Congratulations to Dr. Stacey Johnson, former president of USA Fencing, for her forthcoming induction into the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) Hall of Fame. She is the first fencer in the organization’s history to receive this honor, and shares the honor this year in a notable female-only field of inductees. Other athletes inducted into the organization have typically been from major U.S. sports such as [American] football and basketball, many of whom have been very well-known sports figures in the USA.
To be inducted, a candidate must have numerous credentials, including having earned academic and sports nominations and honors as well as meeting a variety of stringent career, philanthropic, and other achievements.
CoSIDA, founded in 1957, is a 3000-plus membership organization in the USA comprising sports public relations, media relations, and communications/information professionals involved in collegiate athletics in the USA and Canada.
More information about CoSIDA may be found at their official website, www.cosida.com.
