Knoxville, Tn -  Retiring Tennessee women's athletic director emeritus Joan Cronan believes the school will withstand the adversity it's encountered since consolidating its men's and women's athletic departments.
    
But she wants to make sure the Lady Vols brand and logo remain an integral part of the school's tradition. The orange "T'' is used for the men's teams and "Lady Volunteers" logo is added for the women's teams.
    
Cronan says "that logo stands for so much" and notes that "McDonald's wouldn't give up its arches."
    
Cronan was the Tennessee women's athletic director from 1983-2012. She has spent the last two years under contract as women's athletic director emeritus and adviser to the chancellor.
    
The 70-year-old Cronan will maintain the emeritus title after Monday when she retires.
