Anchor Drop, May 22, 2020: The New AD is Here

Good morning.

Well, after close to four months as the interim Athletic Director, Candice Storey Lee is now officially just the Athletic Director as of yesterday. Lee is the first black woman to serve as the Athletic Director at an SEC school, and only the fifth black Athletic Director at all (joining her two immediate predecessors at Vanderbilt, Auburn’s Allan Greene, and former Georgia AD Damon Evans.)

The Hustler had an interview with the new AD yesterday, and the reaction to Lee’s elevation seems to be mostly positive, particularly from current and former Vanderbilt student-athletes.
