Godwin Hired as Director of Construction and Facilities

Glenda Godwin of Gallatin is the new director of Construction and Facilities at Volunteer State Community College. She was most recently vice president, senior real estate manager and facilities manager for First Tennessee Bank.

“I like the fact that everything is in one location for the Vol State campuses,” Godwin said. “In my previous job, I had 42 banks between Springhill and Gallatin.”

Godwin arrives at a critical juncture. The college has just finished one major building project on the Gallatin campus, a new Health Sciences building, and is now beginning another, a new Humanities building.

“The Humanities project is a big one,” said Godwin. “We’re having planning meetings every couple of weeks.”

When asked what she would like to accomplish in her new role she said: "I would like to incorporate more standards in design. I think that would help make the processes much easier."


Godwin holds a bachelor’s degree in Interior Design from the University of Illinois at Champaign. She taught interior design at the University of Mississippi and the University of Memphis.
