Student in Michigan
Hi, my name is Jalen Kisner, I am currently pursuing my Bachelor's degree with a major of sports management and a minor in business administration from Central Michigan University. I spent my first two years of college at Northwood University where I consistently took 15-17 credits while also playing football, being a part of student organizations and staying on the Dean’s list with a GPA of 3.43. To assist my education, I have worked many events including the 2016 Capital One Orange Bowl, where I was given the opportunity by the director of partnerships to be responsible for approximately 20 people during the halftime performance. I have also worked security at events with as many as 20,000 attendees where I have excelled at verbal communication skills by listening to problems and de-escalating situations. Currently I work in the Central Michigan University athletic department as event management staff in the facilities and gameday operations department. Also, I hold a position on the planning committee for our annual Sports Management Association Conference as the travel and logistics coordinator. Through these events and experiences, I have reaffirmed my passion in the entertainment and sports industry.
