Hello all Students, Faculty/Staff, and friends of UTC:
I joined the division of student development at UTC in October 2012 as the Director for Campus Recreation and I have been blessed to work with a great staff since coming to UTC.
Effective July 1, 2015, I have been promoted to the Executive Director of Campus Recreation and University Center. My new office is located in the University Center and I now report to Tim Johnson, Assistant Vice Chancellor for Housing and Residence Life.
I am challenging my staff to meet the ever changing needs of our students and strive to be customer service orientated in everything we do on a daily basis. My past experiences and passion to make UTC a better place is what drives me on a daily basis. I believe Campus Recreation and the University Center will pursue excellence and improve every day in all that we do to enrich the lives of the students we serve.
I came to UTC from the University of North Texas in Denton, TX, where I served as the Associate Director for Recreational Sports for 15 years.
I have been involved in the recreation field since 1993 and a proud member of NIRSA (National Intramural Recreational Sports Association) where I am a member of the (RCRSP) Registry for Collegiate Recreational Sports Professionals. I call Huntsville, TX my hometown, which is 45 minutes north of Houston, TX and where I attended Sam Houston State University as an undergrad, go Bearkats! I graduated from SHSU with my bachelors of Science degree in Kinesiology in 1996. After my undergraduate days, I attended Georgia Southern University in Statesboro, GA where I obtained my Master of Science degree in Recreation Administration in 1998. I have two awesome children, Josh Wood and Noah Wood, who keep me going with their energy and athletic adventures on a daily basis. I have been married to my beautiful wife, Christy Wood, for 12 years whom I have known for 14 years, and could not do it without her as she is the rock and keeps me going! I love to play golf and enjoy coaching my two boys in basketball and baseball as they grow up, fast too!
