Howieson to Join Golden Hawk Team
WATERLOO, Ont. - JAMIE HOWIESON has been named Wilfrid Laurier's new communications coordinator for the Department of Athletics and Recreation. He will assume his duties as of May 24th, 2011.

Howieson joins Laurier after working at Queen's University as the assistant sports information officer where he wrote game recaps for varsity teams and managed social media accounts. He also helped develop media guides, game day programs and other promotional materials for the Gaels program while assisting with media relations.

"We are pleased to welcome Jamie to Wilfrid Laurier," said associate director, business operations Ari Grossman. "The combination of his education and work experience make him a great addition to the Golden Hawk team."

The role within the department is new and is a split of the previous responsibilities held by Mike Whitehouse as coordinator, communications and technology. This is a strategic move ensuring Athletics and Recreation is addressing the growth of programs through additional staffing in communications, marketing and the website through the creation of this position.

Jamie holds an Honours Bachelor of Sport Management from Brock University and a Masters of Human Kinetics in Sport Management from the University of Windsor. While working at both institutions he became involved with their athletics departments and the operations within the Ontario University Athletics (OUA) conference.

At both of his previous institutions he was involved with game notes, media summaries and game operation activities.

"I am very excited to be joining the great team that is in place at Wilfrid Laurier Athletics and Recreation and Im looking forward to being a part of one of the top athletic departments in the country," said Howieson. "I also want to thank Queens Athletics & Recreation for the experiences I have had over the past two years. They provided me with a great opportunity that has gotten me to where I am today."

As coordinator, he will be responsible for the department's media relations, communications, publications and social media.

Wilfrid Laurier University's Department of Athletics & Recreation is home to 20 varsity sports as well as numerous intramural, recreation & fitness programs. Lauriers varsity teams have brought home 60 provincial championships as well as 12 national championships in 100 years of competition.
