(Bluefield)—Dr. Albert Walker, Bluefield State College President, has been elected to a four-year term as a member of the NCAA Division II Presidents Council. He attended the Presidents Council’s April 28-29 meeting at NCAA headquarters in Indianapolis, IN.
The emphasis for the student-athlete experience in Division II is a comprehensive program of learning and development in a personal setting. The approach in Division II provides growth opportunities through academic achievement, learning in high-level athletics competition, and development of societal attitudes in service to community. The balance and integration of these different areas of learning opportunity provide Division II student-athletes with a path to graduation, while cultivating a variety of skills and knowledge for life ahead.
In 2008, Dr. Walker also began a two-year term as chair of the West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Board of Directors.
