Galesburg, IL – Rich Egger's guest is Dr Teresa Amott. She is the new president of Knox College.
Amott comes to Knox College from western New York state, which is where the founders of Knox and Galesburg began their journey to the Midwest 175 years ago.
Amott believes all college presidents today face an economically challenging environment for higher education. She hopes her background as an economist will help her lead the school through such times.
