Ramsey Taps Social Studies Teacher For TCRS Board
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Senate Speaker Ron Ramsey has appointed a Kingsport social studies teacher to the Tennessee Consolidated Retirement System Board of Trustees.
The Blountville Republican made the announcement this week.
The teacher, Kevin Fielden, is a graduate of East Tennessee State University and has taught social studies in northeast Tennessee for 20 years.
The 20-member board is responsible for the general administration and operation of TCRS overseeing a nearly $35 billion trust fund for state and local employee pensions.
Employee representation on the board includes three teachers from each of the state's three divisions. They are appointed for three-year terms.
