Albany State Athletics Director resigns
« on: June 19, 2019, 10:40:42 AM »
ALBANY, Ga. – Albany State University (ASU) announced today that Sherie Gordon, Director of Athletics, has accepted a new job opportunity with another institution. The transition is effective June 30.
“Sherie has been an outstanding leader of ASU Athletics,” said President Marion Ross Fedrick. “During her tenure, she has led efforts to improve our student athletes experience, enhance university community engagement efforts and increase our number of championships. We are all deeply grateful for her commitment to building a program that bolsters the success of our student-athletes now and in the future. We wish her continued success in her new endeavor.”
“We will forever cherish our time at Albany State University and in Albany,” Gordon said. “I want to thank ASU for giving me the opportunity to be a Golden Ram in 2016. I am proud of the athletics accomplishments we were able to achieve during the last few years, but I am most proud of our student-athletes,” Gordon said. “They always believed they could achieve greatness in the classroom, competition and community. ASU is a great place, and I appreciate all of the support of our staff, donors, community leaders and especially the support from President Fedrick. We have built lifelong friendships and will always treasure our time as Golden Rams."
During Gordon’s time at ASU, she contributed to the growth of the University in several ways. The academic performance of student-athletes increased from an average GPA of 2.5 in 2016 to the current 2.9 average, and student-athletes have gained over 2,400 hours of service. Under Gordon’s leadership, the institution earned four SIAC Commissioner’s Cups, three NCAA Individual National Championships, one HBCU National Championship and eight division titles.
Gordon’s work in the marketing, communications, and branding efforts of the institution led to the implementation of an online ticketing system, online store and rebranded Athletics website. Additionally, Gordon worked to enhance sports tourism efforts in Albany by partnering with the City of Albany the Convention and Visitors Bureau to host cross country, track and field, baseball and softball championships in the city.
With Gordon’s departure, Jackie Nicholson, Associate Athletics Director for Academics and Compliance/Senior Woman Administrator, will serve as the interim Director of Athletics. A nationwide search for the new Director of Athletics will begin this summer.

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.
