Dana Brooks, the former dean of the College of Physical Activity and Sports Sciences, is one of five who will be honored Saturday (June 10) for their loyalty and service to West Virginia University as they are inducted into the Order of Vandalia.
The 2023 inductees include Brooks, Robert DiClerico, Pam Maphis Larrick, Nora MacDonald and J. Wayne Richards. Saturday's ceremony will also honor the memories of five Vandalians who have died in the past year — J. William Douglas, Class of 2015; Elmo Hurst, Class of 1994; Edna Bennett Pierce, Class of 2012; Peter White, Class of 2001 and Mary Kathryne Wiedebusch, Class of 2007.
Brooks retired as dean of the former College of Physical Activity and Sport Sciences in 2019 after serving the University for more than four decades. During that time, he also worked for 32 years as program administrator for the National Youth Sports Program on campus, positively impacting the lives of more than 8,000 children and families in the Mountain State.
