Rogan named ACAC Athletic Director of the Year

Lakeland College's Alan Rogan has been named the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference (ACAC) Athletic Director of the Year for 2017.

Rogan becomes the first recipient of the Athletic Director of the Year accolade that was created and incepted for the 2016-17 season. The award was presented to Rogan at the ACAC's Spring General Meetings last week in Calgary, and recognizes an Athletic Director who has made a significant contribution to their institution, the conference and campus community over the past academic year. Rogan's nomination will now go forward as a finalist for the Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association Athletic Director of the Year award to be presented June 6 in Abbotsford, BC.

"Alan Rogan is a very well-respected ACAC administrator and leader who is unquestionably worthy of this recognition. His selfless approach to acceptance of volunteer leadership roles, and his mentoring of other less experienced colleagues has certainly earned him the admiration of his peers," commented ACAC CEO Mark Kosak.

Rogan has been with the Rustler's athletic program for 25 years, serving as the Athletic Director for the past 10. Under his direction, the Lakeland teams have demonstrated improved excellence in academic achievement as evidenced this past season with 18 CCAA National Scholar award recipients and two CCAA Academic All-Canadians.

The program has also experienced enhanced success on the court and field under Rogan's leadership. During the 2016-17 season the women's volleyball program earned an ACAC Championship on their home court, before capturing Lakeland College's first-ever Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) national championship title in Victoria, B.C.
