Deathridge Appointed to TSBA Board of Directors

Gloria Deathridge, a member of Knox County Schools Board of Education representing District 1, has been appointed to a one-year term on the Tennessee School Board Association’s Board of Directors.

The appointment to serve as one of four at-large members was confirmed at the board’s meeting on Nov. 5, during the TSBA convention that was held over the weekend in Nashville.

“We’re pleased that TSBA has recognized Gloria Deathridge as a state leader in education policy and support. Not just Knox County, but all of Tennessee will be well served by Gloria’s judgment and experience,” Interim Superintendent Buzz Thomas said. 
Ms. Deathridge was first elected to the Knox County school board in September 2010, and served as vice-chair in 2013. She was re-elected to the school board in 2014.

TSBA is a non-profit, private service organization whose mission is to assist school boards in effectively governing school districts. TSBA provides school board members a collective voice in matters of legislation and public education concerns.
