Q & A:
Favorite Memory or Part About your Job?
Terry said impacting student athletes
Kayla commented that she enjoys that her work is community and student oriented. Also, the fact that what she is doing everyday is making an impact, as well as being able to build relationships with a lot of different kids and thus establish lifelong relationships with those kids.
DeLaina really likes that she gets to see the potential of other people, that refusal to give up on someone. One example she mentioned was her relationship with Michigan State football player Khari Willis, who was a keynote speaker at the Big Ten football media days this year.
Kat said she values team achievements. She spoke upon the fact that coaches give a lot up for those moments and to be with someone elses kids and so to see that moment of elation and everybody coming together as a team is special. She specifically mentioned the 2014 men's basketball final four run.
Thank you to Terry, Kayla, DeLaina, and Kat for taking the time to share their invaluable insight with our club about the ins and outs of working in such a competitive industry and working through gender dynamics in the workplace.
My name is Karli Schmitz and on behalf of the entire board, we hope you find this information valuable.
