UNIVERSITY PARK, PA. -
The Nittany Lion Club is pleased to announce two new staff members. Troy Miller will be the new Major Gift Officer, replacing Mark Muhlhauser and Clint Eury will be the next Varsity 'S' and Sports Restricted Giving Coordinator, replacing Mike Milliron.
Troy joins us from Penn State Hershey where he was the Director of Individual Giving. Prior to coming to Penn State, Troy was the Director of Athletic Development at Lock Haven University.
An avid PSU athletics fan, Troy is very excited to start on Tuesday Sept 6th. "In the late 90s, as a development officer for the United Way of the Capital Region, I had the opportunity to don the Nittany Lion costume on many occasions," Troy states. "I am truly proud to be part of Penn State University and the Nittany Lion Club team. I look forward to getting started."
Drawing on over twenty years of experience in development, Troy earned his Certified Fund Raising Executive status in 2010. He graduated from Temple University with a Bachelor's Degree in English and a Minor in Writing. He and his wife, Beth, have two children; a son, Peyton, and a daughter, Paige.
Clint will join us on August 24th as our Varsity `S and Sports Restricted Giving Coordinator. Prior to joining the Nittany Lion Club, Clint served as the Project Manager and Senior Recruitment and Compensation Specialist for Penn State's Office of Human Resources, from 2005-2011.
While working in Human Resources, he also served as a volunteer for Penn State's Intercollegiate Athletics. Most recently, he served as the Associate Director of Championships for the Penn State University Athletic Conference (PSUAC). He also served as the President of the Penn State Baseball Dugout Club from 2009-2011. Currently, he serves as a board member for Penn State's Athletic Director's Leadership Institute, an organization dedicated to developing current student athletes' leadership skills and abilities.
Clint was also a four-year starter for the Penn State Baseball Team. During his tenure, he served as the baseball representative for the Student-Athlete Advisory Board (SAAB). In 2005, he earned the Big Ten Sportsmanship Award and was selected to join Spiritus Leoninus, both in recognition for his academic, athletic, and community involvement.
Clint earned his B.S in Labor Industrial Relations in 2005 from Penn State, and earned his M.S. in Sport Management in 2009 from California University of Pennsylvania. He completed his graduate school internship with Penn State's Intercollegiate Athletics, where he served as the Business Relations and Communications intern.
