Tennessee Commissioner of Education Candice McQueen will speak at Freed-Hardeman University’s spring commencement exercises May 12, 2018, at 10 a.m. in Loyd Auditorium.
Last year under McQueen’s leadership, Tennessee announced its highest graduation rate in history, 89.1 percent, and its highest ACT score ever at 20.1. The state also had a record number of students attaining credit for early college coursework.
Shortly after taking office in January 2015, the commissioner led a statewide effort called Tennessee Succeeds which focuses on increasing postsecondary and career readiness for all of Tennessee’s 1 million students.
McQueen began her career as a classroom teacher in public and private elementary and middle schools. As commissioner, she has connected with more than 14,000 teachers on her Classroom Chronicles Tour and has visited almost 90 percent of the state’s school districts.
She holds a bachelor’s degree from Lipscomb University, a master’s degree from Vanderbilt University and a doctorate from University of Texas.
The public is invited to attend the commencement program.
