Author and former “Saturday Night Live” writer Leland Gregory will discuss the goals of the Complete College Tennessee Act of 2010 during the next Roane County Chamber of Commerce Speaker Series Luncheon.
The luncheon begins at noon in the cafeteria faculty lounge on Roane State Community College’s main campus in Roane County.
Space is limited. Call the Chamber at 376-5572 for reservations.
The Complete College Tennessee Act of 2010 is a provocative statewide effort.
This Gates Foundation-funded education initiative to the Tennessee Association of Business Foundation makes several changes designed to enhance cooperation between colleges and universities.
It calls for the development of:
• A statewide master plan for future development of public higher education in the state.
• Polices and formulae or guidelines for fair and equitable distribution and use of public funds that are consistent with and further the goals of the statewide master plan.
• A university tract program of 60 hours of instruction that can be transferred and applied toward the requirements for a bachelor’s degree at the public universities.
Currently working as a comedy writer and political media consultant, Gregory lives in Nashville.
In addition to his writing credit for the longtime NBC late-night comedy series, Gregory is the two-time New York Times bestselling author of “Stupid American History” and “America’s Dumbest Criminals.”
He has also penned “The Stupid Crook Book,” “What’s the Number for 911?” and “Stupid History.”
