Trevecca Nazarene University

Student political event featured by Tennessee Report

The importance of politics at the state level was the emphasis of a student-planned event held on campus Tuesday, March 16.


The event began with a "meet and greet" with local and state politicians who are actively involved in governing the state of Tennessee. This was followed by an address concerning the importance of state politics and a question and answer session with the students.

Although expected featured speaker and gubernatorial candidate Kim McMillan was unable to attend because of an illness in her family, Democratic state party chairman Chip Forrester came in her stead and spoke to the group. Other guests included Steven Turner (Candidate for House District 58), Jeff Yarbro (Candidate for Senate District 21), Karen Johnson (Candidate for Davidson County Juvenile Court Clerk), Jeff Brousal (Candidate for Davidson County Juvenile Court Clerk), and Howard Jones (Candidate for Davidson County Juvenile Court Clerk).

Trevecca student Tyler Carpenter, president of Trevecca’s College Democrats, was interviewed. The event was planned and sponsored by the College Democrats group.
