Featured Friday: Tennesseans for Student Success

Mission: Tennesseans for Student Success is committed to improving student achievement in the Volunteer State.

School is officially back in session, so for this week’s Featured Friday CNM-member nonprofit, we are diving in to the world of education. The nonprofit Tennesseans for Student Success does exactly what their name suggests: they help Tennessee students succeed in the classroom. They work to achieve this mission by building a coalition between educators and educational leaders for teachers, administrators, parents, and the community. Their main focus is fighting for parent choice, adequate, and across the board assessment of students, and higher standards in education.

On a day to day basis, Brooke states that she is more of a behind-the-scenes employee, working closely with President/CEO Adam Lister. Brooke recently attended CNM’s “Understanding Strategic Planning” workshop because their organization is preparing to undergo the strategic planning process in the upcoming months.

When asked what she loves most about working in a nonprofit like Tennesseans for Student Success, Brooke responded: “This is more rewarding than just going to a job every day.  Even though it’s a job, you get to see the benefits of what you’re doing.”

Brooke wants others to know, if they have any questions, concerns, or interests about education in Tennessee, they are always looking to enroll more members to their coalition. Tennesseans for Student Success would love for anyone interested to reach out, voice their opinions, and be heard.
