CREATED Jun 25, 2013

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.
