Wilson College gets grant to hire sports information director

April 25, 2013

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. — A National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) matching grant has been awarded to Wilson College, allowing the addition of a full-time athletics communication/sports information director to the college athletics department.

The NCAA Division III Strategic Alliance Matching Grant, which will be distributed over three years, is highly competitive: Wilson is one of just six institutions nationwide to receive the grant, according to a Wilson news release.

Wilson College applied for the grant after the Board of Trustees’ decision to expand coeducation across all programs, according to Wilson’s Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Lori Frey.

“Expanding Wilson’s athletics staff with this position is an important step in continuing to improve our intercollegiate sports programs, and will assist in making a smooth transition while we expand opportunities for our female and male student-athletes,” Frey said in the release.

This summer, Wilson College will launch a nationwide search for the athletics communication/sports information director position. The successful candidate will coordinate the strategic dissemination of information about the Wilson’s intercollegiate athletic program, as well as oversee the sports information department.

The NCAA will fund 75 percent of the position’s salary during the first year, 50 percent the second year and 25 percent during the third year.
