USD Students Coordinate SD High School Football Championships
"It's hard to say how many hours we've put into the championship,” said Staab, a sport marketing and media major. “There hasn't been a day where we haven't invested any time into it. I can be in the middle of class and think of a phone call or email I have to make.”
Working with other kinesiology and sport management majors, Staab has been one of two student leaders to chair a group of 32 students preparing for an influx of thousands of visitors to Vermillion over the course of the three day football championships. Corey Price, a senior sport management major also chairs the event committee.
“For the last seven weeks all my time has revolved around making sure the championships go off without a problem,” she said.
And while preparation has been key, Staab said the volunteers will continue to help coordinate the event hosted at the DakotaDome.
“During the game we'll be working with radio personnel and media, posting our social media with live updates, pictures and videos, and running the promotions on the field,” said Staab.
Overall, Staab said she’s learned many lessons including time management and attention to detail.
“Even with little things...we've let a few mistakes slip past us, but we learned from those,” she said.
