About Jan Weaver

The Jan Weaver Invitational honors the memory of one of Murray State University and Racer Athletics’ greatest supporters. When Jan passed away in 2009, Murray State lost a dear friend. A career teacher and administrator, Weaver has served her students for more than 40 years at the high school and college levels. Her tenure at Murray State in the College of Education (1985-97) included serving as Dean of the Department. Along with her husband, Dick, the two have helped Racer Athletics support its commitment to ensuring that Racer student-athletes have every opportunity to excel in the classroom as well as on the athletic fields. In 1997, Murray State Athletics created a state-of-the-art University Center named after the Weavers who funded its construction. The Weaver Academic Enhancement Center was opened at Roy Stewart Stadium on June 30, 1997.
