Y-12’s Vaughn appointed to UT board
Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam appointed Syreeta Vaughn to the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, Advisory Board in December.
Vaughn, a graduate of UT, has served on the Earth and Planetary Science Board for more than 10 years. “I have had the honor and pleasure of seeing the EPS department grow and thrive,” Vaughn said. “Through my service and homegrown connection to the community, I have had a unique opportunity to see the impact UT has made on the community, students, and in my life.”
Vaughn has set her goal to be similar to what Haslam has envisioned. “Originally, UT had one board to support the entire UT collegiate system. Governor Haslam’s vision is that the four-board approach will afford us (the members) with the opportunity to meet UTK specific campus needs. As a UTK alumnus, I can only hope the small role that I will play as a member of this board will make a small impact both in the community and within UT.”
