Dr. Thomas Swenson, NCTM, elected 
MTNA Southern Division Director-Elect for 2020-22.  

His term began on March 22, 2020 at a Southern Division virtual meeting in lieu of the meeting that would have been held at the MTNA National Conference in Chicago. During these first two years he will be working closely with Linda Li-Bleuel, Southern Division Director, and the State MTNA Presidents of our division as we all navigate our ways through a quickly changing world.  In 2022 Thomas will begin a two-year term as Southern Division Director. After holding many positions on the local and state levels of MTNA he is grateful for the many friends and colleagues who have mentored, supported, and worked with him. 

Congratulations!
