I want to take this opportunity to acknowledge the outstanding contributions that have been made by the Hampton Roads Sports Commission throughout this community. The catalyst for these accomplishments has been achieved under the leadership of its Executive Director, Jack Ankerson.
Norfolk State University has partnered with the Hampton Roads Sports Commission since 2001, hosting the AAU Junior Olympic Games on several occasions. As a result of the professionalism and organizational skills of the staff and their knowledge of athletics and sporting events, the entire Hampton Roads community has benefitted economically and the region?s reputation has been enhanced as a major player in hosting sporting events.
The Hampton Roads Sports Commission is a tremendous asset for this community and sets the standard for other sports commissions to emulate.
