It is with great pleasure that I announce the full-time hiring of Brent Henningfeld and Kevin Nugent to the Athletics Advancement team. As you know, both gentlemen have been serving in internship roles for us over the past year and are excited to transition to these new positions immediately.
A 2007 graduate of Ball State University with a degree in Sports Administration / Business, Brent has assumed a Coordinator role, with an added focus on our data management efforts. He is a South Bend native who attended both Christ the King Grade School and St Joe High School, and who aspires to someday have visited every major league baseball stadium. With 14 under his belt to date, Miller Park in Milwaukee with its world famous sausage race is the early favorite.
Kevin is a 2013 Notre Dame graduate with a degree in Marketing. Following in the footsteps of his father, Kevin Sr. (ND’78), “Nuge Jr.” was also a four-year member of our Irish hockey team and monogram winner. He will be the Associate Program Director and will help to develop, oversee and implement our new endowment initiative and associated benefits, along with many other marketing and stewardship-based projects.
The energy, enthusiasm and new ideas Brent and Kevin brought to our Athletics Advancement efforts over the past year were notable, and I would ask you to join me in congratulating them.
