Governor of Tennessee

Andrew Johnson was Governor of Tennessee from 1853 to 1857 and then again as a military governor during the Civil War from 1862 to 1865.  He helped to pave the way for Tennessee to rejoin the Union after the War and pushed for the first tax for public education.

You can find another president on this list, but a few more famous names!  Going to be honest - didn't really think about Sam Houston as a Tennessee Governor!
