“David Cook is the metro columnist for the Times Free Press, working in the same building where he began his post-college career as a sportswriter for the Chattanooga Free Press. A graduate of Red Bank High, Cook holds a Master's Degree in Peace and Justice Studies from Prescott College and an English literature degree from University of Tennessee-Knoxville. For the last twelve years, Cook has been a teacher at the middle, high school and university level. Most days, his students taught him more than he taught them.
A Marshall Memorial Fellow, Cook has published in magazines (The Sun, Utne Reader, Geez), academic journals and an upcoming anthology on homelessness. Best of all, he goes home each day to his wife and two kids.”
