursday, the school of choice of valedictorians and salutatorians across middle Tennessee and the institution where more undergraduates are getting their education than anywhere else in the state.
MTSU President Sidney A. McPhee welcomed Rep. Harry Brooks, R-Knoxville (19th District), and Sen. Dolores Gresham, R-Somerville (26th District), for an informal visit to get acquainted and to learn more about Tennessee’s fastest-growing university. Following lunch, the president took the legislators on a driving tour of the 500-acre campus where they saw the new Health and Wellness Center and pharmacy, took a turn on the new roundabout and viewed the sites of the future Student Union, College of Education Building and the proposed Science Building.
