The Freed-Hardeman University Board of Trustees selected two new trustees at their meeting Jan. 31. The trustees are Steve Baggett of Dickson, Tenn., and Scott Latham of Montgomery, Ala.


Baggett has been the pulpit minister for the Walnut Street Church of Christ since 2001. He is a graduate of East Tennessee School of Preaching. In addition, he holds a Bachelor of Science in secondary education from Tennessee Technological University and a Master of Arts in religion from David Lipscomb University. In addition to his ministry, Baggett volunteers with Habitat for Humanity. He and his wife Pam have two sons, Matthew and Jason.

Latham serves as the president and CEO of Alabama Bankers Association. He earned a degree in accounting from Alabama Christian College and a Master of Business Administration from Auburn University before attending the Graduate School of Banking of the South. He and his wife Michelle attend the University Church of Christ, where he is an elder. He is also a member of the board of directors of Lads to Leaders. The couple has two daughters, Abby and Caroline, who are current students at FHU.

The board of trustees is the governing body of FHU. Through their adoption of fundamental statements of mission and policy, the board seeks to ensure the accomplishment of the mission of the university: to provide every student an education permeated with Christian values.
