JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - JU Director of Athletics Alan Verlander has been named president-elect of the Lutheran Social Services JetSet, a group of young executives that help the LSS in its mission with underprivileged youth. Verlander was a vital part of the JetSet last year, helping create the inaugural SportsFest - an all-day event that let the local children enjoy a day full of events while learning lessons from JU student-athletes and coaches. "Lutheran Social Services provides a great service to our local community in working with underprivileged youth and giving them a chance to be successful in life," Verlander said. "I'm extremely appreciative of being named president of the JetSet and look forward to very successful upcoming year."
