NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

Tennessee State University's new president delivered her first speech to faculty and students Monday morning.

Dr. Glenda Baskin Glover, the school's eighth president, said her goals are to increase graduation, lead by example and fundraising.

Glover said she personally wrote a check for $50,000 to the school.

After an extensive search, the Tennessee Board of Regents hired Glover in November. The Memphis-native graduated from TSU in 1974.

Glover is replacing interim president Dr. Portia Shields.
