JACKSON, Tenn. – April 23, 2004 – Dr. Randy Shadburn has been appointed executive director of the Union University Germantown campus.
“Randy Shadburn is an outstanding educator who is totally committed to the mission and vision of Union University – Germantown,” Union President David S.

The growth of the Germantown Campus is exciting for us and having a leader like Dr. Shadburn at this time for that campus is significant in every way.”
As the campus has grown, the need to consolidate administrative leadership has become evident.
