GSU adds King to athletics administration

Grambling State University Vice President of Intercollegiate Athletics, Dr. Trayvean Scott, announced on Tuesday the addition of Karmen King as the Senior Associate AD for Compliance. 

King comes to Grambling from Southern University and A&M College where she served as the Associate AD for Student Services and Title IX. 

“We are excited to welcome Karmen to the Grambing State University family,” said Scott. “She has a strong history of success as an innovative leader in collegiate athletics, and she will immediately elevate our program with her comprehensive knowledge on NCAA matters and the student-athlete experience. At each stop of her career, she has been relentlessly committed to advancing the well-being and success of young men and women in the classroom, in the community and in competition.” 

King, who worked at Southern from 2015-2021, helped spearhead an unprecedented academic recovery of Southern Athletics as it relates to the Academic Progress Rate (APR).  

Prior to her position at Southern, King, who earned Honorable Mention at the Texas Intercollegiate Press Association of on-site editorial writing, worked at Southeastern Louisiana University from 2014-2015 as Compliance and Title IX.  

A member of N4A and NAAC, King, who grew up around athletics as her father was a retired fastpitch softball and basketball coach, graduated from Sam Houston State University with a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and Middle East Studies.
