GREENEVILLE—Tusculum University assistant athletic director for communications Dom Donnelly will be honored by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) with its prestigious 25-Year Award during the organization's annual convention next month in Orlando, Florida.
Donnelly has been in charge of publicity for Tusculum's athletics department since June, 1999, following stints at Georgia College, Lenoir-Rhyne, UNC Pembroke and Elon. During his tenure, Donnelly has overseen the growth of Tusculum's athletic offerings from 14 sports to 24, while promoting more than 60 South Atlantic Conference Scholar-Athletes and over 50 Academic All-Americans.
"We have been truly blessed to have a professional of Dom's caliber in our department for the majority of his 25 years in the field," said Tusculum vice president for athletics and University initiatives Doug Jones. "His dedication to his career and to Tusculum University is unmatched, and is a direct reflection of his character. Dom has deservedly earned the respect of his peers and colleagues."
Donnelly, a native of Louisville, Kentucky and a 1989 graduate of Western Kentucky University, is also a member of the National Collegiate Baseball Writers of America (NCBWA) and the CoSIDA Academic All-America® Selection Committee where he has served as national coordinator for women's soccer and the women's at-large programs for NCAA Divisions I and II.
The CoSIDA 25-Year Award is presented to members who have completed 25 years in the profession as of June. Donnelly will be one of nearly 30 CoSIDA members who will be recognized at a breakfast on Tuesday, June 11 at the convention, which will be held at the Orlando World Center Marriott.
