Rep. Mark Maddox named to SREB
Gov. Phil Bredesen has announced the appointment of State Representative Mark Maddox (D-Dresden) to the Legislative Advisory Council of the Southern Regional Education Board (SREB). Maddox’s term coincides with the legislative term.
Founded in 1948, the Southern Regional Education Board is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization that works with leaders and policy-makers in 16 member states to improve pre-K through postsecondary education. Through many nationally recognized programs and services, SREB’s mission is helping states achieve 12 Challenge to Lead Goals for Education.
The Legislative Advisory Council is the largest standing advisory body to the Board. Maddox joins House Speaker Pro Tem Lois DeBerry, Representative Eddie Yokley, State Senator Charlotte Burks, and State Senator Reginald Tate, to complete Tennessee’s delegation.
Maddox said, “Education is a key to economic development for Weakley County, the state of Tennessee and our Southern Region. I am humbled that Gov. Bredesen has placed his confidence in me to help improve education across the region. I am glad to serve Tennessee’s citizens on the SREB Legislative Advisory Council.”
