Robert Fisher, Student Government Association (SGA) President and a Brock Scholar, recently added yet another addition to his already lengthy lists of achievements. After a nearly unanimous nomination by the SGA executive board followed by a thorough interview process, Fisher was recently appointed to the Tennessee Higher Education Commission (THEC) as the student representative of the University of Tennessee System.
Robert Fisher had sixty minutes warning he would meet President Barack Obama.
Fisher is a UTC Brock Scholar and the incoming Student Government Association President. He spent the summer in Washington, D.C., as an intern for the Center for American Progress, following his acceptance into The Institute for Responsible Citizenship’s prestigious summer leadership program. Fisher and his student colleagues met with lawmakers and asked for a resolution to the student loan interest rate problem.
