Stinson resigns from the SIAC
August 7, 2009
Harry Stinson III, SIAC Director of Championships, Communications and Marketing has resigned to pursue new opportunities. His resignation was effective July 30, 2009.
The Orlando, FL native had worked with the SIAC since September 2005 serving in many capacities from conference sports information director to Interim Commissioner. During his tenure in the conference office, he spearheaded numerous auxiliary committees including the SIAC Pioneer Bowl, Basketball Tournament and community service initiatives.
“It has been a pleasure to serve the SIAC in as many capacities as I have,” said Stinson. “Working at the SIAC truly allowed me to learn a lot in regards to athletic administration. As the conference office goes in a new direction I feel it is time for me to continue my career growth and pursue other opportunities.”
Stinson is a recent graduate of the NCAA Leadership Institute for Ethnic Minority Males and Females and was chosen to serve as a facilitator for the NCAA Leadership Academy for two consecutive years.
He helped grow the SIAC's media coverage each of his four years and introduced new technology platforms and marketing techniques.
In his marketing role, he helped raise over $100,000 to aid SIAC initiatives.
“I thank the Commissioner, President’s Council; the athletic directors, coaches, administrators, student athletes, fans and alumni whom I have gotten a chance to know, serve and correspond with over the past four years,” he noted. “It has truly been an honor to watch the SIAC grow.”
Stinson is a former track & field student athlete at Florida State University and received his Master’s in Sport Administration from Georgia State University in 2005. He is a proud member of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc and serves on several non profit organization executive boards including High Aspirations Foundation Inc. (HAFI) and the African American Association of Georgia (AAAG).
