    SC148: Harold M. Love, Jr., PhD--From the State HBCU to the State Legislature

    SC148: Harold M. Love, Jr., PhD--From the State HBCU to the State Legislature

    Representative Rev. Harold M. Love, Jr., PhD is a proud graduate of Tennessee State University (TSU), the only public Historically Black College or University in Tennessee.  In this episode we discuss his experiences attending an HBCU and the impact that it had on his personal and professional paths. 
    In a full circle moment of giving back to his alma mater and continuing the legacy of his father, Rep. Love championed efforts that showed the State of Tennessee may have underfunded TSU by as much as $544 million in matching payments.  As a result, the university will receive $318 million in one-time capital funding for the 2023 fiscal year.
    From painful losses to historic memorable moments, Rep. Love fondly describes his HBCU as a nurturing environment that enabled him to 'dream big dreams' and establish lifelong friendships.
