Recognized as one of the more consistently stellar athletic programs in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA), credit was given to Embry Riddle’s Jaime Long, as the top Athletic Director of the Year in the California Pacific Conference.
Long has worn many hats since arriving in Prescott, Arizona. She has done some coaching, served as the Sports Information Director and Interim Athletic Director over the past several years. Long has now assumed full-time Athletic Director Duties at Embry-Riddle in Prescott.
The conference athletic directors voted on Long for the big award as the top Athletic Director of the year.
Embry-Riddle was also voted the Sports Information awardee, recognizing the outstanding efforts from Phil Hess, the current Assistant Athletic Director and Sports Information Director and Jaime Long.
And, finally, the Embry Riddle Golden Eagles were recognized as the Cal Pac Sportsmanship Award.
