Tennessee State University expects to make one of its alumna the school’s next president. Glenda Baskin Glover got the nod from the chancellor of the Tennessee Board of Regents, which oversees TSU. The full board could sign off on the recommendation next week.

Glover would replace interim president Portia Shields, who’s been in charge of TSU for the last two years. Glover was dean of the College of Business at Jackson State in Mississippi. She earned her bachelor’s degree in math at TSU, and had the backing of the school’s national alumni association.
