June 11, 2014

Tom Shaw, director of Athletics and Physical Education at Kellogg Community College, has been named Michigan Community College Athletic Association Athletic Director of the Year for the 2013-14 academic year.

In the announcement of the award issued June 2, the MCCAA cited Shaw’s outstanding work as MCCAA vice president over the course of the past year, including the updating of MCCAA regulations and serving as MCCAA baseball chair this spring. Also noted was Shaw’s work at the regional and national levels as assistant men’s director of the National Junior College Athletic Association’s Region XII.

The honor follows a spring athletics season at KCC during which Shaw oversaw the baseball team place second in the NJCAA regional tournament and the softball team qualify for postseason play – just the second postseason appearance for the softball team in program history.

Additionally, the baseball team finished the season with an impressive team GPA of 3.28.

“We’re extremely pleased that the MCCAA has recognized in Tom Shaw what we at KCC sees on a daily basis,” KCC President Dr. Dennis Bona said. “Which is an athletic director committed to the success of his student-athletes on and off the field, and to his coaches, fellow employees and the college as a whole.”

Shaw held several athletics positions at Olivet College from 1987 until 1998, when he first became athletic director at KCC. He returned to Olivet in 2001, where he was vice president for enrollment management for five years and athletic director for two years, before returning to KCC in 2008.

This is Shaw’s second MCCAA Director of the Year honor; he also won the award in 1999, during his first year in the role of athletic director at KCC.
