SLCC names Kevin Dustin director of athletics

 Salt Lake Community College has named Kevin M. Dustin as the College’s new director of athletics, overseeing the College’s nationally competitive five-sport program.

“We are excited to have someone of Kevin Dustin’s caliber joining the SLCC athletic program. I believe Kevin will carry on Norma Carr’s legacy of leading the athletic program with integrity,” said SLCC Interim Vice President of Student Services Nancy Singer. “His development experience, high school athletics experience, and his ability to build collaborative partnerships will serve the College and our student athletes well.”

Carr led the SLCC athletics program for 25 years, and in that time she oversaw the construction of multiple athletics facilities for the Bruins. She has helped guide the coaches and teams under her watch to numerous Scenic West Athletic Conference and Region 18 championships, including the 2009 NJCAA National Championship in men’s basketball. SLCC competes in men’s and women’s basketball, softball, women’s volleyball and baseball.

Dustin worked for Utah State University and brings to the SLCC job extensive Division 1 experience in administration, fundraising, supervising coaches and marketing. Since 2009 he has worked for the Utah High School Activities Association, where most recently he has been the assistant director.

“I’m very honored to be selected,” said Dustin, who starts at SLCC on July 1. “Salt Lake Community College’s athletics department, as well as the college as a whole, across the country is well respected. And Norma has done a terrific job over the past 25 years. I have huge shoes to fill.”
