Friday, June 1, 2018

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Recent Centenary graduate Desiree Frey received a unique opportunity when she was selected to attend the NCAA Division III Career Next Steps Program.

The program, which took place Wednesday and Thursday, May 30-31, is part of the larger Career in Sports Program, which runs through June 3.

“As one of the many benefits of NCAA Division III membership, recently-graduated volleyball student-athlete Desiree Frey was selected to attend a Careers in Sport Conference at the NCAA Headquarters in Indianapolis,” said Director of Athletics and Recreation Bob Bunnell. “Desiree, who served as President of the Centenary Student-Athlete Advisory Committee for two years and completed an internship in the athletic department, is looking to make a career out of sports, with an eye at the collegiate level. I believe that Desiree has a very bright future in college athletics.”

According to the NCAA, participants in the program will explore potential careers in sports, with the primary focus on college athletics. The program is designed to assist students in charting their career paths, as well as provide an opportunity to network and learn from current athletics professionals. The goal is to build a pipeline of talented ethnic minority candidates, with an interest in Division III coaching and/or administration, in an effort to ultimately diversify the division.

“I am very honored to have been chosen for this amazing opportunity. I hope to one day obtain a job under the NCAA, and this is just a stepping stone in that direction,” said Frey.
