LANCASTER, Pa. – Former Gettysburg College basketball standout Jessica Porter '16 has returned to the Centennial Conference as Assistant to the Executive Director according to an announcement by the league office.
Porter's position was made possible by the NCAA Division III Ethnic Minority and Women's Internship Grant. The highly desired and prestigious grant provides funding for entry-level administrative positions at Division III institutions and conference offices to encourage access, recruitment, selection and the long-term success of ethnic minorities and women.
"We are thrilled to welcome Jessica back to the Centennial," said Executive Director Steve Ulrich. "Out of the numerous applications we received and candidates we spoke with, her background, skill set and enthusiasm made her a perfect fit for the position. Jessica will be an asset to the Conference and we are fortunate to have her on our team."
Porter was a three-time all-conference selection on the basketball court for the Bullets, earning second-team status in 2013 and first-team accolades in her final two campaigns. She was named the CC Rookie of the Year in 2013 and D3hoops.com All-Mid-Atlantic Region Second Team in 2015.
