Centerstone’s Military Services Board Member Gen. Scott Brower has been appointed by Tennessee Governor Bill Lee to serve as Chief of Staff for the newly designated COVID-19 Unified Command. A joint effort led by Tennessee Department of Finance & Administration Commissioner Stuart McWhorter, the COVID-19 Unified Command will work to streamline coordination of crisis services between the Tennessee Emergency Management Agency, the Tennessee Department of Health, and the Tennessee Department of Military. As Chief of Staff, Brower will work to ensure all relevant information is moving quickly and efficiently, allowing the Governor to make informed decision that will help keep residents safe.
“Gen. Brower’s special forces background and previous service as the Acting Senior Commander for the 101st Airborne Division has enabled him to pull leaders together and troubleshoot quickly in a crisis,” said McWhorter. “Gov. Lee has urged our team to challenge every barrier and assembling this team is the first step.”
Brower, who also serves as the Military Advisor in Residence at Austin Peay State University, joined the Board of Directors of Centerstone’s Military Services in 2018. Since then, he has drawn from his experience serving in the Army to provide important oversight and guidance of all of our military services.
“We are glad to have Scott Brower as part of our Centerstone’s Military Services Board of Directors and we are proud of all of his accomplishments, too. It is great to see him continuing to serve his country through efforts like the COVID-19 Unified Command,” Jodie Robison, Executive Director of Centerstone’s Military Services said.
