David Neder lives in Tuscaloosa, AL while attending the University of Alabama in Sports Management. After doing his undergraduate work at the University of Georgia David worked for the YMCA, but his goal to work in intercollegiate athletics was still at the forefront of his mind. He now has an internship position with the Athletic Department’s Event Management team. David knows this scholarship will allow him to continue to focus on his education, both in the classroom and as an intern by providing him with the financial aid to help him focus on his career goals.

Meryl Hershfield hails from Vancouver Canada and sports have been a passion of hers since she was a very young child. One of her goals growing up was to play NCAA Division 1 soccer.  She achieved this by receiving a full athletic and academic scholarship at New Jersey Institute of Technology and graduated in May 2013 with a BS degree in Business.  Meryl is now a graduate student at Florida Atlantic University in the MBA-Sports Management program, and is currently an operations intern for the Florida Panthers and the BB&T Center.

 

2013-2014 Scholarship Recipients:

Kathryn RagaisisKathryn Ragaisis

I am extremely honored to be chosen as one of the recipients of the SMA Foundation Scholarship and would like to thank all those involved in the selection process for their generosity. This award provides me with great financial assistance heading into my final year of college.

I am currently pursuing an undergraduate degree in Management of Sports Industries at the University of New Haven and will graduate in Spring 2014.  

While working as a Stadium Operations Intern at Rentschler Field during summer 2012, I quickly realized Facility Management was something I could see myself making into a career. Since finishing up my internship I have worked with many organizations that have solidified my decision to work in this part of the industry. They include Contigo Sports Management, Manchester United, the Claudio Reyna Foundation and MetLife Stadium to name a few.

Upon graduation I plan to work in Facility and Event Management while pursuing a Master’s degree in Business Administration with a concentration in sports.

I look forward to learning and gaining valuable experience while working with the Stadium Managers Association.

I am extremely honored to be a recipient of the Stadium Managers Association Scholarship. I would like to show my great appreciation to the Stadium Managers Association Board of Directors. I am looking forward to all the many things the organization will offer me in the next year. I could not be more thankful for the aid the organization has provided that will help me finish my master’s degree. The scholarship was an unbelievable blessing from the Lord and I am grateful to the Stadium Managers Association Foundation for helping me further my education.

I am currently attending graduate school at The University of North Carolina at Pembroke. My master’s study is in Sports Administration. I recently graduated from UNCP a semester early in December 2012 with a bachelor’s degree in Sports Management. I was a two sport athlete at Pembroke participating on the cross-country team and track & field team all four years.

Along with my involvement in athletics, my internship with the Fayetteville FireAntz Hockey Team strongly influenced me in the choice of my future career. Upon graduating next year, I hope to begin a career working in the sports industry. Where ever I end up, I will be ready to be determined and passionate, and work hard in my field.
