SARATOGA SPRINGS — Bill Jones, Skidmore College’s senior athletic communications manager, has announced his retirement.

“Skidmore will always be special to me,” Jones said in a statement. “I’ve had a ring-side seat to the growth of the athletic program that was in its infancy when I arrived 40 years ago.”

In his time at Skidmore, Jones was witness to eleven team national championships, over 200 All-Americans, nearly 100 conference titles, and 25 CSC Academic All-Americans.

Jones said that “the list of colleagues who have been a part of this journey is long, but it was former athletic director Tim Brown who gave me a chance in 1984, and it has been current athletic director Gail Cummings-Danson who has let me be a part of the numerous successes of the program over recent years.”

“The announcement of Bill’s retirement is a well-deserved celebration after an unprecedented 40-year tenure at Skidmore College,” Cummings-Danson said. “Bill has been a valuable asset and contributor to the promotion and growth of Skidmore Athletics. He has a wealth of information and institutional knowledge that we have been reliant on and will miss upon his retirement.”

Jones’ last day at Skidmore will be March 11.
