Vice Chairman

Anne Haston
After graduating from the University of Tennessee Knoxville and marrying her high school sweetheart, Anne became a Realtor while husband, Max, served at Fort Hood, Texas

The Hastons transitioned from Active Duty to the National Guard in 1983, returning to Knoxville where Anne worked as an (AICP) Planner with Barge, Waggoner, Sumner, and Cannon, a Tennessee based engineering firm.

As a military spouse and mother, Anne has volunteered with AIM High TN, Daughters of the American Revolution, PTA, Fisher House, Ronald McDonald House, TN Expect More, Achieve More Coalition, and UT Alumni Association.

As a child and youth education advocate since 1997, and as first lady of the Tennessee National Guard since 2010, Anne now advocates for the 'force behind the force' - the military child and family - by engaging community-based support for all military families and serving as a mentor to the TN National Guard Youth Action Council.
