Joan Cronan, former Director of Women’s Athletics at the University of Tennessee, authored a new book titled, “Sport is Life with the Volume Turned Up.”
During her tenure she led the powerhouse Tennessee women’s athletics program to 10 NCAA Titles, 46 Top-Five NCAA Finishes, 80 Top-10 NCAA Finishes, 29 SEC Regular-Season Crowns and 24 SEC Tournament Championships.
Speaking of her new book, Cronan said, “I spent my career promoting opportunity for women in sports and leading one of the top women’s athletics programs in the country, and along the way, I learned many valuable lessons about what it takes to win. At its heart, this is a collection of personal stories and practical advice about what it takes to succeed in all spheres of your life.”
Cronan served as a mentor for the Leadership Foundation’s Fellows program for the 2009-2010 cohort. She is recognized along with IWF International Hall of Famer and sports legend Pat Summit as a driving force behind the global popularity of the Tennessee Lady Volunteers.
