    Dr. Robin Tricoli will be a wonderful asset to Hiwassee College. Her warmth, personality, and energy along with her extensive background in strategic planning, budgeting, service learning, and institutional governance will take the college to new heights. She has worked closely with the presidents at both California State University, Fresno, and at Northern Kentucky University, serving as the Chief of Staff at the latter. Recently, she was responsible for evaluating the status of goals and accomplishments under the University of Georgia’s ten-year strategic plan. Congratulations, Dr. Tricoli and congratulations Hiwassee College!

    I had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Robin Tricoli at a conference. Her graciousness, intelligence, and experience will serve her well as president of Hiwassee College. After she shared her ideas about higher education, many of us were left wondering how Atlanta ever let her get away. Georgia’s loss and Tennessee’s gain! Congratulations, Dr.Tricoli.

    Dr. Robin Tricoli, like her husaband Dr. Anthony Tricoli (president of Georgia Perimeter College in Atlanta, GA) is a true visionary. But unlike most other visionaries, she gets the job done-just like her husband Anthony does!

    Both of the Dr’s Tricoli are out-of-the-box thinkers and that’s what makes them so desirable in higher education today. I know them both, and they are perhaps among the top two or three of our nations’ powerhouse education couples. Georgia and Tennessee have no idea how lucky they are. We are still crying in our soup about their loss from California, and I’d bet that Kentucky is feeling the same.

    Congratulations to Dr. Robin Tricoli and to Hiwassee College.
