Gibson Resigns as High Point AD

Dr. Woody Gibson has resigned his position as Athletic Director at High Point University but will continue as a member of the faculty in the Exercise and Sport Science Department.

“We are most grateful to Dr. Gibson for his outstanding service in athletics and for being such a dedicated member of our community,” said HPU president, Dr. Nido Qubein. “We look forward to his continued involvement and service at High Point University.”

Dr. Gibson has been instrumental in guiding High Point University through its move to NCAA Division I and has served as Athletic Director for the last nine years. He holds an undergraduate degree from High Point College, a master’s degree from North Carolina A & T University, and a doctorate from Nova Southeastern University. Dr. Gibson has served on many NCAA-level committees over the years, including the Committee on Sportsmanship and Ethical Conduct (2001-2005) and the Task Force on Sports Wagering and Associated Behavior (2004-present).

Gibson will remain in the post of Athletic Director until a replacement is named.

Gibson used to ref my junior high soccer games along with Richard “Dickie” Shore of the High Point Parks and Recreation Department when I was coaching back in the early 1980’s.
