Amy Fouty, athletic turf manager for Spartan Stadium at Michigan State University, has been appointed to fill the Colleges and Universities Board Member position in the Sports Turf Managers Association (STMA) Board of Directors.
Fouty will complete the remaining term of Jay Warnick, who resigned in November after moving to World Class Athletic Surfaces from BYU-Idaho. STMA bylaws require that board members who become employed in a category other than the one they were elected to represent must resign from the Board of Directors.
Fouty manages the Spartan Stadium field, the football practice complex and new athletic field construction for the athletic department at Michigan State University. She served as president of the Michigan Sports Turf Managers Association, serves on the education and grants committee for the Michigan Turfgrass Foundation, is active on three national STMA committees and has authored several articles. Fouty was also awarded the prestigious STMA Field of the Year for College Football Fields in 2006.
“I am privileged to be asked to serve our membership, and I look forward to volunteering my time and energy for the association,” Fouty says.
