JACKSON, Tenn. – Aug. 7, 2009 – The TranSouth Athletic Conference has selected Union University sports information director Steven Aldridge as the 2008-09 Sports Information Director of the Year.
Aldridge received the award at the conference’s annual meeting Aug. 4 at Freed-Hardeman University in Henderson, Tenn. The conference instituted the award in 2006 to recognize the efforts of sports information directors in promoting the teams of the TranSouth. This is the third time in four years for Aldridge to receive the award.
“This award is a reflection of the outstanding work Steven does to promote our sports programs in local and national media,” said Tommy Sadler, director of athletic operations at Union. “It is also a reflection of how his peers view his work and his willingness to unselfishly help others. We congratulate him on this honor and thank him for his tireless efforts on behalf of our coaches and student athletes here at Union.”
Aldridge, who graduated from Union in December 1998, has been Union’s sports information director since 2000. He previously worked as box office and events manager for the West Tennessee Diamond Jaxx.
He is a 1994 graduate of Myrtle High School in Myrtle, Miss. Aldridge and his wife Stacy have one daughter, Haley, and son, Justin. They are members of Southside Baptist Church in Jackson.
