“I congratulate Mr. Tucker on being elected to chair the TSU Foundation Board,” Patricia Brewer Hairston, acting vice president for university relations and development, said in a release. “With his experience as a senior executive, one who understands the needs of TSU, and as an Alum, Mr. Tucker will help to continue to move the Foundation forward.
