TUSCALOOSA, AL – Stillman College has announced the hiring of Joel Worthington as its new sports information director. Worthington served as the Athletic Coordinator and Sports Information Director for the Alabama Christian Athletic Association, as well as Dean of Students at Tuscaloosa Christian School for the past two years. He spent the previous seven years as the Athletic Director at Flint Hill Christian School in Bessemer, AL.
