The Tennessee Board of Regents will hold a telephonic meeting at 3 p.m. (CDT) Thursday, May 12, to consider Chancellor John Morgan’s recommendation that Wise be appointed president of Pellissippi State Community College.
Julia Wood, director of marketing and communications with Pellissippi State Community College, said the recommendation goes to the board on May 12. “Assuming they approve it, and it is expected they will, he will take office on July 1,” she said.
