Dr. George B. (Barney) Forsythe, Westminster College president, has been appointed as a member of the Presidents Council of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA).
The organization supervises and sets rules for all Division 3 athletic programs.
“I am honored,” Forsythe said, “to assume a leadership role in an organization that plays such a significant role in the lives of so many of our Westminster students. Our student athletes compete fiercely because they are so passionate about their sport. Yet they bring that same passion and discipline to their studies, making them some of our most outstanding students.”
