    Rep. Charles Sargent

    A message from our President on Rep. Charles Sargent's passing:

    “It is with great sadness I learned of Representative Charles Sargent’s death,” said Dr. Janet F. Smith, Columbia State president. “As one might expect, I could speak to his love of Columbia State, which he did; his work for higher education for all citizens, which was a priority; his commitment to his state and county, which he served as a statesman; but it is the man, my friend, that I mourn the loss. Charles had a wonderful laugh, a respectful way, and a dedication to making things better. He was a servant leader with the expectation of fairness and goodness. My sympathies to Nancy and his family, my appreciation to them for sharing him with Columbia State and Tennessee.”
