LARAMIE, Wyo. -
The Cowboy Joe Club, the fundraising organization for University of Wyoming Athletics, announced on Thursday the hiring of Sarah McCance as Athletic Development Officer for Special Projects.
A native of Cheyenne, Wyo., McCance is returning to UW, her alma mater, from the University of North Texas Athletics Department where she was a Coordinator of the Mean Green Club for the past year and a half.
Prior to working at North Texas, McCance graduated from the University of Wyoming in May of 2009 with a bachelor's degree in marketing and a minor in finance. She also participated as a UW cheerleader during her time in college.
McCance will oversee all donor relations in Laramie County, as well as the Wildcatter Stadium Club & Suites addition to War Memorial Stadium. She will also coordinate all Cowboy Joe Club special event fundraising activities, including the Cowboy Joe Club Golf Series events and the Cowboy Joe Club auctions.
"It is truly an honor and privilege for me to come back to Wyoming and work at my alma mater," said McCance. "I'm excited about all that is happening with Wyoming Athletics. UW has made great strides in the last few years, even in the short time I was away. I look forward to working with and learning from this staff, and doing my part to continue the development of the Cowboy Joe Club throughout the region."
"Sarah is a great fit for the Cowboy Joe Club," said Josh Rebholz, Senior Associate Athletics Director for Development and Revenue Enhancement. "Throughout the entire application process she stood out to us. She is very talented, very personable and her knowledge of our University, the state of Wyoming, as well as Cheyenne will certainly bode well for enhanced revenue and quality service to our membership.
"Over the past four years, we have seen great success in Cowboy Joe. With the addition of Sarah, along with Keener Fry, Associate Athletic Director for Annual Giving, and Jeff Pivic, Development Officer, I'm really excited to see what the future holds for our organization."
