Shawn Head Coach • Fourth Season Cal State San Bernardino ‘95

Shawn Garus begins his fourth season at the helm of the UNC Greensboro volleyball program in 2008. Garus is the fifth head coach in UNCG’s history. UNCG continued to make significant strides under Garus’ leadership in 2007. Following a 23-13 performance in 2006, Garus guided the Spartans to a 20-15 overall record, marking consecutive winning seasons in UNCG’s Division I era for the first time since Tere Dail guided the Spartans to five straight winning seasons from 1991-95. The team also made its second straight appearance in the Southern Conference championship game, which was a first for the program. Multiple individual and team accomplishments took place during the 2007 campaign. Branagan Fuller set a new mark for kills in a three-game match with 27 coming against Western Carolina on Oct. 14. Later in the season also against Western Carolina, Lisa Fawell put up a record 68 assists in the four-game match and the Spartans finished that match with 73 assists, tying the team four-game match mark. Meanwhile, Fuller and Catherine Hanners posted new single-season marks for kills and digs, respectively. Fuller tallied 543 kills on the season, surpassing Theresa Hart’s mark of 534 that was set in 2006. Hanners, who became UNCG’s single-season digs leader in 2006, upped her single-season total to 684. The Spartans also saw Kaitlyn Nortz become the seventh Spartan to reach the 1,000-kill plateau and is currently fourth all-time with 1,159 kills. The season ended with Nortz receiving Second Team All-SoCon honors. Both Nortz and Fuller were selected to the SoCon All-Tournament Team as well as the North Carolina Sports Information Directors Association All-State volleyball team. Garus and the Spartans had a record-breaking season in 2006 which culminated in a run to the SoCon championship match, which was quite impressive for a team that had never won a match in the SoCon tournament prior to last year. Improvement was the name of the game in 2006 as the club posted a 23-13 overall record after going 5-26 a year earlier. UNCG set several new program marks in 2006. As a team, UNCG set a new record of kills in a three-game match, tallying 67 kills against Georgia Southern, and they also served up a new record for service aces in a three-game match by recording 16 twice during the season. Catherine Hanners and Lisa Fawell set single-season records for digs (653) and assists (1,683) while senior Theresa Hart set a new single season mark for kills with 534. To cap the season, Hart was named to the All-SoCon first team, becoming the first Spartan to ever be selected to the All-SoCon team. Hart was also named to the All-Tournament team along with teammate Kaitlyn Nortz. UNCG posted a 5-26 record during the 2005 season. At first glance that mark may not look all that impressive, but just the previous season the program only won

three matches. Improvement was also evident within the SoCon as the Spartans posted two victories in that season, compared to none in 2004. Under the guidance of Garus in 2005, the club defeated league member Davidson for the first time in eight seasons, while also sweeping The Citadel in three games. Late in the season, the Spartans showed great resiliency by coming back from a 2-0 deficit to win a thrilling match, 3-2, at Liberty. A 1995 graduate of California State University, San Bernardino, Garus served as the top assistant coach on the staff at the University of San Francisco during the 2003 and 2004 seasons under head coach Jeff Nelson. During Garus’ tenure at USF, the Dons compiled a mark of 35-27, including the programs first-ever NCAA Tournament bid in 2003. During the 2003 season, the Dons went 23-8, suffering all eight losses to teams ranked in the Top 25. In addition, the school earned its first victory over a ranked-opponent, winning on the road at 19thranked Washington State. It was also USF’s first 20-win season and followed a three-year period in-which the Dons had gone just 27-54. Prior to USF, Garus spent one season on Nelson’s staff at Texas Tech and served as a head coach at the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs. At UCCS, Garus led the NCAA Division II squad to a 44-56 mark in three-plus seasons, including its first regional ranking. The Mountain Lions’ 22-9 mark in 2001 was the best record in school history and resulted in their first trip to the conference tournament. He took over the program in the middle of the 1998 season after serving the first half of the year as an assistant coach. In his first full season (1999), he led the squad to its first 10-win season in five years with a 10-20 mark. The following year, the Mountain Lions went 10-14, including a school-best six wins in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference, before their record-breaking 22-9 campaign in 2001. He also held administrative duties as the school’s NCAA compliance director, and is still regarded as one of top coaches to have served in any sport at the University. At Cal State San Bernardino, Garus played four years on the University’s club volleyball team (1991-94). He graduated with a bachelor’s degree in business administration with a marketing specialization in 1995. Garus also played professionally from 1994-2003, playing in several AVP Tour events (Association of Volleyball Professionals). He was the top-ranked volleyball player in the state of Colorado from 1999-2001 and had a career-best 13th-place finish at the 2001 AVP Michigan Open. Garus, who was born in Glendale, CA, and his wife, the former Cindy Bench, have a daughter, Emily, and a son, Trevor. The family resides in Greensboro.


Skydra

Katherine

Assistant Coach• Fourth Season Texas Tech ‘02

Student Asst. Coach • First Season

Skydra Orzen begins her fourth season as a full-time assistant coach at UNC Greensboro. Orzen assists with all aspects of the program and primarily works with the setters and the Spartans defense. In 2007, Orzen helped guide the Spartans to two feats that had not been accomplished since UNCG joined the Southern Conference. First, the Spartans had their second straight winning season, posting a record of 20-15. Second, UNCG advanced to the SoCon championship match for the second year in a row. During her second season she helped the Spartans to a record-breaking season. UNCG posted a 23-13 record and had a run to the Southern Conference championship match after never before winning a match at the SoCon Championship. In Orzen’s first season with the team UNCG posted a 5-26 record during the 2005 season. At first glance that mark may not look all that impressive, but consider that the program only won three matches the previous season. Improvement was also evident within the Southern Conference as the Spartans posted two victories, compared to none in 2004. Orzen, a 2002 graduate of Texas Tech with a bachelor’s degree in English, is no stranger to Garus. Following the completion of her collegiate playing career, she was a student assistant coach while Garus was an assistant coach at Texas Tech. A native of Albuquerque, NM, Orzen was a three-year starter as a setter while attending Texas Tech. She ranked among the nation’s assists per game leaders during her final two seasons. Orzen averaged 14.12 assists per game during her junior season, ranking 12th in the nation. As a senior, she ranked second in assists per game with a 13.99 average. Orzen also set several records during her career with the Red Raiders. She initially set the single-season assist record (1,652) as a junior, only to break the mark a year later with 1,665 assists. Orzen also holds the single-match assist record (93 vs. Missouri). She remains the only Texas Tech player to reach the 90-assist plateau, a feat she accomplished three times in her career. After graduating from Texas Tech, Orzen played one season professionally in Holland for the Amvj Club. She also spent one season helping coach the men’s Amvj club team and was a volunteer assistant at the University of New Mexico. In high school, Orzen was a four-time all-city and a two-time all-state selection and was the Gatorade Player of the Year for the state of New Mexico in 1998 while playing at West Mesa HS.

Katherine Hart enters her first year as a student assistant coach for UNC Greensboro after completing her collegiate eligibility with the Spartans last season. In her only season for UNCG, Hart played in 127 games and appeared in all 35 matches. She totaled 320 kills on the season and averaged 2.52 kills per game, ranking third on the team in both categories. She reached double-digits in kills 17 times with a career best 21 coming against Furman. Defensively, Hart was third on the team in total blocks with 68. She recorded a career high five total blocks versus both Morgan State and Appalachian State. Prior to UNCG, Hart played for the University of San Francisco. In her three-year career with the Dons, she appeared in 82 games and 47 matches. Hart posted 112 kills and 49 total blocks. Hart will assist in practice and match preparation as she works towards her degree in fine arts with an emphasis in painting.

The Southern Conference, which began its 88th season of intercollegiate competition in 2008, is a national leader in emphasizing the development of the student-athlete and in helping to build lifelong leaders and role models. The Southern Conference has been on the forefront of innovation and originality in developing creative solutions to address issues facing intercollegiate athletics. From establishing the first conference basketball tournament (1921), tackling the issue of freshmen eligibility (1922), developing women’s championships (1984) and becoming the first conference to install the three-point goal in basketball (1980), the Southern Conference has been a pioneer. The Southern Conference is the nation’s fifth-oldest NCAA Division I collegiate athletic association. Only the Big Ten (1896), the Missouri Valley (1907), the Pacific 10 (1915) and the Southwestern Athletic (1920) conferences are older in terms of origination. Academic excellence has been a major part of the Southern Conference’s tradition. Hundreds of Southern Conference student-athletes have been recognized on ESPN The Magazine/CoSIDA Academic All-America and all-district teams. A total of 19 Rhodes Scholarship winners have been selected from conference institutions. The Conference currently consists of 12 members in five states throughout the Southeast and sponsors 19 varsity sports and championships that produce participants for NCAA Division I Championships. The Southern Conference offices are located in the historic Beaumont Mill in Spartanburg, S.C. A textile mill that was in operation from 1880 until 1999, Beaumont Mill was renovated in 2004 and today offers the league first class meeting areas and offices as well as a spacious library for storage of the conference’s historical documents. On Feb. 25, 1921, representatives from 14 of the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Association’s (SIAA) 30 members met at Atlanta’s Piedmont Hotel to establish the Southern Intercollegiate Conference. On hand at the inaugural meeting were officials from Alabama, Alabama Polytechnic Institute (Auburn), Clemson, Georgia, Georgia School of Technology (Georgia Tech), Kentucky, Maryland, Mississippi A&M (Mississippi State), North Carolina, North Carolina State, Tennessee, Virginia, Virginia Polytechnic Institute (Virginia Tech) and Washington & Lee. Dr. S.V. Sanford of Georgia was chosen as acting chairman and N.W. Dougherty of Tennessee was named secretary. The decision to form a new athletic conference was motivated by the desire to have a workable number of conference games for each league member. With 30 schools in the SIAA by the early 1920s, it was impossible to play every school at least once during the regular season and many schools went several years between playing some conference members. In addition, in 1920, the SIAA voted down proposed rules that an athlete must be in a college a year before playing on its teams and refused to abolish a rule permitting athletes to play summer baseball for money. Play began in the fall of 1921 and a year later, six more schools joined the fledgling league including Tulane (which had attended the inaugural meeting but had elected not to join), Florida, Louisiana (LSU), Mississippi, South Carolina and Vanderbilt. VMI joined in 1925 and Duke was added in 1929. By the 1930s, membership in the Southern Conference had reached 23 schools. C.P. “Sally” Miles of Virginia Tech, president of the Southern Conference, called the annual league meeting to order on Dec. 9, 1932 at the Farragut Hotel in Knoxville, Tenn. Georgia’s Dr. Sanford announced that 13 institutions west and south of the Appalachian Mountains were reorganizing as the Southeastern Conference. Members of the new league included Alabama, Alabama Polytechnic Institute, Florida, Georgia, Georgia School of Technology, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Mississippi A&M, University of the South, Tennessee, Tulane and Vanderbilt. According to the minutes of the meeting, Dr. Sanford

stated that the division was made along geographical lines. Florida’s Dr. J.J. Tigert, acting as spokesman for the withdrawing group, regretted the move but believed it was necessary as the Southern Conference had grown too large. The resignations were accepted and the withdrawing schools formed the new league which began play in 1932. The Southern Conference continued with membership of 10 institutions including Clemson, Duke, Maryland, North Carolina, North Carolina State, South Carolina, Virginia, VMI, Virginia Tech and Washington & Lee. The second major shift occurred some 20 years later. By 1952, the Southern Conference included 17 colleges and universities. Another split occurred when seven schools including Clemson, Duke, Maryland, North Carolina, North Carolina State, South Carolina and Wake Forest departed to form the Atlantic Coast Conference which began play in 1953. The revamped Southern Conference included members The Citadel, Davidson, Furman, George Washington, Richmond, VMI, Virginia Tech, Washington & Lee, West Virginia and William & Mary. Today, the league continues to thrive with a membership that includes 12 institutions and a footprint that spans five states: Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, Alabama and Georgia. Current league members are Appalachian State, College of Charleston, The Citadel, Davidson, Elon, Furman, Georgia Southern, UNC Greensboro, Samford, Chattanooga, Western Carolina and Wofford. John Iamarino was officially named commissioner of the conference on January 2, 2006. Iamarino has promoted the Southern Conference through an ambitious agenda which has improved competition, upgraded compliance-related matters and increased the marketing and brand awareness of the conference and its member institutions. The Southern Conference named its first commissioner in December 1950. Duke head football coach Wallace Wade made the transition from Blue Devil football coach to athletics administration as the first person at the helm of the conference. Lloyd Jordan replaced Wade as the commissioner in 1960 and served a 14-year term until Ken Germann became the league head in 1974. Germann was the commissioner for 13 years and orchestrated the league’s expansion to include women’s athletics. In 1987, he was succeeded by Dave Hart who spearheaded the transfer of the league office from Charlotte, N.C., to Asheville, N.C. Wright Waters succeeded Hart upon his retirement in 1991. Under Waters’ leadership, the Southern Conference expanded to 12 members, added three women’s sports and posted record revenue from the basketball tournament. Waters, who is currently the commissioner of the Sun Belt Conference, was followed by Alfred B. White in 1998. White, a veteran member of the NCAA office, introduced the current conference logo and elevated the conference’s commitment to marketing and development of corporate partners. Danny Morrison headed the conference from 20012005 and orchestrated the league’s move from Asheville, N.C. to Spartanburg, S.C. Under Morrison’s leadership, the conference increased its marketing and promotional efforts. The first Southern Conference Championship was the league basketball tournament held in Atlanta in 1922. The North Carolina Tar Heels won the tournament to become the first recognized league champion in any sport. The Southern Conference Tournament remains the oldest of its kind in college basketball. Commissioner Germann spearheaded the Southern Conference’s expansion to include women’s athletics during the 1983-84 season. That year, league championships were held in volleyball, basketball and tennis. Cross country joined the mix in 1985 and the league began holding indoor and outdoor track championships in 1988. Most recently, the conference instituted golf and softball championships in the spring of 1994 and added soccer in the fall of 1994. The Germann Cup, named in honor of the former com-

John Iamarino Commissioner www.soconsports.com missioner, annually recognizes the top women’s athletics programs in the conference. From its humble beginnings, women’s athletics have become an integral part of the Southern Conference and its success. The Southern Conference declares champions in 10 men’s sports - football, soccer, cross country, basketball, indoor track and field, outdoor track and field, wrestling, baseball, tennis and golf - and nine women’s sports - soccer, volleyball, cross country, basketball, indoor track and field, outdoor track & field, tennis, golf and softball. The Southern Conference has also excelled as the premier Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) conference. Southern Conference member Appalachian State has won the last three FCS titles becoming the first team to do so. The league boasts more than 250 players who have garnered All-America recognition and numerous national player or coach of the year awards. The conference has had at least one team in the Top 10 of the final FCS poll for 23 consecutive years with at least two teams finishing in the Top 20 in every season since 1982. The conference has placed multiple representatives in the FCS Playoffs in 21-of-25 seasons, with 16 Championship Game appearances and eight national titles. The Southern Conference has had at least one team reach the semifinals in nine of the last 10 years and in 15 of the last 17 seasons. In 2007, Appalachian State became the first FCS team to defeat a nationally-ranked Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) team when the Mountaineers defeated No. 5-ranked Michigan, 34-32, on Sept. 1 before a sellout crowd at Michigan Stadium. Prior to the conference’s reclassification in 1981, Southern Conference football teams appeared in a total of 34 bowl games, posting a record of 16-17-2. There are nearly 40 former Southern Conference players in the College Football Hall of Fame. One of the most recognizable of these names is former North Carolina running back Charlie “Choo Choo” Justice who helped guide North Carolina to three bowl appearances. He was a first team All-America selection in 1948 and 1949. In 1949, Justice earned first team all-conference honors for the fourth consecutive season, becoming the first player in league history to achieve that feat. Another of the league’s football products that made it to the College Football Hall of Fame is Sam Huff of West Virginia. Huff was a three-year starter on both the offensive and defensive lines for the Mountaineers. In 1955, Huff earned first team All-America honors on the field and was a first team Academic All-America for his work in the classroom. He played 12 seasons in the National Football League for the New York Giants and the Washington Redskins. He was a five-time All-Pro defensive lineman and is also a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame. In recent years, the Southern Conference has continued to produce outstanding student-athletes. In 1999, Georgia Southern’s Adrian Peterson captured the Walter Payton Award presented annually to the Football Championship Subdivision’s most outstanding offensive player. Furman’s Louis Ivory was awarded the honor in 2000 and Georgia Southern’s Jayson Foster was presented with the 2007 trophy. Appalachian State’s Dexter Coakley was a three-time


all-conference selection and consensus All-America in 1994, ’95 and ’96 before going on to stardom with the Dallas Cowboys. Coakley won a pair of Buck Buchanan Awards, given to Football Championship Subdivision’s top defensive player each year. Terrell Owens went from catching passes at Chattanooga to a stellar NFL career. Western Carolina’s David Patten and Appalachian State’s Matt Stevens were both members of the New England Patriots Super Bowl Champion team in 2002 and Patten also earned Super Bowl rings with the Patriots in 2004 and ’05. Men’s basketball was the first sport in which the conference held a championship. The league tournament is the nation’s oldest, with the inaugural championship held at Atlanta’s City Auditorium in 1922 and was won by North Carolina. Not only was the Southern Conference Tournament the first of its kind, the league also helped change the face of college basketball. In 1980, the league began a seasonlong experiment with a 22-foot three-point field goal with the approval of the NCAA Rules Committee. Ronnie Carr of Western Carolina made the first three-point field goal in college basketball history in a game against Middle Tennessee State on Nov. 29, 1980. Another college basketball tradition that originated in the Southern Conference is the traditional cutting of the nets by the winning team. According to USA Today, the practice of net cutting originated in 1947 with North Carolina State head coach Everett Case. As a first-year head coach, Case led the Wolfpack to the Southern Conference Tournament title. Case celebrated by claiming the nets as a souvenir of the win to commemorate the event. Basketball coaching legend Red Auerbach gives credit to former George Washington coach Bill Reinhart, who coached in the conference for nearly 30 years, as one of the originators of the modern fast-break. West Virginia’s 10 tournament championships are still the most in league history. The Mountaineers were led by the incomparable Jerry West from 1958 through ’60. West, a two-time All-America selection, spurred West Virginia to the Final Four in 1959. The Mountaineers lost in the championship game that season to California, 71-70, but West earned Final Four Most Valuable Player honors. West was a three-time Southern Conference tournament MVP, a twotime league regular season MVP, and was twice named the conference’s Athlete of the Year. He went on to a spectacular career with the Los Angeles Lakers of the National Basketball Association and was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 1979. He was a 14-time NBA All-Star while with the Lakers. It is West’s silhouette that comprises the NBA’s globally recognized logo. Selvy set the NCAA record for points in a game while at Furman. On Feb. 13, 1954, the senior scored 100 points in a game against Newberry, a record that still stands. Selvy was the Southern Conference Most Valuable Player in 1953 and 1954 and the league’s Athlete of the Year in 1954. He went on to a 10-year career in the NBA. Rod Hundley was another West Virginia star during the 1950s. “Hot Rod” made a name for himself as one of the most spectacular players to tour the league during his era. Hundley averaged 24.5 points per game in his three seasons as a Mountaineer and was an all-conference and alltournament performer in each of those three years. He was the Southern Conference Most Valuable Player and Athlete of the Year as a senior in 1957. He was the first player selected in the 1957 NBA draft and enjoyed a six-year career in that league. East Tennessee State’s Keith “Mister” Jennings made his mark on the college basketball world in the early 1990s. Despite standing less than six feet tall, Jennings was a twotime all-conference choice and the league’s Player of the Year and Athlete of the Year in 1991. Jennings played with the Golden State Warriors of the NBA. Besides West Virginia’s team in 1959, the Southern Conference has been represented in the Final Four on two

other occasions. North Carolina advanced to the NCAA championship game in 1943 before falling 43-40 to Oklahoma State. North Carolina State finished third in the tournament in 1950. Davidson continued the record of success by advancing to the NCAA Tournament’s Elite Eight in 2008 and coach Bob McKillop’s Wildcats came within a basket of making the Final Four behind the play of sophomore guard Stephen Curry. Women’s basketball competition began in the Southern Conference in 1983-84 with seven teams. In the sport’s history, seven schools have won the league’s tournament at least once with Chattanooga winning 12 and Appalachian State owning six titles. UNC Greensboro won the 1998 tournament as head coach Lynne Agee became the first coach to take a team to the NCAA Tournament in all three Divisions - I, II and III. In 2001, Chattanooga head coach Wes Moore became the first coach in NCAA history to take three different teams to the NCAA Tournament in all three Divisions. Since 1984, seven different teams have claimed at least a share of the regular season crown. Chattanooga has the most overall titles with 13, six of them shared. Chattanooga owns the most outright championships with seven. Only four players have won the conference Player of the Year award twice: East Tennessee State’s DeShawne Blocker in 1992-93 and 1994-95; Furman’s Jackie Smith, 1997-98 and 1998-99; Chattanooga’s Damita Bullock, who won the award in 2000 and 2001; and Chattanooga’s Alex Anderson in 2007 and 2008. In baseball, Wake Forest advanced to the championship game of the NCAA College World Series in 1949. Demon Deacon second baseman Charles Teague was named the College World Series Most Valuable Player. The Citadel made history in 1990 by becoming the first military school to make an appearance at the College World Series. The Bulldogs were joined that season at the College World Series by current conference member Georgia Southern. One of the Southern Conference’s more famous baseball alums is Duke’s Dick Groat. The Blue Devil shortstop, who was also a basketball standout, was the conference’s Athlete of the Year in 1951 and 1952. He went on to a 14year career in the major leagues. In 1960, he was named the National League MVP after he led the league in batting with a .325 average for the World Champion Pittsburgh Pirates. Among Southern Conference alums to grace Major League Baseball fields have been Atlee Hammaker (East Tennessee State), Jeff Montgomery (Marshall) and Mike Ramsey (Appalachian State). Other SoCon players to go on to a career in the major leagues include Angels third baseman Dallas McPherson (The Citadel), pitchers Britt Reames (The Citadel) and Ryan Glynn (VMI) who both pitched with Oakland in 2005, Furman’s Tom Mastny, a pitcher with the Cleveland Indians (2007) and Georgia Southern’s Brian Rogers, who pitched with the Pittsburgh Pirates in 2007. Arnold Palmer, perhaps the world’s most famous golfer, competed under the Southern Conference banner as a collegian at Wake Forest. He took medalist honors at the Southern Conference Tournament in 1948 and 1949 and was the tournament’s runner-up in 1950. Palmer was the medalist at the NCAA Golf Championships in 1949 and 1950. He went on to become one of the most accomplished golfers to play on the professional tour. Palmer won 60 tournaments while competing on the PGA Tour and has added 10 more victories as a member of the Senior PGA Tour. He has also won eight major championships - four Masters, two British Opens, one U.S. Open and one U.S. Amateur. Furman golfer Dottie Pepper was named the Southern Conference Women’s Athlete of the Decade in the 1980s and was honored as part of the league’s 25th anniversary of women’s championships celebration in 2007-08. Appalachian State’s Mary Jayne Harrelson won the NCAA Outdoor title at 1,500 meters in 1999 and 2001. Furman’s Brandi Jackson won the NCAA Women’s Golf East Regional in the

spring of 2003. The Southern Conference has also been a breeding ground for some of college athletics’ most recognized coaches and administrators. Legendary basketball coaches Adolph Rupp of Kentucky and Everett Case of North Carolina State both worked the sidelines in the Southern Conference. Rupp guided the Wildcats to a 30-5 mark during the 1931 and 1932 seasons. Yet, for all his coaching accomplishments, Rupp never led Kentucky to a Southern Conference tournament championship. Case mentored the Wolfpack to six consecutive Southern Conference Tournament championships from 1947 through 1952. Lefty Driesell coached Davidson to three Southern Conference Tournament championships in 1966, 1968 and 1969. Driesell also won the league’s Coach of the Year award four straight times from 1963 through 1966. Former Georgia Tech coach Bobby Cremins earned league Coach of the Year honors three times in the late ’70s and early ’80s while at Appalachian State and is now the head coach at the College of Charleston. Terry Holland saw his basketball coaching career take off at Davidson when he returned to his alma mater in 1970. Holland was honored as the Southern Conference Coach of the Year for three consecutive seasons from 1970-72 and led the Wildcats to the conference tournament title and an appearance in the NCAA Tournament in 1970. J. Dallas Shirley, a member of the Basketball Hall of Fame, spent 21 years as the assistant to the commissioner and supervisor of officials in the Southern Conference. He also served as president of the International Association Basketball Officials and the United States Olympic Basketball Committee. The legendary Paul “Bear” Bryant got his coaching start in the Southern Conference as he guided the Maryland Terrapins in 1945. A legendary Southern Conference football coach is the late Frank Howard of Clemson, who guided the Tigers as a league member from 1940-52. The incomparable Howard won 69 Southern Conference games. The Southern Conference has been represented on the sidelines at five Super Bowls in recent years. Bobby Ross, who piloted the San Diego Chargers to the 1996 Super Bowl, was the head coach at The Citadel from 1973-77. Former Buffalo Bills head coach Marv Levy directed William & Mary from 1964-68. He was succeeded at William & Mary by Lou Holtz. William & Mary competed in the Southern Conference from 1936-77.

The University of North Carolina at Greensboro was first chartered back on February 18, 1891 at the State Normal and Industrial School. It was the first state-supported school for the higher education of women in North Carolina. Founded by Charles Duncan McIver, it became co-educational in 1963. Today, in its 116th year of existance, the campus covers 210 acres in downtown Greensboro and has an enrollment

Charles Duncan McIver, founder of the State Normal and Industrial School (now UNCG), decided Minerva, goddess of Wisdom and Women’s Arts, would be a good symbol for the school. Beginning with the first diploma in 1893, the head of Minerva has appeared on every diploma awarded by the institution. The class of 1907 donated the original Minerva statue - made of plaster - to the University. In 2003, the class of 1953 commissioned for a replacement, made of bronze, and placed outside the Elliott University Center in the heart of campus.

Founded in 1891, UNCG is a diverse, student-centered research university, linking the Triad and North Carolina to the world through learning, discovery and service. The university is organized into a College of Arts & Sciences and six professional schools, with more than 1,000 faculty members teaching in programs that offer 86 undergraduate, 56 master’s and 25 doctoral degrees.

UNCG’s School of Nursing, which was established in 1966, is the largest in North Carolina. It has three departments – Adult Health, Parent-Child and Community Practice – and is recognized for the excellence of its programs and the success of its graduates. The master’s program in nurse anesthesia was ranked eighth nationally by U.S. News and World Report. In addition, UNCG is the first institution in the UNC system to offer a combined Master of Science in Nursing and Master of Business Administration in health management.

Despite record numbers for enrollment, UNCG still enjoys a studentfaculty ratio of 17:1 with a faculty totalling 1,080. More than 2,000 bachelor’s degrees and nearly 1,000 master’s and doctoral diplomas are awarded annually. Over the last several years, 75 percent of freshmen have returned the following year.


UNCG has long had a reputation for academic excellence and student-athletes at UNCG are not an exception to the rule. At the end of each of the last three academic years, more than 40% of UNCG student-athletes held a grade-point-average of 3.0 or better. In 2007-08, 105 of 230 student-athletes had a 3.0 GPA or better for the academic year.

The School of Music, which was established in 1921, is rated as one of the Top 20 in the country and combines rigorous theory, history, and performance training with a broad liberal arts education. Pictured above, the University opened a $25.7 million state-of-the-art music facility in 1999. It is the only comprehensive slate of performance and music education degrees from the baccalaureate through the doctorate in North Carolina.


The University of North Carolina at Greensboro is a diverse, student-centered research university, linking the Triad and North Carolina to the world through learning, discovery, and service. As a doctorate-granting institution, it is committed to teaching based in scholarship and advancing knowledge through research. The College of Arts and Sciences and six professional schools offer challenging graduate and undergraduate programs in which students are mentored by outstanding teachers, including nationally and internationally recognized researchers and artists. Affirming the liberal arts as the foundation for lifelong learning, the university provides exemplary learning environments on campus and through distance education so that students can acquire knowledge, develop intellectual skills, and become more thoughtful and responsible members of a global society. Co-curricular, residential, and other programs contribute to students’ social, aesthetic, and ethical development. The University of North Carolina at Greensboro is a community in which people of any racial or ethnic identity, age, or background can achieve an informed appreciation of their own and different cultures. It is a community of actively engaged students, faculty, staff, and alumni founded on open dialogue, shared responsibility, and respect for the distinct contributions of each member.


Dr. Linda

Dr. Linda P. Brady, formerly the senior vice president and provost at the University of Oregon, became the 10th chancellor of UNCG this past summer. She assumed her duties August 1. Dr. Brady was elected Chancellor of the institution by the Board of Governors of the multi-campus University of North Carolina on June 12. Dr. Brady, 60, succeeded Dr. Patricia A. Sullivan, UNCG’s first woman chancellor, who announced her retirement last December after almost 14 years in the post. In recommending Dr. Brady to the Board of Governors, UNC system president Erskine Bowles said, “Over the past 25 years, Linda Brady has accumulated a wealth of leadership experience at highly respected public, urban universities, as well as in the halls of Washington. At each step along the way, she has proven herself to be an energetic leader who promotes collaboration, creative problem-solving, and real-life commitment to scholarship, research, and public service. “She is no stranger to North Carolina or this University system – having served for five years as dean of the College of Humanities and Social Sciences at North Carolina State University – so we consider this a homecoming of sorts. With her broad experience in higher education and federal government, her demonstrated integrity and sound judgment, and her profound understanding of the global marketplace in which our students must compete, Linda Brady will be a forceful and effective leader for UNC Greensboro. We are delighted to bring her back to North Carolina.” In accepting the position, Dr. Brady said, “This is one of the very best jobs in American higher education. I am so grateful for this opportunity and humbled by the trust you have placed in me. I shall not let you down.” As senior vice president and provost at Oregon, Dr. Brady was the university’s chief academic and operating officer. In that role, she was responsible for all aspects of UO’s academic mission, including academic affairs, research and graduate studies, student affairs, institutional equity and diversity, international affairs, finance and administration, and information services. A native of New York City and the first member of her family to attend college, Dr. Brady graduated from Douglass College, the women’s division of Rutgers University, in 1969 with a degree in political science. She received a master’s degree in the field from Rutgers (1970) and a doctorate in political science from Ohio State University (1974). She began her academic career as an assistant professor of political science at Vanderbilt University in 1973 and joined the faculty at Goucher College in Maryland three years later. From 1978 to 1985, Dr. Brady held several positions in the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Defense. Among other roles, she served as a political analyst in the State Department’s Office of Disarmament and Arms Control and as special assistant for mutual and balanced force reductions in the Office of the Secretary of Defense. She later served as a senior fellow in international security and arms control at the Carter Center of Emory University (1986-87) and as a distinguished professor of national security at the U.S. Military Academy (1991-92). From 1993 to 2001, Dr. Brady led the Sam Nunn School of International

Affairs at the Georgia Institute of Technology, where she was also a professor of international affairs. She joined North Carolina State University in 2001 as Dean of the College of Humanities and Social Sciences and professor of political science, and over the next five years was credited with building the stature and visibility of the College, launching a number of new graduate degree programs, and significantly increasing external support for the humanities and social sciences at NC State. She left North Carolina in 2006 to become the chief academic and operating officer at the University of Oregon. Dr. Brady has authored or co-edited three books and numerous book chapters and scholarly articles in the fields of American foreign policy, international negotiation, and arms control. Among other professional organizations, she is a member of the International Studies Association, the American Political Science Association, the International Institute for Strategic Studies, and the Council on Foreign Relations. A past recipient of the Georgia Tech School of Social Sciences Teaching Award, she has earned the Superior Honor Award from the U.S. Department of State and is a two-time recipient of the Outstanding Civilian Service Medal from the Department of the Army. She was an American Council on Education Fellow in 1997-98, serving her fellowship year at the University of Iowa under the mentorship of President Mary Sue Coleman and provost Jon Whitmore. Dr. Brady is married to Gustav “Steve” Heyer, a retired Army officer. She has two adult stepsons and three grandchildren.


Nelson In his 26th year as Director of Intercollegiate Athletics at UNCG, Nelson E. Bobb has developed a nationally recognized program that has continually succeeded in competition as well as in the classroom. Bobb, the first full-time athletic director at the University, is the primary architect of a program that now features 16 NCAA Division I teams, eight for men and eight for women. Last year, he was named to NACDA’s NCAA Division I-AAA Executive Committee as an at-large member. When he arrived in July 1983, there were eight teams competing on the Division III level. The University authorized the shift to Division I in February 1987 and he guided the program through the unprecedented change in competitive status in only five years. UNCG is one of only a dozen institutions to ever compete in all three divisions. However, no other institution has made the complete shift of all teams from Division III to Division I in that time frame. During his tenure, he has watched over the construction or renovation of all of the Spartans’ athletic venues. He began that process by serving on the committee that built Fleming Gymnasium and the HHP Building in 1989. He then moved onto the transformation of Campus Field in 1991 into what is today UNCG Soccer Stadium – one of the premier venues in all of college soccer. In 1999, he oversaw the construction of the UNCG Baseball Stadium and the renovation and lighting of the UNCG Tennis Courts. Most recently, he added to the list the transformation of UNCG’s softball facility to become a top-of-the-line stadium venue, and the reconfiguration of seating in Fleming Gym, which added chairback seating on both sides and additional stands under one of the baskets. Under Bobb’s guidance, Spartan student-athletes have consistently graduated at a rate equal to or higher than the general student population at UNCG. Each of the last four academic years, more than 40 percent of UNCG’s student-athletes earned a 3.0 GPA or better. Last year, 114 of 237 student-athletes earned a cumulative GPA of at least 3.0 for the academic year. Those aspects, among others, helped earn Bobb the AstroTurf Division I Southeast Region Athletic Director of the Year Award at last summer’s NACDA convention. In addition, Bobb was also enshrined in UNCG’s Athletics Hall of Fame last February as a part of the department’s 40th anniversary celebration. Other notable program accomplishments include completing the NCAA certification process for Division I institutions twice and successfully transitioning the department’s teams into Southern Conference membership. Under Bobb’s leadership, UNCG hosted the final two rounds of the 1997 and 1998 NCAA Division I Women’s Soccer Championship, and was home to Olympic athletes from Norway for training prior to the Olympic Games in Atlanta in 1996. Several other Olympic athletes visited and trained at UNCG during the acclimation process. Bobb was also a member of the Olympic Torch run committee in Greensboro for the 1996 Games. During his tenure, UNCG teams have won 36 conference tournament titles, 27 as an NCAA Division I member. They have also won 66 conference regular season titles, 40 of those since moving to NCAA Division I. UNCG earned the Commissioner’s Cup for overall excellence in the Big South for three consecutive years. While Bobb was athletic director in the 1980’s, the men’s soccer team won four Division III national championships and the women’s basketball team made five consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances with a third-place finish in 1988. During his tenure at UNCG, Bobb has also served in various NCAA appointments, including serving on one of the first NCAA Certification teams. From 1995-2000, he

served on four such teams. From 1994 through 1998, Bobb served on the Division I Men’s Soccer National Committee and was on the NCAA Men’s and Women’s Soccer Rules Committee from 2000 through 2004, serving as chair in 2003 and 2004. This academic year, Bobb will serve on three Southern Conference committees, serving on the Committee on Committees, Constitution and By-Laws and the Men’s Soccer Sport Committee, of which he is the chair. On campus, Bobb is a member of the Chancellor’s Executive Staff and has been part of many governing bodies both inside and outside of athletics. He is one of the original members of the Greensboro Sports Commission, having served in the body since 1989. He is also a member of the Greensboro Sports Council. He has presented twice each to the NCAA Convention and the NACDA Convention.

The Spartan Club is a non-profit organization whose primary purpose is to secure scholarship support for the more than 225 student-athletes who compete in 16 men’s and women’s NCAA Division I athletic programs at UNCG. UNCG proudly proclaims that 100 percent of Spartan Club contributions go directly to athletic scholarships for deserving student-athletes.

Methods of Giving Cash, Checks and Credit Card Gifts: Provide the yearly financial resources needed to operate the athletic program. Payments may be spread over the course of a fiscal year (July 1-June 30), but all pledges must be paid by June 30. The University accepts cash, checks and credit cards (American Express, MasterCard, Visa).

Employer Matching Gifts: Matching gifts double or triple the impact of your gift and increase your membership level. Be sure to enclose your matching gift form with application and donation and associate benefits.

Athletic Scholarship Endowments: These provide tuition, room, melas, books and fees on an annual basis for a studentathlete. Pay tribute to someone’s life and accomplishments or leave your own legacy while strengthening UNCG’s athletic program.

Planned and Estate Gifts: These gifts include life income arrangements from trusts, annuities, income funds, as well as life insurance policies and individual estate bequests, such as cash or real estate.
