“Joan and Pat Summitt were what I call 'glass cutters' in building the Tennessee women’s athletics program. They did not break the glass ceiling; they carefully carved their way through.” —Sally Jenkins, Washington Post

 “Joan has the ability to bring out the best in people and provide them with the skills to be the best that they can be. It’s refreshing that despite all her vast accomplishments Joan remains humble and sincere.”  —Robin Roberts, co-anchor, Good Morning America

“Whether you’re in the board room or the the locker room, there is nothing more important than teamwork.  Joan Cronan is a gifted leader of teams, whose passion and devotion has led generations of athletes to be the very best that they can be.  Her learning and experience can be a hugely valuable lesson to us all.” —Kenneth W. Lowe, Chairman, President, and CEO, Scripps Networks Interactive

Joan’s vision, passion, and tireless efforts to grow women’s athletics and to promote women’s opportunities have made a huge difference across the nation for women in sports. Joan was a driving force in elevating the prominence and brand of Tennessee Lady Vol athletics through strategy, excellence, and priceless relationships.” —Pat Summitt, legendary Lady Vols basketball coach

“It has been my privilege to observe Joan’s leadership skills and to work alongside her in numerous civic endeavors over the years.  To put it simply, Joan is a type of person who gets things done because people want to do things with her.  During her years as the University of Tennessee Women’s Athletic Director, and in the time since she has retired, I have watched as people have repeatedly sought her out for advice, assistance, and encouragement.  And we’ve had a lot of laughs along the way.” —Governor Bill Haslam
