Clint Bryant, director of athletics at Augusta State University, has been honored by the Minority Opportunities Athletic Association (MOAA) with the Distinguished Service Award, the highest award given by the association.
“I am very honored to receive this award. Anytime you are recognized by your colleagues for an award of this magnitude it means a great deal, but at the same time it’s not about me. It’s about leveling the playing field and doing the right thing,” said Bryant. He is the first person from the intercollegiate athletic membership to be recognized for this award.
Bryant, the award’s third recipient, will be recognized at the 2012 MOAA Symposium held in Dallas, Texas. The two prior awardees were Myles Brand, former president of the National Collegiate Athletic Association, and Mike Clary, former executive director of the National Collegiate Athletic Directors Association.
The MOAA Distinguished Service Award acknowledges and honors the effort of individuals who strive to promote understanding and appreciation of diversity in its multitude of forms.
