College has named a new Director of Athletics and Campus Recreation

Laramie County Community College has announced a new Director of Athletics and Campus Recreation, Clark Rasmussen. Rasmussen will join the Golden Eagles after serving as assistant athletic director at the College of Southern Idaho.

During his time at Southern Idaho, Rasmussen was heavily invested in fundraising, promotions, corporate sponsorships, mass and multimedia exposure and direct work with the teams and their facilities.

“LCCC is absolutely an appealing and intriguing school,” Rasmussen said. “They historically do well with athletics, and I just want to be able to add my energy and enthusiasm to the programs and to the community.”

Rasmussen, originally from Boise, Idaho, graduated with a bachelor’s degree in sport management from Idaho State University and also played baseball for Treasure Valley Community College.

Additionally, Rasmussen spent time with the Atlanta Falcons serving as their operations and logistics intern for training camps. He also dealt with team travel, game day operations and facility management.

Rasmussen worked as an account executive for the Idaho Stampede, an NBA development league team under the Utah Jazz franchise.

Rasmussen will take over for former athletic director Scott Noble, who left LCCC earlier in the year to become the athletic director at Western New Mexico University.

About Logan Harrison (41 Articles)
My name is Logan Harrison, I am 21 years old. I was born in the great city of Minot, North Dakota. My father had been sent to the Minot Air Force base, where we lived for four years after I was born. In the year 2000, my father was reassigned to the the F.E. Warren Air Force Base where we ended up staying in smelly, outdated air force housing for three or four years until we moved off the base. I attended Anderson Elementary school and then enrolled into the East High system where I attended Carey Jr. High for three years. After graduating from East High in 2014, I received a scholarship to Eastern Wyoming College in Torrington, Wyoming, to compete on the golf team. During my time there we went to back-to-back National Championships and took second in the region my freshman year, and during my sophomore season we won the Region IX title. I always love a good meal with good company, and I enjoy hanging out and talking with friends and family. I will never pass up an opportunity to pet a dog or any pet. This past winter I took a trip to St. Thomas Island in the Virgin Islands where I stayed with a friend of mine and worked as a kayak guide for seven weeks. That whole experience is something I encourage everyone to do. Get out of your comfort zone and explore a new environment, culture, food, and activities. I went kayaking, snorkeling, and hiking almost everyday. The highlight of my time there was scuba diving, swimming with sharks and exploring an old shipwreck. The ocean is surprisingly very peaceful and magical when you finally reach the bottom. The whole experience taught me that life doesn't actually start until you reach the end of your comfort zone.
