Springfield College Hosts Athletic Administration Leadership Series


The Springfield College Athletic Administration Graduate Program hosted its annual leadership series for the spring semester titled, “One Graduate Degree. Endless Possibilities,” on Wednesday, March 30, in the Cleveland E. and Phyllis B. Dodge Room located in the Flynn Campus Union. 

The event featured panelists Ryan Bamford, G’03, University of Massachusetts-Amherst director of athletics; Rachel Horn, G’03, Eaglebrook School director of athletics; and Heath Rollins ’99, G’03, Wayland (Mass.) High School director of athletics.

All three panelists earned a master of science degree from Springfield College in 2003, and they gained experience working in the Springfield College Office of Athletics during their graduate school years. The trio represented three different levels of athletic administration, including junior high school, high school, and college athletics.

Launched in the spring of 2011, the Athletic Administration Leadership Series is held each semester and alternates a focus between high school and intercollegiate athletics.
