TY WIGGINTON INFIELDER UNC ASHEVILLE, 1998 Ty Wigginton played for UNC Asheville from 1996 through the 1998 season. His records at UNC Asheville include most doubles in a season with 26, most total bases in a season with 149 and most runs scored in a season with 67. In addition, he became the second player in school history to hit three home runs in a game with three against East Tennessee State and set a record for total bases in that game with 14.Ty also became the first UNC Asheville baseball player to be named National Player of the Week when he was honored after hitting eight home runs and driving in 20 runs during a six-game span. He was named as a first team all-conference performer at shortstop that season. Wigginton was drafted by the New York Mets in the 17th round in 1998 and worked hard in the Mets’ minor league system before getting a call in May of 2002 to report to the big leagues. On May 16, 2002, UNC Asheville had its first player in the major leagues when Ty played for the Mets in San Diego. Ty has enjoyed an interesting major league career that has seen him play for the New York Mets, Pittsburgh Pirates, Tampa Bay Devil Rays, Houston Astros, Baltimore Orioles, Colorado Rockies and this year the Philadelphia Phillies. A big highlight of his career came in the 2010 season when he selected by Yankee manager Joe Girardi to be on the American League All-Star team. Ty was inducted into the UNC Asheville and Big South Hall of Fame in 2011.

2006 NCAA BASEBALL TOURNAMENT

56


2006 CLEMSON REGIONAL David Lost, but Goliath Knows He was in a Fight. Reprinted from Asheville Citizen-Times- June 3, 2006 Not every time a David takes on a Goliath is David going to come out on top. When UNCA’s baseball Bulldogs won their first-ever invitation to the NCAA baseball tournament, the foe they drew was Clemson, the second-ranked team in the country. UNCA knew they were taking the role of David facing a formidable Goliath -- in Goliath’s back yard, no less. Still, the Bulldogs did themselves proud by keeping it close in a 3-0 loss before bowing out of the double elimination tournament with a 5-4 loss to Mississippi State. The heroics started before the team made it to the Clemson Regional. The Bulldogs fought through the field to play in the Big South Conference baseball tournament final against Liberty. Down 10-0 after the third inning, the Bulldogs staged a remarkable rally, scoring 16 runs over the final five innings for a 16-11 victory and an automatic bid to the NCAA tournament. Holding a team like Clemson to three runs or fewer -- a feat opponents

managed only seven times against the Tigers -- was a victory in itself. The 5-4 loss to Mississippi State was closely contested, as the Bulldogs had the bases loaded in the ninth inning but were unable to tie or take the lead. In addition to an outstanding showing against bigger, more-established programs, UNCA has good news for next season. After posting a record of 11-42 in the 2005 campaign, the Bulldogs went 28-35 in 2006, and loses only one senior (Charles Pippitt) who played a major role in their success. Next season could be even bigger and brighter for the baseball Bulldogs. Congratulations are in order for the UNCA athletics program, which seems to be on an upswing. Improved facilities, an active athletic director and a taste of success bode well for the future. Said UNCA coach Willie Stewart, a former UNCA player and 2000 graduate, “It hurts to lose, and we’re never happy when we don’t win. But I’m proud of how we competed against two great baseball teams. “We’ve faced a lot of adversity this year, but we never quit. We never quit here, either. I could not be more proud of these guys.” Neither could we.

UNC ASHEVILLE HALL OF FAME UNC Asheville’s Athletics Hall of Fame was established in 2003 and has had 10 classes inducted. A total of 34 athletes and administrators have been enshrined. Of those 34 inductees, three are former baseball players: Brian Shehan, Marc Rosenbaum, Ty Wiggington.

Brian Shehan (1987-90) Inducted in 2004 Brian Shehan produced one of the greatest baseball careers ever at UNC Asheville. He was an all-conference player at first base in the 1988 and 1989 seasons. In 1989, Brian set a single-season record for home runs (19), RBI (59), slugging percentage (.786), doubles (14) and total bases (140). He was ranked nationally in 1989 for home runs, RBI, slugging percentage and total bases. Brian finished his career as the school’s all-time leader in home runs (42), RBI (163), doubles (52) total bases (391) and batting average (.352). He currently holds seven different UNC Asheville hitting records. Brian was a four-year starter for the Bulldogs and was the second player in school history to be drafted by a major league team when the Montreal Expos drafted him in 1990.

Marc Rosenbalm (1988-91) Inducted in 2010 Marc Rosenbalm has remained UNC Asheville’s all-time leader in complete games (13), shutouts (4) and earned run average (3.21) for nearly two decades. He set the school’s season records for wins (11), shutouts (3), innings pitched (117.2) and complete games (11) as a senior in 1991 while being named first-team All-Big South and All-Tournament. He also led the Big South with a 1.50 ERA in 1990.

Ty Wiggington (1995-98) Inducted in 2011 Ty Wiggington played for UNC Asheville from 1996 through the 1998 season. His records at UNC Asheville include most doubles in a season with 26, most total bases in a season with 149 and most runs scored in a season with 67. In addition, he became the second player in school history to hit three home runs in a game with three against East Tennessee State and set a record for total bases in that game with 14. Ty also became the first UNC Asheville baseball player to be named National Player of the Week when he was honored after hitting eight home runs and driving in 20 runs during a six-game span. He was named as a first team all-conference performer at shortstop that season. Wigginton was drafted by the New York Mets in the 17th round in 1998 and worked hard in the Mets’ minor league system before getting a call in May of 2002 to report to the big leagues. On May 16, 2002, UNC Asheville had its first player in the major leagues when Ty played for the Mets in San Diego.

2006 BIG SOUTH CHAMPIONS

Down but Never Out

Reprinted from uncabulldogs.com- May 27, 2006

CONWAY, S.C. - Tournament Most Valuable Player Rob Vernon hit a grand slam in the eighth inning as UNC Asheville overcame a 10 run deficit to win the Big South Conference Tournament 16-11 over Liberty on Saturday night.

and two batters later Burnich singled to right center to move Pippitt to third. Mattison singled to center field to plate Pippitt. It marked the 17th consecutive game in which Mattison has gotten a hit, one shy of the UNC Asheville record held by head coach Willie Stewart and Tony Campana.

It is the Bulldogs (28-33) first ever Big South Championship in baseball and sends Asheville to its first ever NCAA Regional appearance. The baseball team becomes only the second UNC Asheville team to make a NCAA Tournament in any sport joining the 2003 men’s basketball team.

Asheville added another run in the top half of the seventh. Arrington led off with a walk and was moved to second on an Edmund Locklear walk. Vernon reached on a fieldier’s choice, moving Arrington to third. Pippitt hit a sacrifice fly to center field to plate Arrington.

“I give the guys a tremendous amount of credit,” said Stewart. We stuck together and never quit. This is a tremendous accomplishment, what we did this weekend. I could not be happier for these guys.”

Asheville took its first lead of the game in the top of the eighth. With one away, Burnich was hit by a pitch and moved over on a single by Mattison. Henson singled to load the bases. Burnich scored on a groundout by Arrington, moving Mattison to third and Henson to second. Locklear followed with a walk to load the bases.Vernon followed with a grand slam to clear the bases, his seventh home run of the year and the second grand slam for the Bulldogs this season.

The Flames (39-21) sent 13 men to the plate in the bottom of the second, scoring nine runs on eight hits to take the 9-0 lead. Chad Miller posted two RBI in the inning. Liberty added one run in the bottom of the third to push the lead to 10-0. With one out, Chad Miller moved to first on a walk and moved to second as Michael Just singled through the right side. Miller was caught stealing. Aaron Grijalva scored Just as he reached on an error. UNC Asheville moved four across in the top of the fifth to cut the lead to 10-4. With one out, John Whited singled and moved to second on a single by Kyle Smith. Steve Burnich followed with a double to left field, plating Whited and moving Smith to third. Kevin Mattison was hit by a pitch to load the bases. Matt Henson grounded out to the shortstop to score Smith, moving Mattison to second and Burnich to third. Elliot Arrington followed with a single to left to plate Burnich and Mattison.

The Bulldogs sent 11 people to plate to score five runs on five hits to push their lead to 16-10 win in the top of the ninth. Arrington highlighted the inning with a three RBI double to left center. Liberty scored one in the bottom of the ninth to cut the lead to 16-11 but that would be as close as they would get. UNC Ashevilles’s Alan DeRatt picked up his second win of the tournament and improves to 8-4, while the Flames’ Phillip Thompson took the loss, falling to 6-7 on the season. With the win, UNC Asheville picks up the Big South’s automatic bid and records its school record 28th victory of the season.

The Bulldogs chipped away at LU’s lead in the top of sixth, adding one run to move the score to 10-5. Charles Pippitt led off the inning with a walk,

THE BIG SOUTH CONFERENCE Since its founding in 1983, the Big South Conference has matured into a competitive leader in college athletics, actively pursuing excellence on the field of play and in the classroom. The League’s growing presence as an NCAA Division I athletic conference is evident by athletic accomplishments on the national stage, innovative marketing and media partnerships, increased television packages, and quality athletic competition while intentionally fostering the academic, personal, social, athletic and leadership development of each student-athlete. This has evolved into the Conference’s mission of “Developing Leaders Through Athletics.” The Big South Conference was formed on August 21, 1983, when Charleston Southern (then Baptist College) Athletic Director Howard Bagwell and Augusta President George Christenberry began recruiting members into the Big South, receiving initial commitments from Augusta, Charleston Southern, Campbell, Coastal Carolina and Winthrop. One month later, Dr. Edward M. Singleton was selected as the League’s first Commissioner and continued to solicit new members. His efforts led to the additions of Armstrong State, Radford and UNC Asheville, giving the Big South more than the required six members to constitute an official conference. The Big South’s first year of competition was in the Fall of 1984, and in September 1986, the Big South Conference was granted fullfledged NCAA Division I status. During its infancy and prior to securing automatic bids to NCAA Championships, the Big South made early strides in earning at-large berths in several national postseason events, including volleyball, women’s basketball and women’s golf. In 1989, George F.“Buddy” Sasser replaced the retiring Dr. Singleton as Commissioner, and in 1990, the League received its first automatic bid -- receiving an automatic qualifier to the NCAA Baseball Championship. Under Sasser’s seven years of leadership, the Conference implemented its public relations and compliance programs, and introduced its first-ever men’s basketball television package, featuring the Big South competing among some of the finest teams in the nation. In August 1996, Kyle B. Kallander replaced Sasser as the League’s third Commissioner, and in his 15 years at the helm of the Big South, Kallander has been instrumental in aggressively promoting the Conference to new heights. The Conference has enjoyed record levels in marketing revenue during the past several years, he has brought television coverage to Big South women’s basketball, baseball and softball for the first time in Conference history, as well as increased national television exposure to the League as a whole through aggressive and unique television packages. Under Kallander’s leadership, the Big South developed and initiated its first long-range strategic plan, re-affirming the League’s vision as a distinctive athletic Conference committed to the quality of institutional life through athletic competition. He also spearheaded the efforts to add football as a championship sport, which came to fruition in 2002, and oversaw the additions of men’s and women’s indoor track & field in 1997. The Conference’s 19th championship sport -- women’s lacrosse, will begin play in 2012-13 with seven members. At the same time, Kallander has solidified Conference membership, as an all-time high 11 member institutions comprise the 28-year League in 2011-12. Recent additions include High Point, Gardner-Webb and Presbyterian College, plus the return of charter member Campbell University this year. Kallander’s long range vision has also included technological advancements, as the Conference introduced its first live event video streaming in 2005 and has since expanded its video offerings to more than 700 events annually through a partnership with the member institutions, as well as the creation of several online and social media platforms.

In the last 15 years alone, the Big South Conference has experienced monumental growth and success in nearly every sport. During this time, the Conference has had an individual National Champion six times, more than 240 All-Americans, has reached the “Sweet 16” in men’s soccer, women’s basketball and baseball, has received national Top 25 rankings in football, men’s soccer, men’s basketball, women’s basketball, baseball, men’s outdoor track & field, and men’s golf, had an individual selected to play in the NCAA Singles Championship six times in addition to the first men’s tennis doubles at-large selection, had the first women’s golf program advance to the national finals, had the No. 1 ranked men’s golfer in the country, has had the nation’s top scoring men’s basketball team five consecutive years as well as the national men’s basketball scoring leader twice, received an at-large playoff berth in the Football Championship Subdivision in 2006, has had four NFL Draft picks, and had an institution finish fifth in the NCAA Men’s Golf Championships - the Conference’s highest-ever team finish in an NCAA event. In 2006-07, the Big South was the only Conference nationwide to have an at-large participant in the football playoffs (Coastal Carolina), a team in the Second Round of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament (Winthrop) and a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Baseball Regionals (Coastal Carolina). In fact, Coastal Carolina’s baseball program has been a No. 1 seed four out of the last seven years - including a national seed for the first time in 2010, while the Chanticleers’ FCS playoff berth in 2006 came in just the fifth-year of the Big South’s football existence. The 2009-10 season saw Liberty’s Sam Chelanga win two NCAA National Championships (cross country, 10,000-meter run), Coastal Carolina’s baseball team reach the Super Regionals for the second time in three years as well as being ranked No. 1 in the national RPI and as high as No. 3 in the national polls; and three women’s basketball teams reach the postseason for the first time in Conference history. Last season, Chelanga won two more NCAA National Championships (cross country, outdoor 5,000-meter run), the Big South had its first automatic bid recipient in football (Coastal Carolina), UNC Asheville reached the Second Round of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament, Coastal Carolina’s women’s golf team was the first in Conference history to advance to the NCAA Championship out of Regional play, and a League-record 18 baseball players were drafted in the 2011 MLB First-Year Player Draft. Several former Big South student-athletes have also reached national prominence in recent years. Coastal Carolina’s Amber Campbell made the 2008 U.S. Olympic Team - one of five former Big South athletes to compete in the Games; VMI’s Reggie Williams reached the NBA with the Golden State Warriors in 2010, UNC Asheville’s Ty Wigginton was named an American League All-Star in 2010, and Coastal Carolina’s Dustin Johnson has won four PGA Tour events since departing the Big South Conference in 2007 and tied for runner-up at the 2011 Open Championship. The Conference’s tagline, “Developing Leaders Through Athletics” was unveiled in 2008-09 in conjunction with the Conference’s 25th Anniversary. The League also honored its heritage with the Top 25 “Best of the Best” moments in League history from 1983-2008, with Liberty University’s 10-year women’s basketball championship run from 19962007 being crowned the No. 1 moment in the Big South’s first 25 years. The Conference’s on-field accomplishments have been duplicated in the classroom. Annually, more than 40 percent of Conference student-athletes are named to the Big South’s Presidential Honor Roll for maintaining a cumulative 3.0 grade-point average, and the League has had more than 95 Academic All-Americans in its 27 years of existence. Furthermore, the Big South has a record number of NCAA Public Recognition Awards for APR progress the last two years.

He majored in literature, but it was his history classes and the magic of the mountains of nearby Madison County that inspired Wiley Cash’s first novel, “A Land More Kind Than Home.”

As a businessperson, she’s a local leader. As a philanthropist, she is a force of nature. And Jennifer Mayer’s achievements are far more inspiring when you know her backstory.

Degrees from UNC Asheville have launched thousands of successful careers, like that of Wasim Al-Abed, sales manager for FLS Energy of Asheville, one of the nation’s fastestgrowing solar energy firms.

Cash’s novel debuted on the New York Times Best Seller list last year and promptly won praise by reviewers in USA Today, Vanity Fair and O Magazine. “My Appalachian history professor at UNC Asheville, Dan Pierce, made the mountains come alive for me, their history, their people, culture and mystery.”

By the age of 16, Mayer already had lived a hard life. She was waitressing double shifts to support herself, and she could only read at the secondgrade level. But at the urging of a close friend, she enrolled in a literacy program and eventually earned a high school GED. Later, Mayer enrolled at UNC Asheville where she pursued a degree in psychology. Today, she is the owner and CEO of Charlotte Street Computers, one of Asheville’s busiest independent computer shops.

This rapidly evolving industry needs employees who can think critically and solve problems that have never been encountered before. So when FLS Energy needed a team leader who could make the links between economics, science, policy and environmental impact, they turned to this UNC Asheville business and marketing graduate. That’s the power of the liberal arts. “At UNC Asheville,” says Al-Abed, “I learned with students whose creativity and passion were out of this world.”

fAll About UNC Asheville Athletics Competitive Spirit Men’s BasketballfThe best program in the Big South Conference over the past six seasons. Asheville has gone to post-season play three times during that period. The Bulldogs have gone to the NIT (2008) once and twice gone to the NCAA Tournament (2011, 2012). Asheville’s overall record during that time is 113-82 (.579). Our record inside the Big South Conference is 68-34 (.667). We own wins over four BCS schools—South Carolina, Auburn, Utah and St. John’s in the last six years. The men’s basketball program has a legacy of strong coaches including Bob Hartman, Jerry Green, Don Doucette, Randy Wiel and Eddie Biedenbach who led the Bulldogs to four Big South Conference Championship Titles.

VolleyballfOne of the most consistent programs in the Big South over the last 11 years. From 2002 through last year, Asheville has posted eight winning seasons and never finished lower than sixth place in the Big South Conference during that period. We have two Big South regularseason championships and been to the league title game three times. The overall record during the past 11 seasons is 194-142 (.577). In league play, the record is 104-61 (.631). Coach Fredrico Santos leads the team. A UNC Asheville graduate, Santos has extensive international coaching experience with stops in Brazil, Iceland, Poland and Switzerland before returning home to his alma mater.

Women’s SoccerfAnother consistent program over the years. From 1995 through last season, our women’s soccer program has won two Big South Conference championships (1995 & 2006), two regular-season

championships (2004 & 2005) and advanced to the league championship game seven different times (1995, 1996, 1998, 2002, 2003, 2005, 2006). This season team won three of its final four matches and had two players recognized by the National Soccer Coaches Association for their work in the classroom. The team is led by Michelle Demko, an outstanding coach, who was selected in the spring of 2012 to help train the U.S. Under-20 Women’s National team and as an assistant coach for the Under-23 Women’s National Team.

Men’s TennisfThe Bulldog men’s tennis program has enjoyed its best success in more than a decade the past two seasons. Last season we finished in second place in the Big South, the highest regular-season finish the Bulldogs have ever had. On the academic side, they have been recognized by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association three times in the last four years. Under the direction of Coach Lise Gregory and former LSU standout Tom Hand, we have recorded winning seasons the past two years and will be competing for a Big South Conference championship this year

Women’s TennisfOur women’s tennis team will enjoy its third winning season in the last five years this season. Head Coach Lise Gregory is one of the top coaches in the country and has rebuilt the program two different times. Our team this season is made up of sophomores and freshmen and won more matches than last season at the half-way point of the year. On the academic side, this program has been recognized for its work in the classroom by the ITA for five consecutive years.


fAll About UNC Asheville Athletics Competitive Spirit Men’s & Women’s Cross CountryfBoth cross country programs have been steadily improving under the direction of Western Carolina graduate Jesse Norman. This past year had both teams finishing in fifth place in the 12-team Big South Conference. It marked the best finish for both squads in eight years.

Track and FieldfBoth programs have had some great individual performers over the past three years and are slowly building solid programs. Jesse Norman is the coach for these programs as well. Natalie Pearson went to the NCAA Outdoor Championships in 2010 and 2011 in the 200 meters and earned Honorable Mention AllAmerican honors. She just missed qualifying for the Great Britain Olympic team last summer. This past year saw Milan Ristic qualify for the NCAA Indoor Track Championships in the hurdles and finished 13th overall. Coach Jesse Norman’s excellent leadership led him to be named Big South Coach of the year in 2011.

BaseballfUNC Asheville Bulldogs Baseball has improved steadily under the leadership of head coach Tom Smith. Last year, we won 25 games and finished in fourth place in the Big South Conference after being a preseason pick to finish in last place. Highlights included winning a series at College of Charleston late in the season and 12 conference victories. We presently have one player in the major leagues in Ty Wigginton and one who went to spring training with the Florida Marlins in Kevin Mattison. We have two other players – Ryan Dull and Justin Schumer – who are in the minor leagues.

Women’s BasketballfWe are going through a rebuilding phase after winning the Big South Championship in 2007. We have hired former Florida assistant and Waynesville native Brenda Mock Kirkpatrick as our head coach. She inherited a tough situation this past year and then had five potential starters suffer season-ending injuries. However, our team battled hard to the end without anyone quitting the team. We believe our program is in great shape and will be turning the corner immediately as she and her staff signed four excellent recruits in the fall.

Women’s SwimmingfWe brought women’s swimming back after having a co-ed program in the mid-70s. We are members of the Coastal Collegiate Swimming Association. In our first year with just eight swimmers, we finished in ninth place at the championship meet as we finished in front of four others teams with a full roster. In the fall semester, the team was honored by College Swim Coaches Association of America for a 3.22 GPA. Former College of Charleston MVP Elizabeth Lykins leads the team.

Men’s SoccerfWe expect to be better in men’s soccer this fall than we have been the past few years. They have certainly done the work in the classroom. Junior Bobby Castro was named to the Capital One Academic All-District 3 Men's Soccer Division I team by the College Sports Information Directors of America last fall. In addition, they were given a NSCAA Team Academic Award last fall with a 3.16 GPA. Matt Kern is in his third year as head coach.

UNC ASHEVILLE CHANCELLOR - DR. ANNE PONDER Dr. Anne Ponder became the sixth Chancellor of the University of North Carolina at Asheville in October 2005 after serving for 10 years as president of Colby-Sawyer College in New London, N.H. A nationally known expert on strategic planning, she began her UNC Asheville tenure by leading a campus-wide collaboration to create a dynamic and viable strategic plan and revised mission statement; she then established a dashboard that measures UNC Asheville’s progress toward the strategic plan goals, with a continued emphasis on quality and sustainability. With this focus, UNC Asheville has made major strides as a national leader in the liberal arts and has become one of the top choices for students seeking a rigorous and multi-faceted educational experience.

American Council on Education’s book Leading America’s Branch Campuses.

During Chancellor Ponder’s tenure, the university was chosen as the first national headquarters for the Council of Public Liberal Arts Colleges. Several new majors from anthropology to religious studies, art history to jazz and contemporary music have been added to the curriculum.The academic profile and diversity of the student body, as well as the proportion of students living on campus, increased to their highest levels during this time. The university received its 10-year re-affirmation of accreditation from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools in 2012 with no major findings, one recommendation, and high praise from the assessment committee.

In 2011, UNC Asheville celebrated the dedication of the Wilma M. Sherrill Center, which houses academic and outreach programs focused on disease prevention and healthy living, as well as the 3,800-seat Kimmel Arena.This $41 million project was funded through a $35-million state appropriation in 2004 and an additional $6 million in private gifts and grants. It is the largest construction project ever undertaken at UNC Asheville.

A hallmark of Chancellor Ponder’s tenure at UNC Asheville is her commitment to strengthening the university’s outreach and partnerships with Western North Carolina communities and businesses, as well as with sister UNC institutions. She has encouraged innovative collaboration that resulted in a UNC-Chapel Hill Eshelman School of Pharmacy satellite program in Asheville. New partnerships with local governments, scientific agencies and nonprofit organizations have resulted in agreements with Mission Health System, the City of Asheville, the Renaissance Computing Institute and others for enhanced learning and research opportunities for students and faculty. The university is a founding member of the AshevilleBuncombe Regional Sports Commission, a major contributor to the region’s economic development. This emphasis on collaboration also led to the cultivation, with other campus and community leaders, of some of the largest multi-million dollar donations in the university’s history. An Economic Impact Study completed for 2012 revealed that UNC Asheville’s economic impact on the region was $268 million.

Chancellor Ponder has overseen the largest building program in UNC Asheville’s history – most recently Overlook Hall, home to more than 300 students. The new residence hall boosts the number of students living on campus from 35 percent to more than 40 percent and is one of the “greenest” buildings on campus with cutting-edge sustainability features including geothermal heating and cooling. Other major building projects have included the New Hall classroom building, Sam Millar Facilities Management Complex, Zeis Science and Multimedia Building, and the Wilma M. Sherrill Center, which houses the North Carolina Center for Health & Wellness and Kimmel Arena. Major renovations have been made to Rhoades Hall and several residence halls. These efforts, combined with countless others across campus, have earned the university repeated recognition as a model of sustainability among UNC institutions and across the state. In 2010, the university opened the Janice W. Brumit Pisgah House, which serves as a location for university-sponsored events, meetings receptions and dinners, and also is the Chancellor’s residence. The $2.9-million multi-purpose building, required of all UNC campuses, was funded by private donations.

The university also expanded its campus boundaries under Chancellor Ponder’s leadership, purchasing several nearby properties including the 10-acre Rhoades property in 2008, which was the first major gift/ purchase of property for the campus since moving to its current location in 1961. The property now hosts a community garden and residence for the Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs, both of which are favorite gathering places for students. Other acquisitions have included a 10-acre parcel adjacent to campus on Broadway Avenue which is being developed as a part of Asheville’s greenway to link campus and downtown. In 2013, UNC Asheville acquired adjacent acreage and the health facility formerly owned by MAHEC on W.T.Weaver Boulevard, which will house an expanded Student Health and Counseling Center and the offices for University Advancement and Alumni Relations. Chancellor Ponder earned her bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees in English from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She was the first woman and first pre-tenure professor at Elon University to receive the Daniels-Danieley Award for Excellence in Teaching. During her nine years at Elon, she taught English and communications. She then held faculty and administrative posts at Guilford College in North Carolina, where she was an associate professor of English and interdisciplinary studies and served as associate academic dean. In her next appointment at Kenyon College in Ohio, she served as professor of English and drama, academic dean, and vice president for information technology. In 1995, she was selected to become president at Colby-Sawyer College, a private liberal arts college in New Hampshire.

Chancellor Ponder is a national leader in higher education garnering accolades for her athletic administration and academic leadership as well. In 2013, she received the inaugural Van Ummersen Presidential Leadership Award from the National Association of Collegiate Women Athletics Administrators, in recognition of her demonstrated leadership and promotion of women’s opportunities in athletics administration and In addition to serving UNC Asheville, Chancellor Ponder is a memcoaching.
