Clyde Rolston, professor of music business at Belmont, was recently selected to participate in the 12th Transit Citizens Leadership Academy (TCLA). TCLA is the Transit Alliance of Middle Tennessee’s primary tool for educating and empowering constituencies. The TCLA is designed to equip private and public sector leaders across the 10 counties of Middle Tennessee with the personal and group tools to lead conversations about the value of multimodal transit across the region and about the emerging mass transit options that can address our mobility needs.
After this class is completed, there will be more than 300 alumni of TCLA throughout the 10 counties. These citizens are educated on transit modes, applications, challenges and opportunities and are empowered to hold meaningful conversations and give presentations to their faith group, civic organization, friends and family on transit across the region.
