He represented the 14th State Senatorial District in Tennessee between 2008 and 2012, serving on the Senate Environment and Conservation Committee, Commerce, Labor and Agriculture Committee, and Joint Fiscal Review Committee.

“We are thrilled to have Eric join our team at SAS,” said Director of Development Tim Graham. “Eric understands the importance of relationship building and communication in helping to inspire giving to a worthy mission. We look forward to harnessing his skills and experience for the good of SAS.”

“I’m excited about joining SAS,” added Stewart. “When in the legislature I had a passion for improving education and providing opportunities for all. Working with SAS, its outstanding faculty, staff, and students, gives me the opportunity to continue that passion and use my experience to the benefit of an outstanding school committed to providing opportunities for all.”
