Communication and Marketing

Paul Thomas

I am the sports information director for Alma College. I am responsible for overseeing the promotion of the Scots’ 25 varsity athletic programs and every student-athlete that participates on an athletic team.

You will usually find me in the press box or at the scorer’s table at most athletic events, coordinating statistics or helping with game management, and when those aren’t going on, I’m overseeing the content of www.GoAlmaScots.com, the website of the athletic department.

In addition, we are constantly seeking new ways to share the story of Alma College athletics to students, the community, and alumni and others away from campus. We do this through social media, live webcasts, post-game updates and previews, and general feature stories about student-athletes. 

One of the areas I love most about my job is teaching students about sports information and giving students the opportunity to get hands-on, practical experience working with student-athletes and athletics teams. 

If you like sports and want to be involved in helping to tell the story of Alma College athletics, let me know!
