Whit BabcockVaughn A. Williams
Athletic Director
Kennesaw State University


Biggest Suprise?
Even at the mid-major level of Kennesaw State, I am amazed by the amount of interest the outside community has shown in wanting to know the AD. I have enjoyed every minute of the enormous amount of time spent engaging with the communities surrounding our great institution.

Biggest Challenge?
I’d rather call it an opportunity, but changing the culture of the true meaning of service.  We have made great strides at understanding our responsibility of service to our student-athletes, coaches, institution, alumni, fans & community.

Biggest Decision?
Within my first month of being hired, I had to hire our men’s basketball coach. Ten months later, I know what I knew then: that Lewis Preston was the right person to lead Owl basketball into the future.
