Event Description:
Secretary of State Tre Hargett will be the special guest speaker for the annual Leadership Cleveland Alumni Association Scholarship luncheon. This special luncheon will be held on Thursday, May 18, at noon at the Cleveland Country Club and will also serve as the graduation ceremony for the current class of Leadership Cleveland participants.
 
Secretary Hargett was elected by the Tennessee General Assembly to serve as Tennessee’s 37th secretary of state in 2009 and re-elected in 2013 and 2017. Secretary Hargett is the chief executive officer of the Department of State with oversight of more than 300 employees. He also serves on 15 boards and commissions, two of which he is the presiding member. The services and oversight found in the Secretary of State's office reach every department and agency in state government.
 
In 2010, Secretary Hargett was chosen as a Henry Toll Fellow, an honor given to 40 of the nation’s top state government officials. Additionally, he is a member and former president of the National Association of Secretaries of State (NASS), on the board of directors of the YMCA Center for Civic Engagement, a member of the Union University Advisory Board, as well as former chairman of the executive committee of the Republican Secretaries of State Committee (RSSC).
 
Previously, Hargett served as chairman of the Tennessee Regulatory Authority. Before joining the Tennessee Regulatory Authority he was regional vice president for a publicly traded emergency services provider. Secretary Hargett served in the Tennessee House of Representatives for a decade representing District 97 (Bartlett and Memphis) and was twice elected Republican Leader by his colleagues.
 
Hargett earned a BBA in Accounting with honors from Memphis State University, as well as an MBA from the University of Memphis.
 
Each year if funding is available the scholarship committee of the Leadership Cleveland Alumni Association awards a scholarship for the Leadership Cleveland program to a non-profit executive in Cleveland and Bradley County. This year’s recipient of the scholarship is Rachel Brannen of Junior Achievement. The funds raised at this luncheon along with alumni donations support that scholarship.
 
Deadline for reservations is Tuesday, May 16. All members are welcome to support the alumni association efforts by attending the luncheon.
