Trevecca seeking new leadership for athletics program

Steve Harris, associate provost and dean of student development, announced today (3/4) that Trevecca’s administration has decided to seek new leadership direction for the University’s athletic programs and will be making a change in its director. Dr. Brenda Patterson, director of intercollegiate athletics since 2007, will fulfill her contract and responsibilities throughout the remainder of this academic year, continuing to assist the University in the completion of its NCAA membership application. Trevecca’s administration expressed it thanks for the contributions Dr. Patterson has made to the University and for her years of service in Christian higher education. The University will immediately begin the search for a new director of intercollegiate athletics.

Regarding this change in the athletics program, Trevecca president Dan Boone said, "I am grateful for the service rendered to the university by Dr. Brenda Patterson. She has made Trevecca a better university, and it is my hope that she continues to be part of a great team of Christian servants forming the next generation on the campus of Trevecca. She is a friend and colleague, and I hold her in highest regard."
