NEW WILMINGTON, Pa. – Kevin Fenstermacher has been named deputy athletic director for communications and administration at Westminster College, effective Nov. 28.

Fenstermacher previously served as associate director of athletics at Thiel College, where he began his career as sports information director. Before his 11-year stint at Thiel, he was assistant sports information director at State University of New York at Oneonta.

“I look forward to beginning a new professional chapter at Westminster College,” said Fenstermacher. “I have spent a lot of time around Westminster student-athletes, and it has always been a group that’s demonstrated an ongoing commitment to service and obligation to improving relationships throughout the community, so interacting with a group like that is something I am very excited about.”

Originally from Erie, Pa., Fenstermacher, earned his bachelor’s degree in physical education/sports communication from Bethany College and his master’s in leadership from Duquesne University. He is active with the College Sports Information Directors of America, Eastern College Athletic Conference Sports Information Directors Association and Division III Commissioners Association.
