Cox serves as past President in the Trenton Lion Club Chapter, is active in PLUG (Professional Leaders Uniting Grundy County), a proud graduate of the 2016 Leadership Trenton Class, and recently became a Chamber Ambassador with the Trenton Chamber of Commerce. He has been nominated to fill a three-year term on the Board, which consists of 22 members from various communities in north central Missouri. It is expected that Cox will formally join the Board at its August meeting.
Teresa J. Cross, Director of the NCMC Foundation, comments, “We are excited to have Seth Cox joining our NCMC Foundation Board. Having grown up in Trenton, Seth knows the important role NCMC plays for students in our area. By having opportunities for a college education, it can change the lives of not just our students, but also their families by helping provide resources and opportunities. Seth’s dedication to our community and its success will make him a valuable asset as we prepare NCMC for the next 90 years.”
Cox and his wife Kendra are the parents of two children: Dominic and Ava Rose. He has a huge passion for serving his community, as evidenced through his profession in law enforcement coupled with his active participation in the numerous service organizations.
When asked about the most rewarding part of law enforcement Seth answered, “Being in law enforcement provides numerous opportunities to serve our community and help to make the necessary changes to ensure the safest and positive environment for the citizens in our area. People see law enforcement on some of our worst days. We can get a bad rap for that, but it is so truly rewarding when you look back at a specific person or situation, and you can tell that you made a real difference for the better in someone’s life- that is truly why we do this job.”
Cox is very excited and humbled to join the NCMC Foundation Board and looks forward working with his peers and serving his community through this role.
