Becky Thompson assumed the role of Wildcat Club Director in August of 2007. She is no stranger to the Wildcat community, having worked in WSU’s Alumni Relations since 1998, most recently as associate director. She was involved in planning the grand opening of the Stewart Stadium Sky Suites in 2001, organizing numerous alumni tailgate events, and helping with the formation of the Purple Pak student group, whose members show their school spirit at athletic events and pep rallies.
“Becky brings tremendous professionalism, dedication and enthusiasm for Weber State to the Wildcat Club,” said WSU athletic director Jerry Graybeal. “She has a knack for bringing creativity to events that will elevate the Wildcat Club to a whole new level.”
Established in 1962, the Wildcat Club has more than 780 members, including private and corporate sponsors. Wildcat Club members support WSU Athletics by donating to student-athlete scholarship funds, organizing road trips to support the teams at away games, and participating in other booster activities. The Wildcat Club generates community excitement for WSU’s NCAA teams by sponsoring activities such as the Jr. Wildcat Club (in conjunction with the WSU Alumni Association), coaches’ luncheons, and the annual Wildcat Club Athletic Hall of Fame induction ceremony. In addition to the Cat Bash dinner and auction, the club helps raise funds for student-athlete scholarships through the annual Gary Crompton Golf Classic and the popular split-the-pot raffles on game days.
Becky, an Ogden native, and her husband Wayne, have two daughters, one grandson and one granddaughter.
