Marcy Weston has been an iconic figure in the Central Michigan University Athletics Department since 1972, serving first as a physical education instructor and coach, and as a long-time administrator. Marcy has served in varied roles in her four-plus decades at CMU, including as a volleyball, basketball and field hockey coach; as the Senior Associate Athletic Director; and, finally, as the Executive Associate Director of Athletics/Sport Administration. As a testament to her stature at CMU, the university's Athletics Hall of Fame is named in her honor.
Marcy's impact on Central Michigan University athletics is immeasurable, and she has amassed an incredible list of awards and accolades, both through her lifelong work with the university, and as a women's basketball official.
The influence that Marcy has had on collegiate athletics and on thousands of student-athletes is inestimable and limitless.
Fran Koenig, Jane McNamara and Marcy Weston Pioneers in Women's Sports Endowment
Since announcing her retirement in December, we have received overwhelming requests for ways in which friends and supporters can express their appreciation for Marcy's commitment to intercollegiate athletics. After receiving Marcy's support, we have added her name to the "Fran Koenig, Jane McNamara Pioneer in Women's Sports Endowment." This endowment provides additional funding specifically for the benefit of our women's sports teams here at CMU.
Our goal is to raise $250,000 in support of this endowment by Marcy's Gala Celebration on April 27, 2015. We will continue to raise support for this endowment in the coming years as part of a university wide Capital Campaign and have established an overall goal of $1,000,000 for this initiative by the conclusion of that endeavor.
By making a commitment to the "Fran Koenig, Jane McNamara and Marcy Weston Pioneers in Women's Sports Endowment", you will not only demonstrate your appreciation to Marcy for her remarkable career, but will demonstrate your commitment to our women's sports initiatives that Marcy represents.
