Athletic director resigns

by Kaylee Noborikawa, staff writer

On Nov. 19 Jill Ward unexpectedly announced her resignation as HPU’s athletic director. Ward declared her resignation after learning that her husband had received orders from the Navy transferring him to Japan.

“ I have appreciated the opportunity to be Athletics director in that I was exposed to so many wonderful students, coaches, and people here at HPU,” Ward said of her tenure at HPU. She was named interim Athletics director in May 2005, and her title became official as of Sept. 1, 2005.

Starting Dec. 1, Darren Vorderbruegge, the head men’s basketball coach and assistant athletic director will take over as interim athletic director.
