Looking Towards a Future in Sports Management

The students had the opportunity to engage in a panel discussion from front office executive from both the New York Islanders and the Brooklyn Nets, who spoke about many of the career paths that exist in the field of collegiate and professional sports.  Following this panel, students had the opportunity to meet with representatives from various colleges that offer Sport Management as a major.  All students who attended this event were invited to stay for that evening's NBA game between the Nets and Phoenix Suns.
The St. Edmund contingent had a special treat, as they were able to take a pre-game tour of the scorer's table and media area, spending a few minutes visiting with Nets public address announcer David Diamante and legendary official scorer Herb Turetzky, who has been with the Nets for all 50 seasons of their history.  This added bonus was coordinated by SEP Co-Directors of Athletics, Jim Grillo '02 (who is a game-clock operator for the Nets) and Dan Wiatre.
