Major: Sports Leadership During a regular day, our group of Gabe night interns come in about 4 hours before game time to set up the suites in the Van Andel Arena. After this, we head down to the box office where our primary responsibility is to sell game tickets, manage will call, and help with ticket resolution. After this, we are responsible for helping run and clean up intermission games on the ice, assisting the mascots with their needs, and performing T-shirt toss. Following the game we assist with clean-up, jersey auctions, giveaways, and selling tickets to future games.
Major: Sports Leadership I was responsible for planning and leading a 14 day backpacking trip to Isle Royale National Park in the waters of Lake Superior. I planned a program for my participants that was focused around self and group awareness growth goals. I maintained the health and safety of the group during the trip and provided a foundation that fostered self-sufficiency among the participants. Off trail, I completed property maintenance, gear repair and various community tasks as needed.
