RALEIGH, N.C., Jan. 8, 2014 – William Peace University, a private four-year university located in downtown Raleigh, has announced the hiring of Intramural Program & Area Coordinator, Jarrod Miron. In his positions, Miron will plan and draft all intramural events and programs, develop and oversee the implementation of community-based social and educational programs for area residents, help implement all programs and operations set forth by the Residence Life department, and assist in student activities programs as needed.
Before coming to William Peace University, Miron earned a B.S. in Sport Management from Campbell University in Buies Creek, N.C., where he also served as Vice President for Club Sports, worked for the Intramural and Athletics Departments, and coached club sports. He later earned his M.S. in Health and Human Performance from Austin Peay State University in Clarksville, T.N., where he was a Graduate Assistant for the Intramural Department.
A native of Roanoke, Virginia, Miron resides in Raleigh.
“I love being around sports and being able to have a positive impact on students,” Miron said. “I’m grateful for the opportunity to work at such a fantastic university like William Peace, which is invested in making its students’ experience a great and memorable one. I’m looking forward to becoming a part of this great family atmosphere and all of the fun that happens here on campus.”
“William Peace University has an outstanding foundation for its Intramural Program,” said Frank Rizzo, Vice President for Student Services. “We’re proud to bring Jarrod aboard to help continue and build upon that success. He’s a proven innovator when it comes to creating participation for campus events, which is something we’re really happy and excited about.”
“In regards to his role as Area Coordinator, Jarrod will be an instant contributor and leader,” Rizzo said. “He really understands the needs of our students, and he has some great ideas to better their experience here at WPU. We’re excited.”
