|Cool Fact: In the SEM 460 Senior Seminar
in Sport and Entertainment Management,
Program Director Dr. Bob Bunnell challenged
his class of 24 students to come up with a
community service project that the class could
do this semester. After much discussion, the
class chose to collect gently-used sporting goods
and sportswear from Neumann and several surrounding elementary and high schools to donate
to the Chester Boys and Girls Club. The class
was able to collect 273 usable items, ranging
from hockey sticks to soccer shinguards,
baseball and softball bats, shorts, jerseys,
lacrosse sticks, and all different types
of sports balls.
