Event hosted by the Legacy League of George Fox

NEWBERG, Ore. (Oct. 19, 2018) – George Fox Athletic Director Adam Puckett will be a special guest at a Legacy League (formerly George Fox Auxiliary) luncheon at noon on Friday, Nov. 2, in the university’s Canyon Commons dining hall.

Puckett will speak primarily on the mission statement of the school’s athletics department: “To provide a competitive experience that breeds athletic excellence, academic success and Christ-like character.”

“I will discuss why we believe each to be important and how it fits into the mission of the university, what it means to us as a department, and what intentional efforts we are making to create a culture that honors the mission,” Puckett said.

Reservations are required, with $10 payable at the door. Reservations, with a deadline of Oct. 30, may be made by calling Connie Magee at 503-927-5011.

With the addition of swimming this year, George Fox now has 477 student-athletes in 21 sponsored sports. Eighty of those students compete in two different sports, something not common in Division I schools.

A 2004 George Fox graduate, Puckett was named athletics director in 2017, leaving a position with Delap, a Portland-based accounting and advisory firm where he was a partner and worked for 13 years as a certified public accountant. He also was a member of the university’s board of trustees. As a student, he was an All-American his senior year, placing seventh in the long jump at the NCAA Division III National Outdoor Track and Field Championships.

George Fox University is ranked by Forbes among the top Christian universities in the country and is a Christian college classified by U.S. News & World Report as a “Best Regional University.” Money magazine ranked it the No. 1 school in Oregon in its 2017-18 “Best Colleges for Your Money” list. More than 4,000 students attend classes on the university’s campus in Newberg, Ore., and at teaching centers in Portland, Salem and Redmond, Ore. George Fox offers bachelor’s degrees in more than 40 majors, degree-completion programs for working adults, six seminary degrees, and 13 master’s and doctoral degrees.
