Edward Waters Unveils New Athletics Website

JACKSONVILLE, Florida -- -The Edward Waters College Department of Athletics is pleased to unveil its new website for athletics,  EWC has partnered with SIDHelp, a leader in college athletics website design based in Montgomery, Alabama, to create a one-of-a-kind website access and inside information on each of the College's 10 varsity sports programs.

"This is something that has been a long time coming for our department." remarked Assistant Sports Information Director, Joshua C. Jackson. "For years, our student-athletes, coaches and fans of Tiger Nation have clamored for a number of years and for this day to finally come around is really exciting for our department and our institution."

Jackson along with Senior Women's Administrator Charmaine Wilson and athletics consultant George Selmont worked closely with the designers and developers at SIDHelp to create a site that best represents Edward Waters Athletics. Jackson along with a select group of students from the Mass Communications Department will be responsible for updating the site on a frequent basis.

"We're pleased to give our Mass Communications students an outlet to display their sports writing skills as well." Jackson said.

SIDHelp manages a large number of fellow Gulf Coast Athletic Conference schools including Dillard, Tougaloo, Philander Smith, and Talladega, as well as several NAIA institutions. "The fact that SIDHelp manages several of our fellow GCAC and NAIA institutions made this a no-brainer for us." remarked Jackson. "They have a track record of producing great work, and we are thrilled to be among their list of clients."

"This is an exciting time to be a part of Tiger Nation!" remarked Interim Director of Intercollegiate Athletics, Stanley B. Cromartie. "Our College President, Dr. Nathaniel Glover has challenged us to go from good to GREAT and with the unveiling of our new website, this shows our commitment to taking our program to the next level."

The all-new also provides easy navigation to the department's social media platforms, including Facebook and Twitter and soon will provide an opportunity for Tiger Nation to donate directly to the department, via a "Donate Now" page. The site can not only be easily accessed via desktop or laptop, but can also be accessed for those on-the-go via mobile device or tablet.
