Upper Iowa University issued the following announcement on May 31.
Upper Iowa rising senior Kenzie Soeken, a member of the women's indoor and outdoor track and field team, was selected from a large group of nominated student-athletes to be a part of the NCAA Career in Sports Forum this summer in Indianapolis, Ind. at the NCAA national office.
The NCAA Career in Sports Forum, which focuses primarily on careers in college athletics, will be held from June 6-9 and will host 200 student-athletes from all levels of the NCAA's national landscape.
The forum focuses on the one thing all student-athletes have in common, regardless of the sport they play, when they graduate: moving into the workforce.
The Career in Sports Forum, an annual educational forum hosted by the NCAA, brings the 200 student-athletes together to learn and explore potential careers in sports.
This unique, four-day forum is designed to assist student-athletes in charting their career paths, as well as provide an opportunity to network and learn from current athletics professionals.
The cutting-edge topics covered by industry experts include: how personal values intersect with career opportunities, how behavioral styles impact individual effectiveness, the key professional and career development information to assist with the transition from a student-athlete to a professional, and the role of the college coach or athletics administrator. Participants will network with peers, as well as key decision-makers at the campus, conference and national level of college athletics.
