NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – The Tennessee Board of Regents has voted unanimously to approve alumna Glenda Baskin Glover as the next president of Tennessee State University in Nashville.

TBR Chancellor John Morgan announced last week that he was recommending Glover out of 4 finalists.

Glover is currently the dean of the College of Business at Jackson State University in Jackson, Miss. She got her bachelor's degree at Tennessee State University, where she will take over as president on Jan. 2.

She told the board on Tuesday that she's “honored and excited” about returning to her alma mater.

Glover replaces interim president Portia Shields, who has led the historically black university during a reaccreditation process.
