John Cousino

Tennessee State Advocate

Hello, I am John Cousino. I am a professor in the allied health division at Chattanooga State Community College for the past 30 years. I became interested in conservation and education back in the mid-seventies through scouting. I completed my master educator training in 2005. I  love this area because of all the outdoor possibilities this state has to offer. I have hang glided off Lookout mountain and climbed inside some of the cave systems in this area. I enjoy paddling and most water sports above and below the surface. I aim to introduce more people to the idea that we must protect what we love. My main goal is to develop a strong trainer and master base. Please feel free to contact me for any education or outreach opportunities or to get involved with our efforts here in TN.
