UNK junior Parker Smith uses his love for sports as an intern with Loper Athletics

Junior Parker Smith transferred from a community college to UNK in 2021. The Sumner-Eddyville-Miller graduate was drawn to the high-quality sports management program and impressed by the athletic facilities at the Health and Sports Center on campus.

Now a sports management major and marketing minor, Smith has worked as an intern for UNK Athletics since fall 2022 and plans to continue in this role until his anticipated graduation in spring 2024.

Smith hopes to one day become an athletic director but first wants to work in a marketing role in college athletics. His internship at UNK helped solidify that decision.
