HEAD COACH BOB BEARD The lo longest-tenured e t te u ed member e be of the UT Ma Martin ti athleti athletics de department, a t e t Bob Beard enters his 29th season as head rifle coach at The University of Tennessee at Martin. Under Beard’s tutelage, the Skyhawks have been a model of excellence and consistency. UT Martin has been ranked in the Top 20 at season’s end in 26 of the last 27 years. Beard, who was named Ohio Valley Conference Coach of the Year in 2007, has produced four All-Americans, one national champion and an Olympian. Beard is also credited as a trailblazer for the success of the Murray State University rifle program while he was a student at the school located just 50 miles north of Martin in Murray, Ky.

29th Season Murray State ‘66

Beard’s best team came in 1989 when his team finished fourth nationally in smallbore. While UT Martin competed in the Gulf South Conference, Beard led his teams to 87 straight match victories and nine GSC championships, including eight in a row. During that span, UT Martin compiled an amazing 92-6 conference mark.

A native of Bardwell, Ky., Beard attended Murray State, where he was a member of the Racer rifle team from 1962 through 1966. Beard led MSU to a third-place finish nationally in 1966 and for his efforts, Beard was named an All-American. In 1989, Beard was just the second Racer rifleman to be inducted into Murray State’s Athletic Hall of Fame. After graduating from MSU, Beard began doctoral work at the University of Missouri in Columbia. Beard graduated with a doctorate in chemistry in 1970.

“Bob Beard epitomizes everything an athletic director desires in a coach. He recruits studentathletes who are committed to obtaining their degrees. He expects excellence in the classroom and on the range. Coach Beard’s experience in coaching collegiate rifle has resulted in him being a source of information and history for our entire conference. I’ve never had a student-athlete complain about Coach Beard’s philosophy toward coaching. It’s no wonder that his teams have won championships during his tenure at UT Martin.” -Phil Dane Director of Athletics, UT Martin

Beard was a member of the United States National Guard shooting team for 12 years. During his tenure with the National Guard, Beard won the Coast Guard Trophy at the national championships and medaled in events held in Australia and England. Beard is certified as an Advanced International Coach by the Olympics National Governing Body and has been named Coach of the Year in two different athletic conferences. Beard is also a member of the “President’s 100”, honoring the best marksmen in the nation, and a member of the “Queen’s 50”, honoring the fifty best marksmen in England. Bob and his wife, Mary, have two children - Gail and Allen - and two grandchildren - Paige and Magen.

CHANCELLOR DR. TOM RAKES Dr. Tom Rakes became the ninth UT Martin Chancellor May 7, 2007, when University of Tennessee President Dr. John Petersen made the announcement. He began his new role July 1, 2007. Dr. Rakes joined UT Martin in 2002 as Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs and Professor of Educational Studies. He was named Provost in 2005. Dr. Rakes has identified eight specific areas of focus in the last several years. Increasing academic rigor and completion rates, reviewing levels of student and academic program services, refining the enrollment management plan, enhancing security measures and continuing to assess resource allocations are among his priorities. UT Martin’s role as a catalyst and resource in West Tennessee’s economic development is also an area of emphasis. This fall, UT Martin anticipates welcoming the most academically qualified class of new students in our history. Student services have been enhanced with the completion of eight new apartment-style residence halls during the past three years and should be further energized with the opening of the Student Recreation Center scheduled for January 2010. Several academic facilities have also recently benefited from construction activities which include an expansion of Brehm Hall, renovation of the Business Administration Building, the construction of the new Parsons Center, expansion of the Selmer/McNairy County Center, and the recently approved expansion project for construction of Phase One of the Fine Arts Building. Reflecting on the 2008-09 academic year, our list of accomplishments is impressive ranging from a record student enrollment, the second highest six-year graduation rate for public universities in Tennessee, our most successful donor support, topping $11 million, and state or regional recognitions for student groups in agriculture, business, chemistry, social work, education, journalism and broadcasting. We are honored to have received successful program reviews in Geosciences, French, Spanish and University Studies. UT Martin ranks as the largest single university provider of dual-enrollment programming to offer college-level course opportunities to students in more than 30 different high schools as well as a growing number of home-school students. We can also take pride in our athletic teams competing in NCAA and NIT post-season action in softball and men’s basketball, respectively. Our storied rodeo program fielded a team completing this season ranked ninth in the nation.
