TVCC's Lovato announces resignation

ATHENS, June 24, 2014— Elena Lovato, Trinity Valley Community College head women’s basketball coach, has announced she will resign her position, effective June 30, to accept a position with Mississippi State University.

Lovato led the team to back-to-back national championships during her time with TVCC.

“She’s turned down some other, probably more lucrative, offers. She just thought this was the right fit for her at this time,” said TVCC President Dr. Glendon Forgey. “We wish her well and hopefully she can help Coach [Vic] Schaefer get Mississippi State to where they want to be.”

KYYK’s Gary Richards spoke with Dr. Forgey about Lovato’s resignation and the upcoming search for her replacement.
