Chancellor Jimmy G. Cheek recognized the outgoing class of Chancellor’s Associates at the annual Chancellor’s Associates Breakfast on May 11, the group’s final meeting of the year.
The members of the Chancellor’s Associates are a diverse group of business, professional, and community leaders from the greater Knoxville area who meet monthly with Chancellor Cheek and other UT administrators to learn as much as possible about the rich and diverse program offerings at UT. The Chancellor’s Associates play a vital role in being involved, informed, and willing to assist in communicating the mission, vision, goals, and plans of the University of Tennessee to its stakeholders.
Chancellor’s Associates, most of whom are not UT alumni, serve three-year terms. There are approximately 20 associates in each class, bringing the total membership to approximately 60. In the outgoing class of 2010 are Bruce Bosse (2009–10 chair), Charles Alexander, Al Blakley, David Butler, Herb Debban, Faris Eid, Kathleen Finch, David Keim, Ken Knight, Mike McNamee, R. J. Miller, Roger Moore, Jim Roberto, James Schaad, Mary Linda Schwarzbart, Bill Shory, Luiz Velázquez, George Wallace, Charles West, and Louis Zivic.
