WHAC - Mon, Jun. 17, 2013

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. - The Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference (WHAC) announced Cornerstone University administrator Dave Grube as the conference's 2012-13 Athletics Director of the Year. The award, chosen annually by a ballot of conference athletic directors, is the second for Grube. He previously won the award in 2010.

Grube, a graduate of South Alabama, joined Cornerstone in 2003 after a successful coaching career and a stint as the general manager of the Grand Rapids Hoops from the Continental Basketball Association. His positive attitude and emphasize on student-athletes is demonstrated in his motto, "Excellence is not an option, it's an expectation."

"Dave's leadership is seen in all areas," said WHAC commissioner Rob Miller. "His service brings many positive elements not only to Cornerstone, but on the conference and national levels."

A member of the the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) National Administrative Councilfor the past six years, Grube served the chairperson of the NAIA Experience and Enhancement Committee. He wason the National Oversight Committee for men's soccer to review national rating ballots and is a member of the Association's Champions of Character Advisory Board and Integration Committee. At the conference level, he serves on the Conduct and Ethics Committee, was a member of the Rater Task Force, and sits on the Scheduling Task Force that evaluates best game scheduling practices.

Back home at Cornerstone, Grube's job involves staff oversight and development, facility development, student academic achievement, Champions of Character, and chief fundraiser for the athletic department. This past year, the university offered baseball for the first time since 1996 and completed a $6,000,000 baseball facility. The new facility will attract both regional and national events to campus, provide locker rooms and training facilities, and house a 100-bed residence hall on top of the stadium. In addition, the softball and soccer facilities also received upgrades this year.

"I am very honored and humbled to receive this recognition from my peers," commented Grube. "Credit needs to go to my talented and hard working coaches and staff, and to God for the many blessings Cornerstone has received."
