Northwestern College and Vice President for Athletics Dr. Micah Parker announced the hiring of Steve Carlson as the next Director of Athletic Communications at Northwestern College. He assumed his duties on July 12.
Carlson comes to Northwestern after serving as the graduate assistant at the American Rivers Conference (A-R-C), an NCAA Division III conference located in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. While at the conference office, Carlson assisted the Commissioner and Deputy Commissioner with day-to-day office affairs, such as website management, social media and statistical work.
While with the A-R-C, Carlson worked three NCAA Division III championships including two baseball championships (2019, 2021) and the 2019 volleyball championship. Gaining valuable experience working the national championships, Carlson is no stranger to successful athletic programs. He helped oversee the conference's 19 sponsored sports, highlighting student-athlete successes on and off the field or court of competition.
"I'm excited to announce the addition of Steve Carlson as the new Director of Athletic Communications," said Dr. Parker. "Steve is committed to our mission of Honoring Christ through excellence in athletics. Athletics communications continues to evolve and we hope to expand our digital footprint so more and more people get to know Raider athletics."
A 2019 graduate from Simpson College with a degree in sport administration, Carlson served as the student-manager for the Simpson Storm baseball team. He also served as a student-assistant in the athletic communications office at Simpson. While working with the A-R-C, he earned his master's degree in sport and recreation management from the University of Iowa this past May (2021).
A native of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, Carlson currently resides in Orange City and is a member of the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).
