Nancy Greene works behind-the-scenes with Tennessee Tech Athletics, but without her vigilant watch and informed work, no Golden Eagle student-athlete would make a basket, score a touchdown and shoot a birdie. Greene serves as the Administrative Assistant for NCAA Certification in Tech’s Office of Records and Registration, a position she has held since 1993 except for brief stints in the offices of Internal Audit and Affirmative Action.
A native of Johnson City, Tenn., and graduate of Science Hill High School, she went on to receive three degrees. First came a bachelor’s degree from Western Kentucky University in biology in 1979. She went on to add a master’s in 1981 and Ph.D. in 1985, both in animal science from the University of Tennessee.
While she doesn’t work directly with Tech’s student-athletes, she is a key person in their certification and eligibility, as well as monitoring their continued progress toward a degree.
Working closely with both the Academics and Compliance personnel within Athletics, Greene also compiles and submits Tech’s annual APR and GSR reports and works toward resolving any eligibility issues that arise. She monitors scheduling and progress of the more than 300 Tech student-athletes to ensure that any schedule changes comply with requirements and keep the athletes moving toward graduation.
Knowledgeable in all NCAA eligibility and compliance rules, Greene works with incoming freshmen for their initial eligibility, and to ensure that transfer students’ transcripts are in compliance and meet TTU requirements. She also keeps updated on all current student-athletes and works with academic advisors.
Nancy and her husband Bruce, a TTU agriculture professor, have been married 31 years and have two grown children, daughter Mary and son Andy.
