MOUNT VERNON – Mount Vernon Nazarene University Athletics has announced the newest addition to its administration in Kelly Daniels, who has been hired as the administrative assistant to the department.

The position is an integral one for MVNU Athletics, as Daniels will have a hand in so many of the inner-workings of a collegiate athletic department.

Daniels is no stranger to MVNU. Over the course of the past three years, Daniels has worked in the University Relations and Development office. Recently she has also been able to complete her Master of Science degree in Management from MVNU.

Prior to coming to MVNU, Daniels served as a social worker for the state of Ohio. She graduated from Nazarene Bible College with a B.A. in Pastoral Ministries and was ordained by the Church of the Nazarene in 2006. Additionally, Daniels has served as a full-time children’s pastor and has co-pastored with her husband Brian Daniels in various roles over the past 12 years.

Brian currently is the youth pastor at Mount Vernon First Church of the Nazarene and obtained his Master of Ministry degree from MVNU in 2012. Their family, including children Cody (18), Briley (14), and Annabelle (14), volunteers at Escape Zone. Kelly will be starting an after-school program for fifth-grade girls through Escape Zone in the fall of 2018 at two local elementary schools.

“Having Kelly join our staff has been a breath of fresh air,” stated Director of Athletics Aaron Quinn.

“She not only brings a strong work ethic and skill set, but also a welcoming personality towards staff, students, and visitors to the Athletic Department.”

“I moved to MVNU Athletics because I really enjoy working with students, and I appreciate the passion that Aaron (Quinn) and Paul (McNeal) have for sharing Christ with the athletes and the community through kindness, respect and service,” Daniels expressed.

Please join us in welcoming Kelly Daniels to the pursuits of MVNU Athletics, as she has now officially begun her new role as of July 25.
