About Janice Mills
Full time Homemaker and I am a part of the Williamson County School Board
Time Served on Board of Trustees
This is my first year serving on the Board of Trustees.
Favorite thing about TTU
Tennessee Tech provides a high quality education at a reasonable price. It is a university that is student oriented and its focus is on student success. I enjoy being involved in the academic world.
Decision to serve on the Board of Trustees
I am interested in being a part of a team that focuses on students and parents staying connected to the educational process and exploring ways to provide the best opportunities for students to become successful in the global world in which they will compete for jobs.
The importance of the TTUPA to TTU
TTUPA is a great partner with the university and provides an excellent way for parents and families to stay in the loop about the things going on, not only with their students, but with the university as well.
The future of the TTUPA
I would like to see TTUPA develop a strategic plan that establishes goals to increase membership and connectivity to the university, to be proactive in developing a stronger relationship with the university to determine the needs of the university, families and students, and to maximize communications to parents and students thru a number of media sources.
Any current or former student(s) at TTU?
I have 2 current students with majors in Communications and Journalism.
Struggles for parents with college students
One of the things parents of college students struggle most with is communication and a lack of connectivity to their students, as well as the university.
Advice for parents with college students
Get involved with Tennessee Tech. It is important to the success of your student and the university. Listen objectively to what your student has to say and help guide them by supporting their needs and goals.
