The Midnight Golf Program has impacted my life so much and has been another support system for me in so many ways since my time as a proud member of the organization to now as a proud alumnus! Being in the actual program helped me learn how to social network in a comfortable way where I could still be myself while being professional. They’ve also taught me how to play the game of golf and it wasn’t until I graduated from the program and started my college journey that I learned the importance of why the game of golf was implied, especially in a professional setting. My MGP family has been the people I could call on when I felt like my back was against the wall; they’ve supplied not only opportunities but supplies for me to be successful during my education, and they’ve put me in front of different alumni who have the same career goals and/or careers, allowing me to develop more mentors within the program. I’ve had the opportunity to work for different national-level professional teams within the world of sports, including the NBA, NFL, and NHL, and the skills that I’ve learned from MGP have helped me talk to and connect with people, grow as a professional, and more. MGP continues to give back to me as a student which inspires me to give back to my community as well!

During my experience at Coppin State University, I have been on the honor roll and Dean’s list, and I will be getting inducted into the National Honor Society of Leadership and Success next month. I was also invited to attend the Universities Gala for Coppin State last year. I’m a private donor scholarship recipient, a Thurgood Marshall scholar, and a student leader on Coppin State University’s campus.
