RE: Athletic Director Reception this Wednesday, June 26

As you may be aware, our three finalists for the Director of Athletics position on campus have been meeting with various stakeholders and participating in open campus forums this week. I’m writing to let you know that President Mearns expects to make a selection and a public announcement on Wednesday, June 26.

You are invited and encouraged to join the campus community at a reception to welcome the new Director of Athletics at 4 p.m. in the Vault of The Bank of Kentucky Center. We have a long tradition of welcoming new members to our university community, and your presence will send a strong and supportive message to our new Director of Athletics. Doors to the Vault will open at 3:45 p.m. Parking will be available in Lot O as well as the Welcome Center Garage.

The three finalists are Jean Berger, senior associate athletic director/senior woman administrator at the University of Northern Iowa; Ken Bothof, director of athletics at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay; and Karlton Creech, senior associate athletic director/chief of staff at the University of North Carolina. A full biography and résumé for each finalist is available at

We hope to see you in The Vault on Wednesday to meet the new Northern Kentucky University Director of Athletics.
