THE FLATS – Georgia Tech athletics announced the addition of three new assistant athletics directors on Friday. Chris Breen, a member of Georgia Tech’s athletics staff since 2011, has been promoted to assistant A.D. for academic support services while Elizabeth Lancaster and Lance Markos join the Yellow Jackets as assistant A.D. for events and facilities and assistant A.D. for compliance, respectively. 

Breen is in his sixth year at Georgia Tech and 11th year in the academic support services field. He came to Georgia Tech in 2011 as an assistant director of student support services before being promoted to director in 2014. He works directly with Tech’s football student-athletes.

Prior to his arrival on The Flats, Breen spent five years as associate director of academic support for student-athletes at Seton Hall University, where he worked specifically with the Pirates’ men’s basketball program. At Seton Hall, he received the President’s Award for Student Service in 2010.

Breen played linebacker as a football student-athlete at Fordham University, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration in 2002. He was a team captain as a senior in 2001 and went on to coach Fordham’s linebackers for two seasons (2002-03). As an assistant coach, he helped lead his alma mater to the Patriot League championship in 2002. He received a master’s degree in counseling from Manhattan College in 2006.

“Chris’ impact within the academic support program for our football student-athletes set the ground work for the vital role he now plays with all sports and student-athletes,” associate A.D. for academic support services Phyllis LaBaw said. “He exemplifies the shared vision of providing a level of support whereby our student-athletes will flourish and backs it by an everyday focus on teamwork, respect, perseverance and honest hard work.”

“I am fortunate to work at a place where I can collaborate with talented team members and work with exceptional student-athletes, year after year. I’m looking forward to continued success for Georgia Tech athletics’ academic support team and leading an unparalleled staff,” Breen said. “Thank you to Phyllis, the entire GTAA student-athlete academic support services team and our administration and coaches for this opportunity and their continued support.”

JNEWS: Ucan, Veysel [MC2006] becomes US citizen



Could you pass U.S. citizenship test? Take our quiz to seeCitizenship test a challenge for immigrants but what about for those born here?

Many immigrants procrastinate, as Veysel Ucan did for years. The executive director of the Turkish Cultural Center of Albany emigrated to the U.S. from Turkey in 2001 at 23 and earned a master’s degree in computer engineering at Manhattan College. He worked at the Turkish Cultural Center in New York City before being hired in Albany in 2009.

“I always wanted to be a citizen, but I kept putting it off,” Ucan said. “I had lived here and studied American history, so I knew about 70 percent of the questions.”

He studied a booklet of 100 test questions and got quizzed by his wife, Ozgul, who grew up in Queens after emigrating from Turkey in eighth grade. She passed her citizenship test in 2005 in New York City.
