Freda Player-Peters was sworn in Nov. 12 as the new District 7 representative on the Metro Nashville Public Schools Board of Education.

The Metro Nashville Council appointed Player-Peters to the school board at the Nov. 5 meeting.


“To the council members who appointed me to this position and my new school board colleagues, I so look forward to working with you, and we have great work to do,” Player-Peters said at her swearing-in ceremony.

Player-Peters, who is serving in the seat vacated in September by former board member Will Pinkston, received 26 votes from the Metro Nashville Council and will remain in the position until August 2020, when the seat is up for re-election. She most recently served as a senior legislative liaison in the mayor’s office.

In August, Nashville voters approved a charter amendment that brings the city into compliance with a state law that requires the Metro Nashville Council to fill any vacancy on the Metro Nashville Public School board. Previously, school board vacancies could be filled by the remaining members of the board.
