Mrs. Cox graduated from Hope College in 2011. She graduated with a BA in Political Science and Women’s Studies and received honors in each department. While at Hope, she enjoyed the opportunity to study abroad in both Rwanda and Ghana where she was able to study, travel, and become immersed in each culture. She also lead a student housing initiative to promote sustainable and “green” living on campus.

Upon returning home after four months in Kazakhstan, she enrolled in the Graduate Teacher Certification at Grand Valley to attain her secondary teaching certification.
