UTC Chancellor Steve Angle and UTC Student Government Association President Robert Fisher joined University of Tennessee President Joe DiPietro and representatives from every campus and institute at the University of Tennessee System’s annual “UT Day on the Hill” held in Nashville earlier this week.
Each year, UT alumni, students, faculty and staff from across the state gather at the State Capitol to highlight UT’s statewide impact and thank elected officials for their support of higher education.
“This is a great opportunity for the state’s elected officials to hear firsthand from our students and our leaders about the issues facing higher education,” said Cantrell. “UTC enjoys wonderful relationships with the delegation from our area as well as many other officials from across the state. They appreciate hearing about your commitment to student success and community connection. These are messages that resonate well with them and with their constituents.”
Joining Angle and Fisher from UTC were Abby Kinnard and Heather Murray, members of the UTC Freshman Senate; Jayne Holder, Director of Alumni Affairs; and Chuck Cantrell, Associate Vice Chancellor for Communication and Marketing.
President DiPietro and members of his leadership staff visited with Lieutenant Governor Ron Ramsey and House Speaker Beth Harwell.
