Clayton Higdon, an Owensboro native, graduated from WKU in 2015 with a Bachelor of Science in Sports Management with a minor in Business Administration. He then attended the WKU Graduate School and completed a master’s degree in Intercollegiate Athletic Administration in 2017. Following graduation, Clayton began working in Athletics with the Hilltopper Athletic Foundation on campus. While at HAF, he primarily worked with the Annual Fund, special events and game days.
