WASHINGTON (News Sentinel) - President Barack Obama has nominated two Tennesseans to serve on the Tennessee Valley Authority's board of directors.

Virginia Lodge, who served as commissioner of the Tennessee Department of Human Services from 2003 to 2011, and Ronald Walter, the president and general manager of Memphis television station WREG, were given the nod Thursday to serve on the utility's nine-member board.

Their nominations must be confirmed by the U.S. Senate.

Lodge is the chief-executive officer of FSI Inc. in Nashville, which provides production and distribution services for businesses. She also worked on former Gov. Phil Bredesen's gubernatorial campaign and transition team and served as national director of GoreCorps for Al Gore's presidential campaign in 2000.
