Podcasts, digital audio files available on your phone, tablets or computers, entertain and educate. TCCY, relying on the skills and experience of Jonquil Newland, has rolled out the agency’s first podcast called, “Roots and Wings.” Every month “Roots and Wings” will highlight a new subject or topic that impacts children and families across Tennessee. Please let TCCY know if you have ideas for their podcast.
The first guest to sit down with Newland was TCCY Executive Director Richard Kennedy. He has served as executive director for the Tennessee Commission on Children and Youth for nearly one year. However, his history with the agency is long standing. Jonquil Newland sits down with Kennedy to discuss his history with the agency as well as life milestones that lead him to the top spot at TCCY.
