Thanks to all who came out to our year-ending event, the PSRW breakfast at 417 Union on May 10, 2012! We enjoyed the chance to greet TN-ASPA friends old and new. TN-ASPA recognized Dr. Bruce Rogers’ contribution to public administration over the 40 years he has served as Professor of public administration, and most recently Dean of the TSU College of Public Service and Urban Affairs; we announced our new Bruce Rogers Public Service Textbook Scholarship named in his honor. We also heard from newly minted Ph.D. recipient Cliff Lippard about his dissertation research on “Intergovernance,” which he presented at the national ASPA conference in March (with support from our chapter, as the first recipient of the TN-ASPA Student Conference Travel Award). Here’s the 2012 annual summary of our activities also distributed at the breakfast.
