Susanne Cox: From Bookstore Clerk to College President

Susanne Cox was named president of the Tennessee College of Applied Technology Morristown. She has been vice president of TCAT Morristown since 2014.

The college enrolls just under 700 students, according to the most recent data from the U.S. Department of Education. Women make up just 26 percent of the student body.

Cox joined the staff at TCAT Morristown in 1990 as a bookstore clerk and assistant to the president, and 10 years later was appointed business office manager in 2000. From 2010 to 2012, she served as a student services support associate, followed by service as financial aid coordinator from 2012 to 2014.

“I never imagined when I began my career as a bookstore clerk almost 32 years ago that I would become the college president,” Cox said. “We have a great team at TCAT Morristown. I truly have a passion for technical education — for seeing students succeed, families succeed and my community succeed. So I’m really excited about continuing the great things at TCAT Morristown and moving the college forward.”

President Cox is a graduate of Tusculum University in Greenville, Tennessee, where she majored in organizational management. She holds a master’s degree in instructional leadership with a concentration in career and technical education from Tennessee State University.
