I am passing “Thank You Rowdy” to you in order to show my appreciation for your continued support of Career Services. Your encouragement in my own pursuit of an opportunity to work with student-athletes has been instrumental. In addition, you have had a great impact on our student-athletes and the development of positive life skills they will carry with them beyond the playing field / court as well as beyond college.
