TC Political Science class visits with Tennessee Gubernatorial Candidate

Dr. Troy Goodale, assistant professor of political science, and his “State and Local Government” class visited with representatives of Gubernatorial Candidate Congressman Zach Wamp (R-3rd District) on Monday morning, sitting in the Campaign RV and discussing campaign strategy and party politics. At the conclusion of his visit with members of the Tusculum College Cabinet and other campus leaders, Wamp took a few minutes from his busy schedule to talk to Dr. Goodale and his students before leaving campus.

"It was a hands-on learning experience for the class to get the perspective on the governor's race for more than one hour from two important members of Congressman Wamp's Campaign Team," Dr. Goodale stated. "We then met briefly with the Congressman. This is just one advantage of the Block System and longer class meeting times: to be able to fit in unconventional, interactive learning at the spur of the moment when opportunities present themselves."
