WCU welcomes new Athletic Director

Alex Gary, a former student-athlete on the Western Carolina University baseball team and currently serving as senior associate athletics director for development at Oregon State University, is the next director of the Catamount athletics program.

WCU Chancellor Kelli R. Brown announced the selection of Gary to serve as director of athletics following approval of his contract by the university’s Board of Trustees during a special conference call meeting earlier in the day.

The appointment, which is effective May 1, follows a national search conducted by a 15-member committee working with the assistance of the North Carolina-based executive search consulting firm Collegiate Sports Associates. A formal introduction and campus reception is set for 3 p.m. this afternoon at the Ramsey Regional Activity Center.
