Saint Mary’s senior reflects on time as student football manager

first_imgUpon arriving to campus her first year, Saint Mary’s senior Ashley DeJonge said she knew she wanted to participate in the football student managing program. “I knew about the student managing program before I even stepped on campus as a student,” DeJonge said in an email. “I know a couple people who were involved as a manager for other sports and spoke very highly of the program, so I thought I’d give it a try.”Students interested in the program must join during their freshman year, so DeJonge began her involvement during her first year of studies. “I’ve been a manager for the football team since my freshman year,” she said. “That’s when anyone who is interested needs to get involved because of the way continuing on in the program works.”Within the program, she works both practices and games in order to assist the team. “We work every practice and walk-through the team has, set up the locker room before game days and work on the sidelines of the home games,” DeJonge said. “Some of us even get the opportunity to travel to all the away games.”DeJonge said her participation in the football management program has given her an introduction into the sports industry — a field in which she said she hopes to continue working after graduation.“My dream is to work in the sports industry someday, so I felt this would be a great opportunity to get involved with an athletic program and to build my resume,” she added. In addition to building her resume, football management has taught her about all of the work that goes into a game day, she said. “I love getting to see everything that happens behind the scenes,” DeJonge said. “I’ve learned so much about an athletic team and its program that I would have never imagined goes into a game day production.”However, there are also obstacles that come with working in the field, DeJonge said. “At times being a female in this position presents a challenge where I’m unable to help out in areas that are needed, such as having to be in the locker room. But these situations definitely have not hindered my ability to work in this program,” she said.Nonetheless, DeJonge said her experience at Saint Mary’s has given her the confidence to continue working in the field. “Saint Mary’s really prides themselves on empowering women, so this mentality has helped me succeed in a male-dominant position,” she said. If any first year students have an interest in joining, DeJonge said she recommends they give it a try. Any freshmen that would like to become involved are welcome to send her an email, she said. “Even if you are on the line about it, sign up and work a practice,” DeJonge said. “Every freshman will have the opportunity to work practices and some will even get lucky enough to work a game. It’s an amazing opportunity no matter how long your experience is.”Tags: football manager, SMC football manager, student managerlast_img read more

What are CUSOs doing?

first_imgWhat are CUSOs doing? This is a very common question I hear from credit union and CUSO folks. From our vantage point of working with NACUSO and working with hundreds of CUSOs in the past 30 years, we have a unique perspective to know the CUSO universe. Even NCUA used to call us on CUSO industry questions from time to time. Now that CUSOs are becoming an essential part of the credit union business model, existing CUSOs are being asked to provide more services and new CUSOs are being formed. Will there ever come a day when we have more CUSOs than credit unions…maybe?Since the role of CUSOs is becoming so important to the success and survival of credit unions, NCUA saw the need to know more about CUSOs. While NACUSO and NCUA had differing views on whether CUSOs could be required to report directly to NCUA, the silver lining is a better knowledge base about CUSOs.The good news is that the NCUA’s CUSO Registry is a searchable data base and it attempts to be as comprehensive as possible.   The bad news is that NCUA does not share much data… only the CUSO’s name, address, telephone number, web site and services.  CUSOs were nervous about NCUA sharing their proprietary data and NCUA erred on the conservative side. continue reading » 10SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Hecking: No City bid for De Bruyne

first_img Press Association “We have no offer from Manchester City. No offer from anybody. Full stop,” he said. “There is nothing from my side to say, there is no official offer in to Wolfsburg. He has been very good with me. I’m not here to talk about contractual matters, he has no clause but that isn’t a question for us.” De Bruyne scored 10 goals in the league last season as Wolfsburg finished second to Bayern Munich, but he also laid on an impressive 21 assists. His former boss at Chelsea, Jose Mourinho, questioned his attitude to being part of a big squad, something De Bruyne would have to come to terms with at City given their wealth of attacking options, including the recent acquisition of fellow winger Raheem Sterling from Liverpool. Hecking did state that he wants the uncertainty around De Bruyne to end as he looks to build on a successful season, which also saw Wolfsburg lift the DFB-Pokal, with De Bruyne scoring in the 3-1 win over Borussia Dortmund. “Of course we want to see a conclusion,” the coach said. “We had a great season and were second last year. Kevin De Bruyne played a big role in this of course, and we want to finish the speculation soon. “It (speculation) is great for the media but as a coach I have to concentrate on my team, and we have to make sure we start well on August 14 against Eintracht Frankfurt.” Wolfsburg coach Dieter Hecking insists the Bundesliga runners-up have received no bids from Manchester City for winger Kevin De Bruyne.center_img The 24-year-old former Chelsea player has been linked with a move to the Etihad Stadium all summer, with the suggested fee needed to prise him away from the Volkswagen Arena set to break the British transfer record. But Hecking, speaking after his side lost 2-1 to Villarreal in the opening game of the 2015 Emirates Cup, says no-one has made a move to sign the Belgium international. last_img read more

Democratic memo to get shots causes NASCAR flap

first_img“What do they know about NASCAR that we don’t?” said Dr. David Weber, a professor of medicine and public health at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Weber said everyone should be up to date on standard vaccinations, but he saw no need for special vaccinations to visit a health-care facility or a NASCAR event. Debbie Crane, a spokeswoman for the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services, said such shots are recommended for “general health” for all adults – but not for any specific circumstance. “The very idea of immunization is laughable,” said Lowe’s Motor Speedway President Humpy Wheeler. “It’s like taping your ankles to go to the mailbox.” He noted that no NASCAR event has ever sparked an outbreak – “other than a few headaches because somebody’s favorite driver ran out of gas, or maybe a morning hangover.” There are lots of voters at the track, and that makes politicians of both parties regulars at NASCAR. There’s no doubt the crowds trend Republican, but that hasn’t stopped Democrats from seeking support at the races. In the days leading up to the Bank of America 500, Lt. Gov. Beverly Perdue held a political reception near the track’s Turn 4. Among those hosting the Democratic gubernatorial candidate were Wheeler, NASCAR president Mike Helton, and team owners Rick Hendrick and Felix Sabates – both registered Republicans. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

By Mike Baker THE ASSOCIATED PRESS RALEIGH, N.C. – It got the GOP’s engines revving – a Democratic official suggesting staffers get immunized for several diseases before heading south from Washington and into the Red State wilds of NASCAR country to conduct research at a pair of races. The reaction on both sides illustrates just how valuable candidates for elected office consider the votes of NASCAR fans who pack grandstands by the thousands every weekend and the donations of business leaders who spend millions to sponsor the sport. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.It started last month, when an official with the House Committee on Homeland Security suggested that staff aides get immunizations before visiting health facilities at Alabama’s Talladega Superspeedway and North Carolina’s Lowe’s Motor Speedway, where the Bank of America 500 was run Saturday. In an e-mail, a staffer who works for committee chairman Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., noted an “unusual need for whomever attending to be vaccinated against hepatitis A and B,” as well as “the more normal things – tetanus, diphtheria, and of course, seasonal influenza.” The note didn’t explain why the committee saw such concern. It didn’t mention NASCAR or the races at the tracks at all. But the implication was enough to draw a snarky complaint from Republican Rep. Robin Hayes, whose district includes Lowe’s Motor Speedway. “I have never heard of immunizations for domestic travel, and … I feel compelled to ask why the heck the committee feels that immunizations are needed to travel to my hometown,” wrote Hayes. Thompson responded to Hayes that such immunizations “are recommended for public safety professionals working in areas such as hospitals, holding areas and similar locations.” But the staffers were only scheduled to visit a few health-care facilities – not work at them. last_img read more
