Anthony Hollman Names Commissioner of the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference

Anthony Hollman has been named the eleventh commissioner of the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference. He will take on his new duties on September 1.

The Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SIAC) was founded in 1913. The present membership is composed of 14 different institutions in seven states: Albany State University, Benedict College, Central State University, Clark Atlanta University, Fort Valley State University, Kentucky State University, Lane College, LeMoyne-Owen College, Miles College, Morehouse College, Paine College, Savannah State University, Spring Hill College, and Tuskegee University. Spring Hill College in Mobile, Alabama, is the only member of the conference that is not a historically Black educational institution.

“To have the opportunity to lead this conference is an honor and privilege,” said Dr. Holloman. “This is an exciting time for my family and me. Wholeheartedly, I embrace the challenge of managing and growing the SIAC while positioning the league for its next chapter of growth as a collection of regionally, nationally, and globally recognized institutions.”

Since 2018, Dr. Holloman has served as the vice president for university advancement and athletics and executive director for the Fort Valley State University Foundation in Georgia.

Dr. Holloman is a graduate of Johnson C. Smith University in Charlotte, where he majored in communications and was a football and track team member. He holds a master’s degree in sports science from the United States Sports Academy in Daphne, Alabama. He also earned a doctorate in educational leadership from Gwynedd Mercy University in Pennsylvania.
