(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) — It is with great sadness that the State Board of Education acknowledges the death of its longest-serving member, Mr. Fielding Rolston, who died unexpectedly this week in Kiawah, South Carolina at 78-years-old. “Fielding Rolston provided invaluable service to the students and citizens of Tennessee in his nearly 25 years on the board,” said Dr. Sara Morrison, executive director of the State Board of Education. “Under his leadership, Tennessee raised expectations for student learning, elevated support for educators and witnessed dramatic improvements in student achievement. He will be dearly missed by all who had the opportunity to work and learn alongside him."Read full story
