The United States Sports Academy continues to strive to meet its mission of making significant contributions to the field of sport by preparing men and women for the profession of sport. The spot light now shines on the Academy doctoral student Ms. Fachaitte Kinslow because she was recently hired as Langston University Assistant Director of Athletics/Compliance.
Langston University Director of Athletics Donnita Rogers officially announced on Monday the hiring of Kinslow as the university’s assistant director of athletics and compliance.
Kinslow comes to Langston University after serving as a counselor for the Oklahoma City Public Schools system for over three years. She has over 15 years of professional experience as a counselor at the high school and collegiate levels in addition to having counseling experience with mental health and substance abuse.
“I am excited to have Ms. Kinslow join the Department of Athletics Administrative Team,” Rogers said. “She has just the shot of energy, passion, and creativity that our department needs right now. She is passionate about ensuring that our student athletes graduate and wants to play an active role in helping them navigate the next steps involved in attending graduate school or gaining employment after graduation. Ms. Kinslow is looking forward to meeting our coaches, staff and student athletes and is prepared to hit the ground running this week.”
Kinslow is currently pursuing her Doctor of Education degree in sports management from the Academy. She holds a bachelor’s degree in liberal arts and a Master of Education degree in general education and school counseling from the University of Central Oklahoma.
“Both of my parents are Langston alums,” Kinslow said. “Although I did not attend Langston as a student, I spent a lot of time growing up here, so it feels like home. I’m excited to have this opportunity to be a part of the Langston family in such an important role.”
