NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV-AP) -

The Tennessee Board of Regents has approved alumna Glenda Baskin Glover to become the next president of Tennessee State University.

The vote was unanimous after TBR Chancellor John Morgan announced last week that he was recommending Glover out of four finalists.

Glover is currently the dean of the College of Business at Jackson State University in Jackson, Miss. She got her bachelor's degree at TSU.

Glover has served at Jackson State University since 1994 and is a licensed attorney and certified public accountant. She has degrees from Clark Atlanta University, Georgetown University Law Center and George Washington University.

Glover will replace interim president Portia Shields, who has led the historically black university during a reaccreditation process.
