Cote is a junior political science major who is the president of the UT Martin Pre-Law Club. He is also active in the social fraternity Sigma Chi and plans to attend law school after graduating from UT Martin. Later, he hopes to run for congressman.
Greer is senior political science major who is active in the Pre-Law Club on campus. He is also a member of the social fraternity Kappa Alpha Order and plans to attend law school upon graduation.
Frye is a senior in the Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies program with a focus on business law and international marketing. He is active in the Tennessee Higher Education Commission, Lumina Foundation, Student Government Association and Skyhawk Veterans Association. He served as a PEP leader for UT Martin’s First-Year Initiative program and is a member of the social fraternity Sigma Phi Epsilon.
Greer will be working under state Rep. Andy Holt, while Cote and Frye are expected to receive specific assignments in January.
UT Martin has participated in the Tennessee Legislative Internship program every year since it began in 1973.
