In a concerted effort to improve the development of academics and life-skills as they pertain to student-athletes throughout their careers at Valdosta State, Blazer Athletics announced the installation of a new Director of Student-Athlete Development position within the ranks of the VSU athletic administrative staff Friday. Shifting from her longtime role of associate head women’s basketball coach for the Blazer basketball program, Jennifer Grubbs has accepted the position and will begin her new role in July. “Our student-athletes are our greatest asset. Without them, none of the success that we have enjoyed would be possible. This position gives VSU Athletics the ability to invest in our student athletes as they have invested themselves in Valdosta State,” said Grubbs. The exciting addition of the aforementioned position was made possible in large part thanks to the Strategic Alliance Matching Grant (SAM Grant), which is designed to provide financial assistance to Division II conferences and member institutions that are committed to enhancing gender and ethnic minority representation in intercollegiate athletics. – valdostadailytimes.comRead More
