WINCHESTER, Va. - A pair of former Shenandoah University student-athletes are on the their way to Indianapolis today to participate in the NCAA Career in Sports Forum.

Jordan Hunter '18 and Malik Henry '18, who both graduated earlier this month, are two of 200 student-athletes from around the country that have been selected by the NCAA to participate in this four-day forum at the national headquarters.

This annual event is designed to assist student-athletes in charting career paths, with primary focus on college athletics, while also providing an opportunity to network with and learn from current athletics professionals. 

Topics to be covered include:

  • how personal values intersect with career opportunities
  • how behavioral styles impact individual effectiveness
  • key professional and career development information to assist with the transition from student-athlete to a professional position
  • the roles of college coaches and athletics administrators

Hunter, who played four years of basketball and was a team captain for the Hornets, is excited about this opportunity. "Attending the Career in Sports Forum means a great deal to me because it provides an opportunity to see where I want to be in the future," Hunter said. "We get to learn from different levels of professionals and learn how to one day fill their shoes as future leaders. 

"I hope to gain knowledge on my career path and the necessary steps to maximize my success. I also look forward to gaining different relationships and being able to network with people from across the country." 

Henry, a Newport News native and a linebacker for the football team, heads to Indianapolis after being inducted into the ODK national leadership honor society in January 2017. "To attend the Career in Sports Forum I had to be nominated, and means that someone saw something in me," Henry said. "I hope to take advantage of this opportunity and learn as much as possible to build on my future success. 

"I'm looking to build connections and gain knowledge at the Forum. These events are great for meeting people who have some of the same and different ideas about sports and I really enjoy discussing those ideas. I look forward to a great weekend!"
