MTSU faculty and staff representatives appeared on WGNS Radio recently to share information about the university’s plans for in-person classes for fall amid COVID-19, a community project honoring the contributions of women throughout local history and services offered by the Tennessee Small Business Development Center.
The details were shared during the June 15 “Action Line” program with host Scott Walker. The live program was broadcast on FM 100.5, 101.9 and AM 1450 from the WGNS studio in downtown Murfreesboro. If you missed it, you can listen to a podcast of the show here.
Guests and their topics included:
• University Provost Mark Byrnes, chair of the MTSU COVID-19 Task Force, discusses the
recently released task force recommendations for a modified return to in-person classes for Fall 2020.
• Lucy Langworthy, assistant to the dean in the MTSU College of Liberal Arts and interim chair of the Rutherford Arts Alliance, discusses the university’s contributions to the “Leading Ladies of Rutherford County” project, which will honor great women in Rutherford County history to celebrate the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage in America.
• Chris Swoner, director of the Tennessee Small Business Development Center in Murfreesboro, which is hosted by MTSU, talked about TSBDC services, including assisting small business owners with the applying for federal COVID-19 relief and loans.
