Athletics Administration Magazine

This month’s Athletics Administration Magazine featured an article about UCR Athletics Director Tamica Smith Jones alongside 11 other women of color who are changing the face of athletics administration.

Each woman aims to demonstrate to all young athletes that there is a presence of women of color.

“One of the top achievements that I’m most proud of in my career so far is taking a leap of faith and having the courage to leave my hometown and support system to join Lynn Hickey’s team at UTSA,” Smith Jones recalls in the article.
