Mathew Gargano, Business Administration Instructor, comments on working with athletic academic team member "Shenika (Thorb), Athletic Academic Success Coach, did an amazing job overseeing this project, and it would not be where it is without her care, dedication, and good work. She was also awesome to work with."  Mr. Gargano also spoke about his experience with working with Jaguar student-athletes Chance Poole and Caleel Mitchell, "It was a rich and gratifying experience interacting with our student-athletes. I had a lot of fun working with them on this experiential learning project. It was a privilege to help them grow their academic skillset, and to see them shine in the classroom as well as on the court. GO JAGS!
