2002 Administrator of the Year

Andi Myers
ISU athletic director

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. Andrea Myers, director of athletics at Indiana State University, will be honored as a 2002 Administrator of the Year by the National Association of Collegiate Women Athletic Administrators (NACWAA) at its Oct. 14 convention in St. Louis.

The NACWAA will honor seven women, each of whom has provided outstanding leadership in intercollegiate athletics.

"It's always nice to be recognized by your peers but no one can be successful without a strong supporting cast," Myers said. "I've been fortunate throughout my career to have had people who believed in me, gave me opportunities, and supported me in those positions."

The Administrator of the Year Award is presented to NACWAA members for significant contributions made to collegiate athletics. This award, recognizing administrative excellence, is presented annually to members in NCAA Divisions 1-A, I-AA, I-AAA, Division II, Division III, NAIA/Junior/Community Colleges and Organizations/Conference.

"Andi is very deserving of this prestigious award and I am pleased she is being recognized for her hard work," said D. Thomas Ramey, vice president for Student Affairs. "She has dedicated many years of service to Indiana State University and Sycamore athletics as well as serving at the national level."

Myers is being recognized as the Division I-AA Administrator of the Year recipient. Other recipients include Andrea Seger of Ball State University, Roxanne Levenson of Pepperdine University, Pam Lynn Dorn of North Dakota State University, Laurie Priest of Mount Holyoke College, Karen Sykes of Dean College and Carolyn Femovich of Patriot League.

Myers is now in her fourth year as director of athletics at ISU. Before moving into the director's role, she was the department's senior associate athletic director. She currently serves on the Missouri Valley Conference Finance Committee as well as the Executive Committee.

Previously, Myers has served as a member of the NCAA's Committee for Women's Athletics, NCAA Management Council and the NCAA Infractions Committee. She is a graduate of Indiana State, with bachelor's and master's degrees in physical education.
