TUSKEGEE, AL (WSFA) - Tuskegee University President, Dr. Benjamin F. Payton has appointed Alvin R. Jackson as the University's new athletic director. Jackson follows Anthony Holloman, who recently resigned to accept a position at South Carolina State University. 

"Mr. Jackson is well-versed on compliance issues and working to promote success in athletic competition," Payton said. 

Jackson, who once held the positions of assistant football coach and head softball coach at Tuskegee, most recently served as assistant athletic director at Alcorn State University in Mississippi. He has been the Director of Athletic Compliance at Grambling State University in Louisiana; Director of Athletics/fitness program coordinator at Kingwood State Community College in Texas; Director of Compliance/assistant athletic director at Alabama State University; and assistant athletic director at Morris Brown College in Atlanta. He has also served as chair of the Department of Health, Physical Education and Recreation at Coahoma Community College in Clarksdale, Miss., and as Director of Athletics at Natchez College, also in Mississippi. 

Jackson received a B.S. degree in health, physical education and recreation, and an M.S. degree in athletic administration from Alcorn. He has served on the NCAA Certification Self-Study Governance and Compliance Committee, NCAA Division I Amateurism Fact Finding Committee, Student/Athlete Advisory Committee and Institution Planning and University Grievance committees. 

Jackson is married to Dr. Faye Hall Jackson, a faculty member in the Tuskegee University College of Business and Information Science.
