Seketa Named Director of Tiger Letterwinners Association

Aug. 18, 2011

CLEMSON, SC – John Seketa has been named Executive Director of the Tiger Letterwinners Association at Clemson University. Seketa, who has been at Clemson since 1986, has worked with 19 of the school’s sports programs and served as host for reunions for football, soccer, tennis, baseball and track and field programs. He will continue to serve as Assistant Athletic Director for Athletic Promotions.

Charlie Bussey has served as Executive Director of the Tiger Letterwinners Association the last 13 years in a part-time role. He will continue to serve on the Tiger Letterwinners Board and will be involved in many of the activities he served in the past, including the Hall of Fame Induction weekend, the football game-day activities for the association, and the “Family Matters” newsletter.

“Charlie Bussey has done a great job with our Letterwinners Association for over a decade and he is going to continue to be a vital part of the organization,” said Clemson Executive Senior Associate Athletic Director for External Affairs Bill D’Andrea. “But, we are looking to expand the scope of the Letterwinners Association. To do that we need to place the leadership under the responsibilities of a full-time employee of the Athletic Department.”

“John will do a great job in this role and he has some new ideas that will continue to keep the Tiger Letterwinners Association as a model program for other universities.”

“I can’t think of a role that would have been more inspiring for me as a former Clemson athlete and graduate over these last 13 years,” said Bussey, who was the school’s first academic All-American football player in 1956 when he quarterbacked the Tigers to the ACC Championship and the Orange Bowl. “I endorse this reorganization and look forward to continue to play a significant role in the Tiger Letterwinners Association.

“John has been at Clemson for 25 years and will be outstanding in this role. I look forward to helping him and the association any way I can.”
