Bob Condron, who retired from the U.S. Olympic Committee on Jan. 26, 2012 as longtime director for media and public relations, will be honored as recipient of the Keith Jackson Eternal Flame Award as well as a CoSIDA Lifetime Achievement Award this summer at the national convention in St. Louis, Mo.
The Keith Jackson Eternal Flame Award is presented to an individual who has made a lasting contribution to intercollegiate athletics, has demonstrated a long and consistent commitment to excellence and has been a loyal supporter of CoSIDA and its mission.
Condron is only the eighth recipient of the Jackson Award, as the honor is not automatically presented each year. He is the first recipient since 2009.
Condron will be recognized for his 28 years of service to the USOC from 1983-2012 in addition to serving as the assistant athletic director and sports information director at Southern Methodist University from 1971-83 and assistant sports information director at Texas Tech from 1968-71.
