Thomas More Names Faculty Athletic Representative


CRESTVIEW HILLS, Ky. (June 14, 2022) — Thomas More University announces the appointment of Cate Sherron, Ph.D., as the University’s Faculty Athletic Representative (FAR) effective immediately. Sherron has been a long-standing member of the Thomas More community and serves as a professor of philosophy and director of the James Graham Brown Scholars Program.

“I am thrilled to serve again as FAR affording me the opportunity to ensure academic integrity across our athletics program and to make it possible for our student-athletes to flourish into their best selves: mind, body, and soul,” says Sherron.

As Thomas More University awaits the National Collegiate Athletic Association’s (NCAA) decision regarding membership as a Division II competitor, the appointment of Sherron as the University’s FAR is a critical step in ensuring the academic integrity of the intercollegiate athletics program. The FAR facilitates institutional control and compliance with NCAA and the Great Midwest Athletic Conference (G-MAC) rules related to academic eligibility and transfer requirements. Until such time as the NCAA makes their decision, Sherron serves as the FAR to the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA). Sherron previously served as NCAA Division III FAR for a period of time between 2011 and 2015.

“I certainly look forward to working with Dr. Sherron in this role,” says Thomas More University President Joseph L. Chillo, LP.D. “I am grateful for her willingness to serve as the FAR in support of our student-athletes and our athletics program.”
