Congratulations to Joan Cronan

January 12th, 2017

Former Tennessee women’s athletics director and Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame 2008 Inductee Joan Cronan has been named the inaugural recipient of the NCAA President’s Pat Summitt Award. Created this year, the award recognizes an individual in the NCAA’s membership for “positively influencing college athletes and their experiences through the individual’s career-long commitment to advocating for college sports. “Pat Summitt’s interest was always the student part of the student-athlete first,” said Cronan in a news release Wednesday announcing the award. “She felt that her basketball court was a classroom, and she was a wonderful teacher. It’s wonderful that the NCAA will honor her not just for her coaching but for her making a difference, and that’s why I’m so honored to receive this award.”
