IMMERSED

IN THE FIELD

Dr. Brandon Allen took a select group of students to Jackson for the

Sanderson Farms Championship PGA Tournament during the fall

semester. The students from his Introduction to Sport Management

class had the opportunity to meet with Jonah Beck, the director of

operations, and Kacie Towles, the volunteer coordinator, to discuss

sponsorship strategies, facility management and event logistics.

“For the past four years, our program has brought students to

volunteer at Sanderson Farms Championship. Students are able to

visualize the magnitude of operating a mega event while being able to

make connections with business leaders from all over the world. This

trip brings their academic studies to life,” said Dr. Allen.
