Behler takes oath for Human Rights Commission appointment

Juvenile Court Clerk Gary Behler took the oath of office for a new term with the Tennessee Human Rights Commission during a ceremony at Hamilton County Juvenile Court Feb. 12.

Juvenile Court Judge Rob Philyaw provided the oath. Gov. Bill Lee has reappointed Behler to the commission, which is made up of individuals representing the three grand divisions of the state.

The appointments are generally made based on the track record of the individual’s service within his or her community. Since becoming juvenile court clerk, Behler spearheaded the effort to change the court’s antiquated paper-based filing system to an electronic one.

Behler also has a long history of community service.
