Maroon Club searching for new Executive Director
April 3, 2014
EASTON, Pa. – Lafayette’s Assistant Director of Athletic Development and Maroon Club Executive Director John-Frank Stubits ’05 has accepted a position with Convergent, a voice, data and video integration provider headquartered in the Lehigh Valley. A national search is underway for Stubits’ replacement.
“Over the last two years, John-Frank has been vital in moving forward with plans to revitalize the Maroon Club’s Executive Committee and build on previously established ‘Friends of’ Committees comprised of alumni, parents and friends of the College,” said Lafayette Director of Athletics Bruce McCutcheon. “We are currently on-track to have one of the best years ever for the Maroon Club and that is thanks to his dedication, passion and commitment to this cause.”
Stubits served as the Assistant Director of Athletic Development and Maroon Club Executive Director since 2012. A former Lafayette football team co-captain, Stubits has remained active in the Lafayette community since graduating in 2005 with a degree in Economics and Business. He is a member of the Friends of Lafayette Football Fundraising Committee and has volunteered with the Lauren's First and Goal Foundation Football Camp and at Lafayette Youth Empowerment Day.
Stubits was a four-year letterwinner on the gridiron at Lafayette and a member of the 2004 Patriot League Championship squad. He played on both sides of the ball, suiting up for 30 games at linebacker during his first three seasons with the Leopards before appearing at tight end in all 12 contests of his senior campaign. The Lehigh Valley Alumni Association presented Stubits with its Outstanding Scholar-Athlete Award in 2004. He was also recognized by his coaches after the 2004 season with the football team's "Unsung Hero" Award.
