JACKSON, Tenn. — Monday, The Old Hickory Rotary Club had a meeting featuring a guest speaker, Union University President Dr. Dub Oliver.

Afterwards, President Oliver talked about Union University and Jackson’s history, and the future of the university.

“It’s just encouraging,” Dr. Oliver said. “Union and Jackson are so connected. Of course, we celebrated the bicentennial of Jackson just this last year.
