C of I Hires Jim Everett, Former CEO of the YMCA, as New Swim Coach

by College of Idaho

After retiring from his post at the YMCA in December, Everett was not sure what was next, but he knew it had to be something that aligned with his purpose and passion. Coaching was always in his mind.

Everett, a 10-time Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association champion, three year co-captain, four year Most Valuable Swimmer and the first swimmer inducted into the Albion College Hall of Fame, previously served as head swim coach at the Marietta YMCA in Ohio  and the Boise YMCA, taking both programs to Nationals for the first time. Everett coached multiple athletes who went on to become national champions, including one who was an Olympic Gold medalist and world record holder. Though he spent 41 years working for the “Y”—including building the Treasure Valley facilities into some of the best in the United States—coaching was his calling.

“I have truly come full circle,” Everett said. “I began as a swim coach, and to have the opportunity to return to this calling is a dream come true!”

New College of Idaho Library Aims To Open Next February

The College of Idaho will soon be home to one of the most architecturally beautiful, state-of-the-art buildings in the Gem State — one that will serve as a new intellectual commons for C of I students, faculty and the entire campus community.

In February 2016 the C of I broke ground for Cruzen-Murray Library, which will serve as a new campus gateway at the intersection of 21st Street and Cleveland Boulevard. The building is a gift from the estate of the late Deborah Cruzen Murray and her husband, Glenn Richard Murray, Jr.

Cruzen-Murray Library will stand out on the College’s historic campus. Its light-infused, glass-and-steel design has a sleek, modern look and feel. The three-story, 60,000 square-foot facility will include traditional holdings of books and journals, as well as private and group study areas, a 24/7 study space, multimedia classrooms, a café, and public spaces for readings, lectures and exhibitions.
