Alumni Speakers Program: Students Learn About Athletics Director Position from Mike Roy ’93

Posted February 22, 2011


Mike Roy ’93, athletics director at Minnechaug Regional High School in Wilbraham, MA, spoke to students in Assistant Professor Curt Hamakawa's Introductory Sport Management class on February 8. Roy told the students that even though he is essentially a one-person shop and wears many hats, he loves his job and “wouldn’t trade it for anything else.” At the end of his talk, Roy invited students interested in becoming a high school athletics director to spend a day or half-day with him on the job in order to gain a better idea of what the position entails.

If you have an interest in speaking to a class or offering your experiences to our students in another format, please contact Kristina Oleksak, associate director of advancement events, at 413-782-1557.
