Cooning joins Trevecca community

Peggy J. Cooning, assistant to the president for development and marketing, joined the Trevecca community last Monday as a member of the president’s cabinet.

“The Trevecca community members have opened their arms and made my family and I feel welcomed and surrounded with love and support,” said Cooning. “We are pleased to be in an environment so filled with Christian love.”

Cooning comes to Trevecca with more than 26 years of development, marketing and communications experience in higher education and the healthcare field. She served nearly 12 years in various advancement and development roles at West Virginia Wesleyan College in Buckhannon, West Virginia. Most recently, she served six years as vice president for external relations. Prior to West Virginia Wesleyan, she worked with hospitals, healthcare associations, and the March of Dimes Birth Defects Foundation. She is a graduate of Purdue University.

“I am excited to have the opportunity to support and promote a university so uniquely focused on its mission to form people who embody likeness to Jesus Christ, serve their fellow humans, and provide expertise that shapes the world,” said Cooning.

Cooning comes to Nashville with her husband, Mike Sloane, and daughter, Emily. They reside in the Lebanon area with their dog, three cats and five horses.
