Volunteering with Wolfpack Sports Properties (November 15)

Trying to stay warm before the game starts
We again had an awesome opportunity for several of our academy freshmen and sophomores to help out at an NC State football game this past weekend. Jim Moran of Wolfpack Sports Properties tasked us with distributing hand warmers, provided by game sponsor Kangaroo Express, to fans as they entered the gates. They were definitely appreciated on such a chilly day!

Mr. Moran shared with us some more insight on careers in the sports marketing field, including the likely necessity of working your way up from an internship position and the importance of making sure to get everything right in a game-day situation, where you typically only have one shot to execute a promotion.

Fortunately, the results on the field were much better as the Wolfpack won 42-13, and we also got to see a great halftime show for Military Appreciation Day, which featured a field-size American flag and NC State Pipe and Drums joining the marching band.
