Message from Marty Cook, President, State Court Clerks Association of Tennessee
I am a lifelong resident of Monroe County having graduated from Madisonville High School, Hiwassee College and attended the University of Tennessee. I have 2 adult daughters and have been involved in various organizations and I’m a member of the First Baptist Church in Madisonville. I am a Certified Public Administrator through the University of Tennessee Institute for Public Service.
I was among the 40 county and municipal government leaders who successfully completed the 20th annual Local Government Leadership Program (LGLP) hosted by the University of Tennessee Institute for Public Service’s (IPS) Naifeh Center for Effective Leadership.
UT faculty, executives of state government, and private consultants led the intensive three-day, invitation-only program that focused on personal leadership, public sector services, strategic planning and management, ethics, and the state’s economy and infrastructure.
I have served in many capacities in the State Court Clerk’s Association of Tennessee, from President of East Tennessee Clerk’s to Chairperson of Hospitability. For the last several years I have served as Co-Chair of the Education Committee, Coordinator of East Tennessee on the Legislative Committee. I was honored by being named the Outstanding State Court Clerk in Tennessee in 2010.
I was a deputy clerk in the office for 12 years prior to being elected in 1986 and presently I’m serving my 8th term.
