Cox named to Cottey College
Board of Trustees
Dr. Gary Cox of Lawrenceburg was recently appointed to the Cottey College Board of Trustees in July.
Cox is the president of the Association of Independent Kentucky Colleges and Universities, a position he has held since 1997. As president, he serves as CEO for an association of 20 non-profit Kentucky colleges and universities. Cox and his staff represent the group with various policymaking bodies at the state and national levels, raise private funds in support of student scholarships and collaborative ventures between member campuses, develop cost-saving partnerships for members with business and other external organizations, and advocate in other ways on behalf of the non-profit college community.
Prior to his appointment, Cox served for more than 20 years in various leadership positions with the Kentucky Council on Postsecondary Education and its successor agency. He served for a decade as the executive director of the Council and briefly as acting president of the successor agency.
Cox began his career in higher education as an assistant professor of political science at Morehead State University, also serving as the director of the Public Affairs Internship program. Following his time at Morehead State, Cox was employed by the Kentucky Legislative Research Commission, eventually becoming the deputy director. He also served as the Dean of the School of Public Affairs at Kentucky State University.
Cox and his wife Linda have four children and eight grandchildren. He is a long-time member and past chair of the Board of Directors of the Cardinal Hill Rehabilitation Hospital and is a member of Lawrenceburg First Baptist Church.
The Anderson News was provided with incorrect information in an article last week about the Anderson County Fiscal Court.
Danny Fuqua was road foreman at the time a bond in place to finish work on Paula Drive was cashed, according to Judge-Executive John Wayne Conway.
Also, the county road foreman, not the planning and zoning commission, set the amounts for bonds, Conway said.
