Seniors get close-up look at sports careers

Six seniors from Madison Academy and hundreds of other students from across Kentucky, Tennessee and Alabama participated in the Tennessee Titans Learning Lab. Students were given a behind the scene look at the business side of the Titans organization that included presentations in marketing, cheer-leading, administration, media relations, community relations, team travel, equipment management, turf management and mascots.

Our students left school at 9AM and traveled to LP field and checked in and went inside the stadium and sat in the red seats. They watched a welcome message on the video board then in groups of around 80 students started learning from the professionals. Kelvin De Valle was excited to see and speak with Mike Keith, “the voice of the Titans” since he is considering a career in sports broadcasting. Dante also appreciated the time to talk with sports professionals as he considers business options after graduation. Each student also received a t-shirt and tickets to the final Titans home game against the Colts.
