Springfield, Mass. - October 27, 2017 - Springfield College junior Marlowe Scott (Dorchester, Mass.) was selected to attend the 2018 NCAA Division III Student Immersion Program this January in conjunction with the NCAA Convention in Indianapolis, Ind. Scott is one of only 40 Division III student-athletes accepted into the program.
While in Indianapolis, Scott, who is a standout member of the Pride's football team, will participate in programming specific to student-athletes and will have the opportunity to attend the legislative voting session. In addition, the Sport Management major, along with the other attendees, will receive DiSC training, and participate in welcome and debrief meetings. The goal of the Immersion Program is to build a pipeline of talented ethnic minority candidates, with an interest in Division III coaching and/or administration, in an effort to ultimately diversify the division.
This marks the second-straight year that Springfield College has had a student-athlete selected for this incredible opportunity, as last year Nick Ruiz attended the national convention in Nashville.
"I'm proud of Marlowe for taking advantage of this special opportunity," said Springfield College Director of Athletics, Dr. Craig Poisson. "It speaks volumes that NCAA administrators have chosen a student-athlete from Springfield College to attend the national convention the last two years, and Marlowe is a great representative of our institution. Surrounding himself with thousands of athletic administrators, and applying what he's learned in the classroom as a sport management major, will make for several special days for Marlowe."
