WALNUT - Mt. San Antonio College Director of Athletics Joe Jennum was named the 2019-20 National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA) Under Armour Community College AD of the Year. The award spans seven collegiate divisions across the country including the NCAA, NAIA and Community College levels.
Pending how large events/gatherings are monitored due to the current world health crisis, Jennum will receive the prestigious honor on June 9th, at the 55th Annual NACDA Convention to be held at the Mandalay Bay Resort in Las Vegas. The AD of the Year Award honors and highlights the efforts of 28 athletics directors, at all levels, for their commitment and positive contributions to student-athletes, campuses and their surrounding community.
"This is a tremendous honor, one that cannot be achieved by one person," said Jennum. "The award would not be possible without my staff, coaches, student-athletes and the tremendous support of our administration and Board of Trustees. This is truly an honor that belongs to everyone here at Mt. SAC!"
Jennum has directed the 23 sports of the Mounties athletics program since August of 2010. During his tenure he has guided South Coast Conference member Mt. SAC to a prestigious Learfield Sports Directors Cup Championship (2014-15), multiple NATYCAA Cup Championships in the state association division (2011, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016*, 2017*, 2018 and 2019) along with 26 CCCAA State Championships, making Mt. SAC the most awarded athletics program among California's 115 community colleges.
