The TU Lettermen's Association held its third annual Career Networking Night for all student-athletes on Nov. 5 in the Lorton Performance Center. More than 200 student-athletes attended this career building opportunity. The night kicked off with a keynote address from Vice President and Director of Athletics, Dr. Derrick Gragg. Dr. Gragg provided insight on life after graduation along with tips for achieving success in the professional world.

Following Dr. Gragg's address, student-athletes had the chance to participate in two 20-minute round table sessions where 14 different business leaders and TU alumni letter winners led discussion. Jennifer DeSpain (Pharmaceutical Sales; Women's Tennis), Aaron Tallman (Tulsa Police; Football), Bill Clark (Orthopedic Surgeon; Cheer), T. Lane Wilson (Magistrate Judge; Tennis), Tim Martin (Project Manager; Football) and Steve August (Finance; Football) are just a few who shared experiences from their time at TU and the career path that led them to where they are today.

TU Lettermen's Association hosts various enrichment activities designed to enhance the student-athlete experience while also preparing them for life after sports.
