Feb. 27, 2014

WASHINGTON - Assistant Athletic Director for Compliance Milton Roy, Account Executive Corey Dinkins and Track & Field Assistant Coach Heather Stephens were each awarded BIG EAST SWA Professional Development Grants, when the conference announced its recipients on Wednesday afternoon.

Dinkins, Roy and Stephens were among 10 full-time administrators and coaches to receive the development grants awarded to women and ethnic minorities throughout the conference. Roy will attend the National Association for Athletic Compliance (NAAC) conference this summer, while Dinkins will attend the National Association of Collegiate Marketing Administrators Conference. Stephens will continue her coaching education by obtaining her Level 1 coaching certification for track and field.

"I was very excited when Sharon Brummell approached me with the opportunity and now to be able to take part," Stephens said. "It is essential to keep learning, to be able to keep teaching the student-athletes."

The opportunity provided to Dinkins, Roy and Stephens will help the three continue their athletics education and enrich the experiences for the Georgetown University student-athletes that they serve.

"This is a great professional development opportunity," Roy said. "I have an opportunity to learn some of the best practices that my peers have implemented in their own offices and see what would work best to benefit Georgetown."

"I was honored to receive the grant," Dinkins said. "Just to be given an opportunity to move forward and build my network and continue to learn from other professionals in collegiate athletics is going to be very helpful."

The BIG EAST established the grant program to benefit women and ethnic minority coaches and administrators at our member institutions for professional growth and development. These grants will be awarded to full-time coaches and administrators.
