The United States Sports Academy continues to strive to meet its mission of making contributions to the field of sport by preparing men and women for the profession of sport. The spotlight will shine on the Academy and its alumnus Dr. Raymond Tucker.
Dr. Raymond Tucker was hired to start the kinesiology program at the University of Houston-Victoria in 2015, and at the time of his hiring he was the only assistant professor for the program. After starting, working and building the program from the ground up Dr. Tucker was promoted to program coordinator in 2016 and on to associate professor with tenure in 2020. He was elected to serve as department chair in the college of education and health professions for kinesiology, health studies, counseling, and nursing in 2021.
