Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam and Department of Veterans Services Commissioner Many-Bears Grinder today announced September 24-30 as Student Veterans Week for their contributions to enrich campuses statewide.

In 1944, just weeks after the D-Day invasion, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt signed into law the Servicemen's Readjustment Act, commonly known as the GI Bill which provides veterans with access to education, employment and housing opportunities.

In 2015, Tennessee veterans used $265,299,000 in educational benefits at campuses across the state.

More than 8,800 student veterans are currently enrolled in Tennessee higher education institutions.

Veterans Services will host the third annual Student Veteran Organization Summit at Lipscomb University at 1 University Park Drive in Nashville on Saturday, September 30 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

Thirty campuses statewide will present the Student Veteran Week proclamation to Student Veteran Organizations or high performing student veterans who have made significant campus contributions.

Norman Clark mistrial: Jury deadlocked on Brittany Eldridge murder case
WVLT Friday September 22, 2017

Norman Clark's retrial came to a close Friday, and a mistrial was declared after the jury could not reach a verdict in the Brittany Eldridge murder case, WVLT reports. The decision of whether or not the case will be tried again is now in the hands of the state. The Knox County Criminal Court said the case has been put back on the docket for a status hearing in October, but could not provide further details. Clark is accused of killing his estranged ex-girlfriend, Brittany Eldridge, and their unborn son, Zeke, in her northwest Knoxville apartment in December 2011. According to WVLT, he was retried this week after the jurors came back hopelessly deadlocked 11-1 in favor of a "not guilty" verdict in the case's initial August 2015 trial.
