WICHITA – Friends University Athletic Director, Dr. Carole Obermeyer, has announced that Levi Convirs has been named the school’s new Sports Information Director, effective immediately.
Convirs will serve as the media liaison for each sport and will oversee athletic department publications, social media sites and all home events.
“I am very excited that we have been able to bring Levi to Friends University,” Obermeyer said. “He brings a wealth of experience and strong support of the Friends University mission.”
A native of Wyandotte, Okla., Convirs comes to Friends after serving seven years as the SID at Mid-America Christian University in Oklahoma City.
At MACU, Convirs handled media relation duties for all sports, including promotional efforts for the 2015-16 Men’s Basketball NAIA National Championship team.
He also received eight NAIA-SIDA writing and publication awards, with six top-five finishes.
“I am extremely excited to take over as SID at Friends University,” Convirs said. “It’s been easy to see God’s hand guiding this process and I can’t wait to get started. Being at an NAIA program for the last seven years, I became very familiar with Friends and that should make the transition smooth.”
“I want to thank Dr. Obermeyer, President Amy Bragg Carey, Joe Zimmerman and the entire Friends Athletic Department and coaching staff for giving me such a warm welcome. Together, we’re going to take Friends to the highest level possible, both locally and nationally.”
Convirs and his wife Michelle, along with their three sons, Matthew (12, Luke (9) and Peyton (5), will reside in Goddard, Kan.
