Peace Alumna Fills Tennis Opening

By on July 27, 2009 12:08 pm

Raleigh, NC-Peace College Director of Athletics Kelly Johnson announced Friday that 1978 alumna Kathy Jacobs will serve as the Pacers new head tennis coach.  A Raleigh native Jacobs lettered two years at Peace as a scholarship athlete in tennis and basketball.  After graduating from then junior college, Jacobs earned a Bachelor of Science in public health and Master of Arts in sports administration at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill.  She finished her collegiate tennis career with the Tar Heels junior varsity team.

 

Jacobs joins the Pacer staff following a six-year tenure from former coach Cy King.  King resigned in May and will continue his service with North Carolina’s chapter of the United States Tennis Association.

 

Since 1982, Jacobs has worked as a general contractor and real estate appraiser for both residential and commercial properties and currently owns her own appraisal service.  She received numerous recognitions within her profession, most recently earning the 2007 Champion Award with Triangle Commercial Real Estate Women.

 

In May 2008 Jacobs cofounded Lucy’s Helping Hands in an effort to help young girls "develop a firm inner foundation of self respect, confidence, and purpose" through compassion and service to others.  She spent one year prior coaching youth tennis clinics here in Raleigh.

 

Johnson quickly recognized Jacobs’ passion for sport and for Peace and expects her to transition smoothly back into collegiate athletics.  She is excited to return to campus and "ready to get started."
