Springfield College Hosts Athletic Administration Leadership Series

SPRINGFIELD — The Springfield College Athletic Administration Graduate Program will host its annual spring leadership series, titled “One Graduate Degree. Endless Possibilities,” on Wednesday, March 30, at 7 p.m. in the Cleveland E. and Phyllis B. Dodge Room in the Flynn Campus Union. The event is free and open to the public.

The event features panelists Ryan Bamford, UMass Amherst director of Athletics; Rachel Horn, Eaglebrook School director of Athletics; and Heath Rollins, Wayland High School director of Athletics.

All three panelists earned a master’s degree from Springfield College in 2003, and they gained experience working in the Springfield College Office of Athletics during their graduate-school years. The trio represent three different levels of athletic administration, including junior high school, high school, and college athletics.

Launched in the spring of 2011, the Athletic Administration Leadership Series is held each semester and alternates a focus between high school and intercollegiate athletics.
