Sewanee Athletic Director Mark Webb has announced that Susan Glover has been named the new equestrian center director at the University of the South. Glover comes to Sewanee from Virginia Intermont College in Bristol, Va., where she served as the horse manager/supervisor of the VI Riding Center and the VI American National Riding Commission head coach.
“Sue brings outstanding experience and a superb skill set to the position of equestrian center director,” said Webb. “She enjoyed great success as a teacher and a coach at Virginia Intermont, and I am confident she will be well-received by all who participate in our equestrian program.”
While at Virginia Intermont, Glover led the Cobras to the 2004 ANRC National Championship. She also served as an assistant coach for VI’s Intercollegiate Horse Show Association (IHSA) team. During that time, the Cobras won 15 IHSA national titles.
“I am honored to have been selected to become a part of a university with a 150-year tradition of academic excellence,” said Glover. “I look forward to working in Sewanee's beautiful, student-focused environment and to leading the equestrian program in its continued success."
Glover received her bachelor of science degree from Virginia Intermont in 1995 and was named the Faculty Member of the Year there in 2001.
