Team Information NEW ERA AT ASU: The 2008-09 academic year will be the first year in which Arkansas State University will compete as the Red Wolves. After 77 years of competition as the Indians, the Red Wolves mascot was adopted in January 2008 after many hours of work by the University’s Mascot Selection Steering Committee. The job of the committee was to make a new mascot recommendation to Chancellor Dr. Robert L. Potts and the University administration. The committee recommended “Wolves” at a Jan. 31 meeting, and the Red Wolves mascot evolved from that point.

2008 Season Outlook 12-19 record a year ago, Cummings is ready to put to rest the memories of 2007 with a roster loaded with talent, if not experience. Fifty percent of the ASU roster is made up of newcomers. “The recruiting class coming in is the largest we have brought in since the summer of 1996,” said Cummings. “That group brought in two conference championships. Whether this group can do that remains to be seen – that’s the beauty of what we do. But they are as talented as any group we have ever brought in, and that, combined with the group that is returning makes for a pretty nice bunch to work with. As a coach, I’m very excited to work with these young ladies.” “We have some firepower,” added Cummings. “I really like that we have a number of talented outside hitters. Even if one is having a rough night, we can put another in there and keep being strong. That is definitely an area that has been one of concern. In the past few years if we have had a rough night, we just had to live with it. That is hard on the team and hard on the individual involved.“ Two seniors, outside hitter Mafo Joelle (6-0, Yaounde, Cameroon) and defensive specialist Heather Gillion (5-8, Cardwell, Mo.) head up the 2008 ASU roster. Joelle played in 29 of Arkansas State’s 31 matches a year ago, recording double-digit kills on 16 occasions. She recorded a personal-best 19 kills three times during the 2007 season and finished second on the team with 319 kills, an average of 3.26 per game. Joelle also recorded 86 digs including a career Junior Libero Erin Neeley has led ASU in high 16 against Stetson. digs the last two seasons.

The mascot may have changed for the Arkansas State volleyball program heading into the 2008 season, but the goals remain the same. With a retooled roster that is loaded with fresh talent, a tenth Sun Belt Conference championship is the target as ASU begins its inaugural season as the Red Wolves. “We want to win in the division,” said ASU Head Coach Craig Cummings. “That’s goal number one. Number two is win the conference tournament. If you don’t set those sights, then you can’t achieve it. That’s what we step on the court to do. Beginning with practice through the end of the season, the goal is to put ourselves in position to do that.” After finishing with a disappointing

“Mafo finished very strong last season,” said Cummings. “It took some time for her to hit stride after some injuries in the middle of the season. I look for her to be solid for us on the right side. She has shown that she is legit in what she can do and I think she is ready for the battles.” Gillion played in a career-high 22 matches a year ago, tying her career high with 76 digs on the season. She posted a 14-dig performance against Alabama-Birmingham, and Cummings expects her to be a key reserve again in 2008. “Heather has contributed quite a bit defensively for us over the years and I look for her to bring her experience in spot positions this year,” Cummings said. Juniors Erin Neeley (5-5, Jonesboro, Ark.) and Mandy DeWalt (5-8, Houston, Texas) are beginning their third year in the ASU program, while juniors Konae Purcell (5-11, Aiea, Hawaii) and Heather Bowman (5-8, Fort Smith, Ark.) will both be counted on after transferring to Arkansas State from junior colleges. Neeley saw action in all 31 of ASU’s matches a year ago, leading the team in digs for the second consecutive season. Neeley finished the year with 464 digs, averaging 4.34 per game and was twice named Sun Belt Conference Defensive Player of the Week. Known to her teammates as “Red,” she recorded double-digit digs in 83 percent of ASU’s matches a year ago. “Red has been our Libero for two years and I expect her to be there again,” said Cummings. “She has great experience and now is to the point of being a leader for us. She is as steady as can be.” “Heather Bowman is incredibly talented to go along with Red at Libero,” added Cummings. “She was a junior college All-American and the defensive MVP of the NJCAA Nationals. It is her attitude and drive that make for her being a great defensive player.” Bowman earned first-team All-

2008 Season Table ofOutlook Contents America honors at Arkansas-Fort Smith, helping UAFS to a No. 8 national ranking each of the last two years. DeWalt and Purcell, both outside hitters will be counted on considerably this fall. DeWalt recorded 157 kills and 229 digs a year ago, with double-digit kills in four games and double-figure digs in 11, including a career-high 22 against Ole Miss. “Mandy had a really good spring and developed as an outside hitter,” said Cummings. “We need to have a good left side in order to be successful. She has improved tremendously and has also made improvement defensively and as a passer. All those skills go hand-in-hand and she will be in the mix and fighting for a starting spot.” Purcell may have the biggest impact of any newcomer. “My gosh, what a hammer,” said Cummings. “Something that every team needs is a solid outside hitter and I think she has the capability to terminate a lot of rallies for us. That is what we need if we are going to be successful.” ASU’s roster also includes four sophomores, all of whom saw playing time as freshmen a year ago. Outside hitters Laurel England (6-0, Rochester, N.Y.) and Kristen Catalane (6-1, Bonham, Texas) return for their second seasons along with setter Laura Bennett (5-8, Kansas City, Kansas) and middle blocker Christin Baker (510, Edmond, Okla.). “Kristen Catalane is another player who had a good spring for us,” said Cummings. “Her attacking range was something that we wanted to address going into the spring, and she has done that very well and is hitting the ball even harder. Laurel is in the mix for right side attacking, but has had to deal with quite a few injuries. She suffered with shin splints last year, had a shoulder problem, and had appendicitis last year, but she is due to have some good luck.” Last year Christin Baker went from

If been very successful in our conference she can continue on that pace she can and they all have defensive players like be one that gets it done for us. She is Jordan and Kaelynn that they can put competitive as can be, and we need in spots. All it takes is getting one that attacking speed in the middle.” good dig at the right time, and that can “As a setter, it is Laura Bennett’s make a difference in winning and loschance to be in the sun,” Cummings ing a game. Having players like this, continued. “She has worked incredi- not just in a match, but in practice to bly hard and had a good spring run- make players work harder to get a ball ning the offense and making good down makes those hitters even better decisions. Now people will have a throughout the season.” chance to see what this young lady can Cummings expects Fielder to make do. It’s what we knew she could do, her presence known throughout the it’s just that it is pretty hard when you Sun Belt quickly. “The local folks are working behind Katie Peil and know her already, and the rest of the what she was able to do.” The Red Wolves must overcome the loss of Peil and middle blocker Robin Aaron. Peil finished her career as ASU’s all-time assist leader with 5,048 while also adding 1,104 digs in her career. Aaron was an All-Sun Belt Conference performer who led ASU a year ago with 417 kills and 117 blocks. Helping ASU overcome the loss of Peil and Aaron are six incoming freshmen. Defensive specialists Kaelynn Benson (5-4, Trumann, Ark.) and Jordan Williams (5-7, Jonesboro (Nettleton HS), Ark.) and middle blocker Cayla Fielder (6-1, Jonesboro (Westside) Ark.) are signees that Northeast Arkansas fans will immediately recognize. “Kaelynn is a very Sophomore Kristen Catalane is expected to be a force on the outside this year.

2008 Season Outlook us as well as the outside. If there were someone we could refer to as a utility player, it might be her. I expect her to compete on the right side. She is 5’10” but she can almost touch 10 feet, so she gets off the ground really well. With that kind of athleticism we can spot her in the middle and she can give us some help there as well.” “Brittany Hoag is a big, strong young lady,” Cummings continued. “She attacks very high and hits very hard. The better and stronger your left-side hitters are, the more successful you can be, so she is another one who can be very special to us from the outside.” “We’ve got ability and depth at every position,” said Cummings. “The newcomers just need experience to get caught up to the speed of the game and be competitive and successful in the Sun Belt Conference. You have to have the athletic ability and the talent to do that, and these young ladies have that.” Assistant Coach Julie Allen is also a new addition to the ASU volleyball program, coming to Arkansas State after serving as an assistant at Georgetown. Allen joined the Georgetown program in August 2006 after spending nearly two years at California State as the head women’s volleyball coach and head men’s club coach. “I am truly excited that Julie agreed to come to Arkansas State and our volleySenior Mafo Joelle was second on the team a year ball program,” ago with 319 kills.

conference will find out pretty soon that she is a marvelous athletic talent and competitor. I am very excited to get her in the mix and see what she can do after a very successful high school career,” Cummings said. The three remaining freshmen all hail from the Houston, Texas area. Setter Brittany Crislip (5-8, Houston (Clear Lake), Texas), outside hitter Charlyn Ursell (5-10, Houston (New American School) Texas, and outside hitter Brittany Hoag (6-1, Crosby, Texas) make up the remainder of the class. “Brittany Crislip is very talented,” said Cummings. “Texas has a huge amount of athletes and she comes to us highly decorated. She was an all-region player and when you consider the number of high school players just in the Houston area, which is as many as in the entire state of Arkansas. That is quite an accomplishment.” “Charlyn is an amazing athlete for her size,” added Cummings. “She is very capable of playing the middle for

Cummings said. “She brings with her a wealth of experience from the Big East Conference, training the setters and coordinating the offense at Georgetown University during the last couple of seasons. With some very talented candidates in the pool, Julie stood out as the best, allowing our program to take advantage of her experience and expertise and help us climb back to the top of the Sun Belt Conference.” After graduating from the University of Portland, Allen was the head volleyball coach at Tualatin High School in Tualatin, Ore. and the head coach for the Empire Volleyball Club in Santa Rosa, Calif. A four-year setter at Portland, Allen stands at fifth on the Pilots’ all-time career assists list with 2,042. The Red Wolves open the season Aug. 29 in Houston at the Texas Southern Tournament, taking on Mississippi Valley State, Texas Southern and The Citadel. The home opener is set for Sept. 2 against Tennessee-Martin. Following the home opener, three consecutive tournaments follow before ASU opens conference play at home against New Orleans Sept. 25. “We open up at the Texas Southern Tournament and that is an opportunity for some of the girls to come home and play in front of family,” said Cummings. “We open up at home against Tennessee-Martin and they will have a young team that is talented. We will be tested at the UMKC Tournament (Sept. 5-6), especially with Samford. They are really, really solid and will be tough without a doubt. Morgan State will be tough as well and UMKC will also be solid.” “I think the toughest tournament will be the one at Southern Illinois Sept 12-13,” Cummings continued. “Southern Illinois returns a strong team that won the Ohio Valley Conference last year, then lost in the semifinals of their conference tournament. They will be hungry and motivated to have a good season as will Southeast

2008 Season Outlook Missouri State who will be a big test as well. Western Illinois is a good team with a new coach who is turning that program around. We entered the Western Carolina tournament to get out of this area and see teams that won’t be remotely like what we see anywhere else. We want to be successful there.” After opening Sun Belt play against New Orleans, the Red Wolves take on conference foes Louisiana-Lafayette, Louisiana-Monroe, South Alabama and Troy before taking a break from league play to host regional rival Memphis. “In conference play, we knocked New Orleans off right before the conference tournament and that was their last memory on their home floor,” said Cummings. “Whether that means anything or not, I don’t know, but it adds a little spice to the conference opener. Lafayette has a new coach who is trying to develop a winning attitude there and at Louisiana-Monroe they have been down at the bottom for the last couple of years, so they have been bringing in some good players. They were young last year and are going to be good again, but last year they were the best 1-20 team in the country because they just don’t quit. They have better talent and will be a tough team. South Alabama returns most of their starters so they will be solid, and Troy missed out on the tournament last year so we know they will be hungry. With their core of returners they will be tough, especially on the road.” “Memphis is thrown in during the middle of the conference schedule. Who did that, I don’t know,” Cummings joked. “It is always a fun one because we are kind of in each other’s back yard.” Following Memphis, ASU returns to Sun Belt play against always-tough Middle Tennessee and Western Kentucky before heading to Louisiana for road trips against New Orleans, ULM and ULL. “Middle Tennessee and Western

Kentucky, it is great to have both of them at home,” Cummings said. “Middle Tennessee went to the round of 16 in the NCAA Tournament last year and Western is, well, Western. To have to play them back-to-back is a nightmare in itself, but better home than on the road.” Arkansas State hosts Florida Atlantic and Florida International before facing UALR, Denver and North Texas. “Florida Atlantic brought in a good recruiting class and they had three or four freshmen on the court last year, so this is a year they should start turning the corner a little bit,” Cummings said. “FIU has probably the best leftside hitter in the conference and the best right-side hitter in the conference. They are just about as physical as they can be. I don’t know if anyone in the conference can hit harder than them. Maybe Konae, so that will be a nice matchup and could turn into a ‘who can hit harder’ contest.” “We play UALR, Denver and North Texas back-to-back and then turn around and do it all over again,” Cum-

mings continued. “UALR had a nice season last year and finished second in the league. They had some turnover, but still return a good right side and left side. Denver returns a good core and has a good shot to win the division. North Texas had huge turnover, but had a solid recruiting class and landed a couple of players we were trying to get.” The Sun Belt Conference Tournament will be played in Miami Nov. 2022. “Our conference is not what it was 10 or 12 years ago when you only had to worry about one or two matches a year,” Cummings said. “Now with the support all of the schools are getting, you’ve got to lace ‘em up every night. I wouldn’t want it any other way because that is what makes you better as a volleyball program and successful as a conference. Our schedule gives us a good mix. I like our schedule, it is challenging and will be good test for this team and I am excited as can be to get on the court and see what these young ladies can do. As a coach, you couldn’t ask for anything more.”

Head Coach Craig Cummings Craig Cummings is entering his 13th season as head coach of the Red Wolf volleyball program, making him the longest tenured coach in ASU volleyball history. During his 12 seasons at Arkansas State, Cummings has compiled an impressive 224161 record, picking up three Sun Belt Conference Coach of the Year honors along the way. During the 2006 campaign, he became just the third coach in ASU volleyball history to eclipse 200 victories, and last year moved into second place on the ASU all-time wins list. Cummings reached another milestone in 2007 as well when he topped the 300 career victories mark and he now stands at 305-271 through 18 seasons as a head coach. Hampered by injuries throughout the season, Arkansas State finished 12-19 a year ago, including an 8-10 mark in the Sun Belt Conference. Although ASU finished the year below .500, the season did produce several memorable moments. Arkansas State finished the regular season on a high note, winning three straight matches on the road in Louisiana. ASU began the late season surge with a 3-0 win at Louisiana-Monroe, followed by a 3-1 victory at Louisiana-Lafayette. Arkansas State completed the sweep through Louisiana when they defeated New Orleans 3-0 to close out the regular season, earning a berth in the Sun Belt Conference Tournament in the process. The 2007 season also was highlighted by senior middle blocker Robin Aaron being named to the All-Sun Belt Conference team for the third consecutive year, and senior Katie Peil’s ascent to the top of the career assists chart. Peil finished her career with 5,048 assists, becoming the only player in ASU history to top the 5,000-assist mark. During his tenure at Arkansas State, Cummings has guided the Red Wolf program to four Sun Belt Conference regular season championships, and one appearance in the NCAA Volleyball Tournament. His most recent championship came in 2004 when ASU took home the SBC East Division title, posting an 11-3 mark in Sun Belt play, and a 25-8 overall record on the season. In 2004, the then-Lady Indians closed out the regular season by picking up victories in 13 of their last 14 matches on their way to the title. The Tribe also posted an undefeated record at home with a 14-0 mark at the Convocation Center. Also under Cummings' tutelage, outside hitter Giedre Tarnauskaite was named the Sun Belt Conference Player of the Year and setter Katie Peil picked up SBC Freshman of the Year accolades. Cummings' crowning achievement so far was a three-game victory over Arkansas-Little Rock in Little Rock, Ark., on Nov. 21, 1999, that gave him his first SBC Tournament championship and ASU's first NCAA Tournament appearance since 1995. In 1999, Cummings guided the Lady Indians to a 21-11 record on the season. The 21 wins were the most for ASU since the 1999 campaign and returned ASU to the upper echelon in the Sun Belt Conference. ASU won another Sun Belt Conference title in 1999 when the Lady Indians finished with a 28-7 record, including a stellar 14-2 mark in conference action.

2007 Year-In-Review

Strong Finish, Record-Setting Year Highlight 2007 Season A strong finish to the year, a record-setting performance from a now-departed senior, and a thirdstraight All-Sun Belt Conference honor for another departed senior highlighted the 2007 season for the Arkansas State University volleyball program. Although the season ended with a final mark of 12-19, a strong push at the end of the regular season should serve to provide momentum and motivation as the Red Wolves era begins in 2008. Arkansas State picked up three victories in its final three matches in 2007, with all three wins coming on the road, earning ASU a berth in the Sun Belt Conference Tournament. With its back to the wall at 5-10 in conference play, ASU wrapped up the final season of the Lady Indian era with a successful road swing through the state of Louisiana. Arkansas State opened the final week of regular-season play by winning 3-0 on the road at LouisianaMonroe. From there, ASU traveled to Lafayette where they disposed of the Ragin’ Cajuns 3-1. With a berth in the conference tournament at stake, Arkansas State moved on to New Orleans, shocking the Lady Privateers 3-1 to earn a trip to Denver for the league tournament. At the end of the Louisiana road trip, ASU stood at 9-1 in its final 10 games of the regular season, with the only setback coming in game two at ULL. “That finish gave us something positive in a season of ups and downs,” said ASU Head Coach Craig Cummings. “I think the team matured a lot with that. We came together in Louisiana and won three in a row on the road to make the conference tournament.” Arkansas State faced top-seeded Middle Tennessee in the conference tournament, and although the Blue

Raiders defeated ASU 3-0, the three games were decided by a total of 13 points. “After playing well in Louisiana, I thought we competed well in the conference tournament as well,” said Cummings. “That carried over with a lot of hard work into the spring because the team understood that last season was not up to ASU volleyball standards.” The standards were raised for career assists a year ago, however. Senior Katie Peil shattered the ASU assist record with seven matches remaining in the regular season. Against Florida Atlantic in Boca Raton, Peil piled up a season-high 65 assists to move into first place on the ASU career list, helping Arkansas State to a 3-1 victory over the Owls in the process. Peil finished her career with 5,048 assists, eclipsing the mark of 4,725 set by Nicole Grimes from 1995-98. Peil also finished her career at No. 8 all-time on the ASU digs chart with 1,104, and her 115 service aces places her at ninth on the ASU all-time list. Senior Robin Aaron closed her career with her third consecutive berth on the Sun Belt Conference All-Conference team. Aaron was named to the Sun Belt’s Second Team for the third straight year after earning the honor as a junior and a sophomore. Aaron also wrote her name in the ASU record books, racking up 1,461 kills to finish fourth all-time on the ASU list. Aaron also finished at No. 3 on the ASU career blocks list, ending her senior season with 471 career blocks. Arkansas State also posted home victories over ULM and ULL a year ago, giving Cummings’ team a sweep of the Warhawks and Ragin’ Cajuns following the final week of play. Home victories over South Alabama and Troy also proved crucial

with a berth in the conference tournament on the line at the end of the regular season. Out of conference, ASU notched wins over San Jose State, Centenary, Mississippi Valley State and Stetson. “We are better and more prepared for the 2008 season,” Cummings said after looking back on 2007. “Mandy DeWalt, Kristin Catalane, Christin Baker, Laurel England, Erin Neeley, Laura Bennett, Konae Purcell and Mafo Joelle all worked extremely hard in the offseason. Put that together with the eight newcomers and it makes for some pretty competitive practices. That only translates into improvement for our team, and I think we have a better team from top to bottom than we did a year ago. I’m pretty excited, but now we have to get it done.”

Katie Peil (7) and Robin Aaron (4) wrote their names in the ASU record books during their senior season.

ASU went undefeated in home matches in backto-back seasons in 1988 (15-0) and 1989 (12-0) and won its first three home matches of the 1990 season to post a 28-match home winning streak the longest in program history. ASU has gone through a season with just one home loss four times, including three years ago in 2003. The other three came in 1994 (111), 1995 (15-1), and 1998 (14-1). Not only does the Convocation Center play host to Arkansas State athletic home events, the building also attracts people from all over Northeast Arkansas and the Mid-South region for a variety of other events— from concerts to conventions, area business expositions and conferences, banquets and university and high school commencements as well.

Welcome to Arkansas State University

Those who have not visited the campus of Arkansas State University in the last five or 10 years would be shocked at the school’s appearance today. So much on campus is tied to athletics. ASU’s athletic venues are the gathering site on game days and excitement surrounding each game can be felt for miles. The sights, the smells, the sounds of Red Wolves Athletics. There is so much construction and new projects on campus. The school looks . . . and is . . . a modern educational institution that has kept up with technology and student needs as much, if not more, than most schools in the nation. A student center addition anchors the campus and a new student recreation and wellness center is on the way. New campus housing has recently been completed, including a “Collegiate Park” apartment complex, coastal-type soft-colored housing throughout campus, and a new dorm. There is a new Alumni Center and construction of a new overpass connecting the campus to local businesses is about to become a reality. It’s a new-look campus that is growing and improving each day. Arkansas State University is an extremely valuable part of Northeast Arkansas and surrounding areas. On the following pages are portraits of the campus, of the people and areas which strengthen the university and those who are involved with its growth. Welcome to Arkansas State!

Welcome to Arkansas State University Fifteen master’s and two specialist degrees are offered, as well as doctoral degrees in educational leadership, environmental sciences, and heritage studies. Pre-professional programs are offered in nine areas. The bachelor’s degree programs with the most graduates are early childhood education, business administration, management information systems, accounting, nursing, agricultural business, and finance. The top graduate programs, based on number of degrees awarded, are business administration, education administration-elementary principalship, reading education, educational administration-secondary principalship, communication disorders, nursing and physical therapy. New academic programs are introduced as needed to respond to the rapid changes in our society. For instance, the athletic training program is the only such accredited program in the state. Academic strength has been enhanced with the Distance Learning Program which extends ASU’s educational influence across the nation. Also, ASU offers bachelor’s and master’s degree programs and upper level courses at ASU-Beebe, ASUMountain Home, and ASU degree centers in three Arkansas cities—Blytheville, Forrest City, and West Memphis—where partnership agreements have been established in cooperation with the community colleges in those cities.

Welcome to Arkansas State University ASU offers challenging, fully-accredited programs and a prestigious 600-member faculty with a vast number holding doctorates from other major institutions. Some faculty are nationally known for teaching, research and service in the sciences, humanities and professional fields. Arkansas State University’s commitment to excellence in higher education is demonstrated by its accreditation by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association, as well as 18 specialized accrediting organizations. ASU’s reputation toward excellence has been established in part by student performance in national competition, such as a nationally ranked debate team, and by the success of its graduates. The underlying principle of learning at Arkansas State University is its tradition of changing to meet the needs of its students and the society in which they live and work. Arkansas State University continues to grow and prosper because the university plans ahead for the needs of students. A recent example is the Horizon Institute of Technology, created in the College of Business with a major gift from alumna Dr. Kathy Brittain White. The institute will provide opportunities for students, faculty, community and business leaders to expand their capabilities for providing solutions and increasing productivity with technology.

Arkansas State’s new student union is identified by a new fountain. The fountain was provided by Chi Omega Sorority and serves as a beautiful landmark to enter the building.

Athletics Facilities Arkansas State University’s athletic programs compete in top-of-the line facilities. ASU Stadium, which opened in 1974, has evolved into a beautiful stadium which seats 30,406 fans. That includes a cluster of exclusive suites in the south end zone atop the football office complex. A million dollar video/scoreboard is the focal point in the stadium. Coaches and student-athletes moved into a new $2.7 million track and field complex in spring 2004. It contains an eight-lane 400-meter track and can be set up for two NCAA venues. Three local country clubs graciously allow ASU’s men’s and women’s golf programs to utilize their facilities for practice and play. J.A. “Ike” Tomlinson Stadium-Kell Field serves as home to Red Wolves baseball. Built in 1993, the stadium received complete lighting in 1996 and, most recently, 206 field level seats were added for the 2008 season. ASU’s newest women’s program, bowling, competes in the Jonesboro Bowling Center, a 40lane state-of-the-art facility.

RidgePointe Country Club hosts the annual ASU Red Wolves Golf Classic

The ASU Soccer Park opened in 2001, one year after the program was installed. It is located at the north end of ASU Stadium and accommodates seating for 500. The complex also is the office headquarters for the program. The Convocation Center seats 10,038 for basketball and is the home of ASU’s men’s and women’s teams.

Dr. Robert Potts, University Campus Chancellor Dr. Robert L. Potts, a veteran administrator in higher education, was selected after a national search on Oct. 6, 2006, to serve as the first chancellor of the Jonesboro campus of Arkansas State University. In that capacity, among his other duties he now provides oversight for ASU’s athletic program. After studying at Newbold College in England then completing his bachelor's degree at Southern Adventist University in Tennessee, Potts earned a juris doctor degree from the University of Alabama. He later earned a master of laws degree from Harvard University. Potts has had a distinguished career in higher education. Prior to joining ASU, he served as chancellor of the North Dakota University System. Previously, he served as president of the University of North Alabama in Florence, Ala., for more than 14 years, and prior to that was General Counsel of the University of Alabama System. During his first months at ASU-Jonesboro, Potts worked closely with the Faculty Senate in resolving issues of concern to the faculty, and planned for a major capital campaign and the University’s upcoming centennial celebration in 2009-2010. During the 2007-08 academic year, in addition to overseeing the process that led to the selection of Red Wolves as the new ASU mascot, he appointed seven task forces of faculty, staff, and students who have studied and made recommendations on major issues of importance to the future of the University. Many of those recommendations are now being implemented. The University is currently focused on increasing its enrollment through expansion of distance learning offerings and building a more robust international program, in addition to improving its facilities across the campus to make the campus more convenient and attractive to students. In addition, under Potts leadership, the University is taking steps to modernize and expand its curriculum and also to increase its research and sponsored program activities. As President of the University of North Alabama, his accomplishments included streamlining the administrative structure, implementing a shared governance decision making structure, raising admission standards, and establishing a development and advancement office. He and his administration also led the university's first capital campaign, established a Child Development Center, expanded the international students program, completed a campus master plan, and implemented several construction projects, including academic buildings, student recreation center, four residence halls, and others. While at UNA, Potts served a term as President of the Gulf South Athletic Conference, and University athletic teams won five Division II national championships. While with the North Dakota University System, Potts was chief executive officer for a statewide system that included 42,000 students on six four-year campuses and five twoyear campuses. Among the highlights of his work there, he provided leadership in creating a statewide collaboration plan for increasing the number of international students, in implementing a new higher education administrative software system, in continuing the highly acclaimed Higher Education Roundtable process that successfully aligned the higher education system with the needs of the state, and in implementing the first stage of a $50 million Economic Centers of Excellence program for system campuses. His list of professional activities is long, including membership in the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools' Commission on Colleges, on the board of the American Association of State Colleges and Universities, on the U.S. Department of Education's National Advisory Committee on Institutional Quality and Integrity, and on several accreditation teams. He also chaired the Secretary of the Army's ROTC Program Sub-Committee, which focused on improving the Army ROTC and Junior ROTC programs throughout the United States. He has also served terms on the boards of trustees of Alabama State University and Oakwood College. In addition to his administrative experience, he has taught at Boston University, University of Alabama, and University of North Alabama. Potts met his wife Irene, a native of Sweden, while they were participating in an international education program in England. They are the parents of two adult children. Julie Anna Potts and her husband, Parks Shackelford, live in the Washington, D.C. area where Julie Anna is general counsel for the American Farm Bureau Federation and Parks works for Florida Crystals, a sugar cane company. They have three children, Ella, Olivia, and Duke. Les Potts and his wife Holly also have two children, Claire and Anna Leslie. They live in Starkville, Miss., where he is employed at Mississippi State University and she is an active volunteer with Habitat for Humanity and other charitable organizations.

Dr. Dean Lee, Director of Athletics

The Lee Family (from left) Anna Pearl, Reba, Dean and Diamond

2008 ASU VOLLEYBALL MEDIA GUIDE

When the Arkansas State University athletics program reaches its 100th birthday in two years, Dean Lee's name will figure prominently in the celebration. ASU athletics is entering its 99th year and Lee still has a little more time to continue restoring the old and building new tradition for Arkansas State. Under Lee’s direction, the ASU athletic department enjoyed another significant year in 2007-08. Not only did ASU enjoy some of the most exciting moments ever on the fields, courts, and tracks, but also in the arenas of academics, donor and alumni involvement, community service and achievement. Lee was named the AAFF’s Outstanding Athletic Director in 2008 and serves on the NCAA Men’s Basketball Issues Committee, the BCS Athletic Directors Advisory Committee and the Division I-A Athletic Directors Association Board of Trustees. He has guided the athletic department to annual success academically and competitively, but last year ASU athletics once again enjoyed growth through a number of unique accomplishments and projects as well. For instance, 206 field-level seats and new party boxes available for corporate events were added to Tomlinson Stadium, the Convocation Center weight room underwent major renovations that included new weights and cardio equipment, festivities such as Jazz in Jonesboro continued to grow and improve, the women’s bowling team was the NCAA National Runner-up and Lee was instrumental in the recruitment and hiring of John Brady, who is just two years removed from an NCAA Final Four appearance, as the Red Wolves new men’s basketball coach. Those are just a few of the many ways the ASU athletic department continued to develop under Lee, who is always looking for new and creative ways to take the Red Wolves athletic program to the next level while maintaining its main focus on academics, competitive performance and a well-rounded environment for student-athletes. Entering his seventh year as Director of Athletics, Lee is even hungrier for ASU to have continued success in all areas. He has already made great strides in enabling Arkansas State's Department of Athletics to become one of the most respected programs around. Dr. Dean Lee became ASU's 10th Director of Athletics July 9, 2002. It wasn't long before the department began to experience important and progressive changes which were capped by an unprecedented “State of A-State” address in the spring of 2004. When he concluded the address to a packed house, there was no mistaking that he is committed to building a successful program at ASU. In a very short time, he has orchestrated sellout and capacity crowds, overseen the expansion and growth of ASU's athletic facilities, and provided sound leadership to both the athletic staff and population of student-athletes. Lee came to ASU from Oklahoma State University, where he was the executive director of the OSU Athletic Associates and assistant vice president of the OSU Foundation. His administrative experience at two NCAA Division I-A universities, OSU and the University of Arkansas, and his achievements in mobilizing financial support make him well-suited for Arkansas State University and Northeast Arkansas. In addition, Dr. Lee's experience as athletic director at Arkansas Tech University and his familiarity with ASU and the state of Arkansas help him feel right at home. He earned his bachelor's degree in 1979 and master's in education at Henderson State University, then completed his doctor of education degree at the University of Arkansas in 1989. Although born in Tulsa, Okla., Lee competed in high school sports in Berryville, Arkansas, and was selected to play in the all-Star basketball and football games in 1975. He also played basketball, baseball and tennis at Henderson State, where he later served as an assistant coach. He was head basketball coach at Malvern High School early in his career. Dean and wife Reba are the parents of two daughters, Diamond Olivia (13) and Anna Pearl (11).
