Getting to know Outstanding Sport Management Award Recipient: Clay Long
How do you feel about winning this award?
I am extremely humbled and blessed to receive this award. I can not thank all the Sport Management faculty enough for these last four years. Specifically thank you to Dr Edwin Lindsay for being a mentor of mine during my time here at NC State. I can not wait to see what the future holds for me post graduation from this great program.
What made you decide to major in Sport Management?
How and why did you create the HOWL Summit?
About 2 years ago the officers of the Sport Management Club decided to create something that had never been done before for the Sport Management program which became the H.O.W.L. Summit. We wanted to give our students a chance to learn about everything the sport sector has to offer. Through two years of planning we executed this historic event on March 2nd, and 3rd of 2019. This would not have been possible without the club officers, and members who jumped in to help the planning process.
