Centenary unveils Varsity Club
Wednesday, July 3, 2013

SHREVEPORT, La. – Centenary College of Louisiana announces the launch of the Centenary College Varsity Club.  The organization supports both the Centenary Athletic Department and the Centenary Alumni Association.

The Varsity Club is an organization created to encourage Centenary’s Athletic Alumni to continue as active members of the Centenary family and support current and future Ladies and Gents in the athletic arena and in the classroom.

"'Once an athlete, always an athlete' is our motto," said Director of Athletics and Wellness Ronda Seagraves. "The chance to continue a positive relationship and serve our past and current student-athletes is paramount as the Centenary College Athletic Department continues to build and excel.  We want our former varsity athletes to engage with their past teammates and current athletes in support of the mission of the department and the college.  The Varsity Club is a vehicle that combines the Centenary Athletic Department with the Alumni Office to bring a cohesive message, special events and support to all current and former Centenary athletes.  Go Ladies!  Go Gents!"

“As former student-athletes we all share common values that were a result of hard work, discipline, commitment, and competition. The Varsity Club seeks to re-connect us to those whom we share those unique values as well as foster new, long-lasting relationships," stated former Gents baseball standout Rob Rubel. "As former student-athletes we have a lot to offer the world, on and off the field. The Varsity Club encourages alumni and current student-athletes to recognize that and develop relationships built on the same important values, much like the relationships we had with our teammates."

The Centenary College Varsity Club is charged with supporting and connecting former student-athletes who have proudly worn the Maroon and White as a member of a varsity intercollegiate athletic team.  In conjunction with the Centenary College Alumni Association, the Varsity Club has the vision and mission of fostering lifelong relationships with each other and the College that will encourage alumni to participate in and actively advance the mission of Centenary College of Louisiana.

The Centenary Varsity Club is open to all former varsity athletes of Centenary College. Membership, which includes free admission into campus athletic events, invitations to annual events, quarterly electronic newsletters, and discounts on bookstore merchandise, is automatic upon graduation as and lasts a lifetime.
