Penn State All-Sports Museum & Varsity S Virtual Talk: Kerry McCoy and Beth Albright

On Friday, May 29, 2020, at 1:30 p.m. the Museum will be joined by Kerry McCoy ('97 Wrestling) and Beth Albright ('89 W Diving) for a live virtual chat on Facebook about their time while at Penn State and where they are now.

As a member of the Penn State wrestling team, McCoy was a three-time All-American, two-time national champion, two-time Penn State Athlete of the Year and two-time Nittany Lions Wrestler of the Year. In 1997, he won the Hodge Award as W.I.N. Magazine's Wrestler of the Year and graduated with a bachelor's degree in marketing. Upon graduation, McCoy went on to be a two-time Olympian and began a more than two decade long coaching journey. He was the head wrestling coach at the University of Maryland and Stanford University as well as an assistant coach at Lehigh University and Penn State University and was named Coach of the Year three times. In addition to coaching the 2008 Olympic Team, McCoy has coached numerous international teams for the United States and has served on several USA Wrestling, Olympic, and Paralympic committees. He was inducted into the National Wrestling Hall of Fame in 2014 and recognized as a Penn State University Distinguished Alumni in 2018. Off the mat, he has worked with the Beat the Streets organization to provide opportunities to inner-city kids through wrestling clinics and camps. McCoy retired from coaching in March 2019 to pursue other professional opportunities.

Albright was a springboard diver and competed on the Penn State swimming and diving team all four years of her college career. Out of the water, she was her team representative and founding member of the Student-Athlete Advisory Board (SAAB) as well as the D1 Northeast student-athlete representative to the NCAA's student-athlete council. Albright graduated from Penn State in 1989 with a bachelor's degree in labor and industrial relations. Upon graduation, she worked in human resources through 2017. After consulting with their financial adviser, Albright and her family opened a donor-advised family fund with the Foundation for Delaware County, supporting the environment, animal rescue, and pediatric oncology. She currently serves as board director for The Power of Professional Women and independent director at Darling Ingredients.
