RAYMOND – Nathan Werremeyer has been chosen as the new Hinds Community College Athletic Director, beginning on July 1.

A Missouri native, Werremeyer has extensive experience serving as an Assistant Athletic Director and Compliance Coordinator at Dodge City Community College in Dodge City, Kansas, where he is currently, and at Mineral Area College in Park Hills, Mo., where he served for five years. Prior to that, he served nine years as an Athletic Trainer for Athletico Physical Therapy in Farmington, Mo.

“After an extensive search, I am pleased that Hinds Community College has selected an athletic director with the experience and knowledge of NJCAA athletics that Mr. Werremeyer brings,” said Randall Harris, vice president of Operations and Student Services. “We look forward to having Mr. Werremeyer lead our athletic department along with our fundraising efforts as we move into the next era of Hinds athletics.”

In his current role at Dodge City, he is responsible for all conference, Region VI and NJCAA compliance, including all paperwork required to establish athletes’ eligibility, fiscal management of the athletic scholarship and operational budgets as well as overseeing aspects of business and facility operations, and serves as the sports administrator for many of Dodge City’s 17 sports. This past year, Werremeyer spearheaded the transition to a new Electronic Medical Records (EMR) system as well as helping to establish a new online ticketing system for all games.

He served on numerous health and safety committees through the COVID-19 pandemic that helped develop policies and procedures for a safe return to campus and games this year. He also serves as Division Chair for Health, PE and Recreation at Dodge City and since 2011 has been continuing to serve as an adjunct instructor at Mineral Area College, teaching Intro to Sports Management, Principles of Strength Training and Care and Prevention of Athletic Injuries.

“Words can’t begin to express the appreciation I have for President Vacik and VP Harris for choosing and entrusting me to lead Hinds Athletics into the next chapter,” Werremeyer said. “It’s an exciting feeling to know that in a few short weeks my family and I will be heading to Raymond to become part of the Hinds Community College family. This is an incredible opportunity and I can’t wait to get started!”

He received a bachelor’s degree in Athletic Training and Health Education at Central Methodist University in Fayette, Mo., in 2007 and a master’s degree in Sport Management at Missouri Baptist University in St. Louis in 2014.

He is a member of a number of professional and civic organizations, including the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics and the National Alliance of Two-Year College Athletic Administrators.

He and his wife Sarah have two sons.
