As part of its ongoing 75th Anniversary campaign, the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) has released the third installment of its 75th Anniversary Feature Series.

George E. Killian and Spencer Haywood helped raise the NJCAA's profile during the 1960s.

As part of its year-long celebration of its 75th Anniversary, the national headquarters of the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) has released the third of nine insightful articles that will make up the NJCAA 75th Anniversary Feature Series. The third exposition, titled “George E. Killian and Spencer Haywood Take the NJCAA to New Heights in the 1960s,” highlights the Association’s transition to new leadership along with a rising basketball star that reached international fame.

Also, a special 75th Anniversary Q&A feature with longtime NJCAA Executive Director George E. Killian is available to compliment this month’s Feature Series.

Both features are available in the November 2012 edition of the NJCAA Review– the official publication of the NJCAA – and can also be accessed by visiting the special 75th Anniversary section of the organization’s website at http://www.njcaa.org/75.
