Motlow College Welcomes Jan Rogers As New Director of Advancement
June 13, 2011
Motlow College announces the appointment of Jan Casey Rogers as the new Director of Advancement. Rogers is a former president of the Tullahoma Area Chamber of Commerce and as she says, "â€¦has long been committed to the success of the community." That commitment is evident in her lengthy list of civic and community service including Franklin and Coffee Counties Leadership Boards, the Kiwanis Club, United Way of Highland Rim, Tullahoma Sunrise Rotary Club, Southern Tennessee Medical Center Board of Trustees and she has been a trustee with the Motlow College Foundation since 2009.
Rogers comes to Motlow with years of experience in the banking industry. She was a mortgage loan specialist with American City Bank in Tullahoma and prior to that an assistant vice president for SunTrust Bank in Murfreesboro and Winchester. Hilda Tunstill, vice president for business affairs said, "Jan's work experience, public service, and volunteer work records are extensive with leadership roles that include fundraising, organizing special events, and recruiting members.Â These qualities are essential for the director of advancement."
When asked why she decided to come to Motlow College, Rogers said, "I have known many employees or members of the 'Motlow family' for several years and served on the Foundation Board of Trustees for three years; and I've always been impressed at how everyone here seems to really love Motlow and enjoy their work. When this position became available, it sounded like a great opportunity for me to make a career change but continue to work with the public, which is what I enjoy."
Dr. MaryLou Apple, president of Motlow College said, "Jan has a long history of 'giving back' to her community. I feel Motlow is very fortunate to attract a community leader like Jan Rogers. She will be an asset to our College and the Foundation."
Rogers, originally from McMinnville, attended Warren County High School and received her bachelor's degree in business administration from Middle Tennessee State University. She is the daughter of Billy J. Casey of Estill Springs and the late Mary Sue Casey. She is married to Thomas (Tommy) Rogers of Murfreesboro and they live in Estill Springs.
Her plans, as she settles into her new role are, "To continue developing various programs of giving to Motlow which will help fulfill the mission of the College. While talking to people I will have the chance to stress the importance of education and the fact that an educated population is essential to our quality of life." She closed in saying, "I am looking forward to doing what I do best and that is 'friend-raising' and community service; now I will do so in the name of Motlow College."
