NIRSA recognizes RWC for Creativity and Student Leadership
University of Central Florida Recreation and Wellness Center Receives Two National Awards from NIRSA Orlando, FL (February 13, 2014) – The National Intramural-Recreational Sports Association (NIRSA) has honored the University of Central Florida’s (UCF) Recreation and Wellness Center (RWC) for outstanding achievement in marketing and academic and leadership achievement by a student staff member. Jamie Mineart, a UCF intramural sports lead supervisor and programming assistant won the William Wasson Student Leadership and Academic Award. The RWC’s marketing department was also honored with NIRSA Creative Excellence Award for its annual informational publication the RWC Hand Guide. Named after NIRSA’s founder, Dr. William N. Wasson, the Wasson Student Leadership and Academic award recognizes top students in college recreation who participate in or are employed by recreation centers across the country. Mineart, a senior and marketing major from Lakewood Ranch, FL, was chosen from hundreds of candidates for carrying a 3.8 GPA while positively contributing to UCF IM Sports program and RWC Philanthropy and Student Advisory Board Committees. She’s grateful for the opportunity to give back to students here at UCF, "Winning the Wasson Award means a lot to me for multiple reasons. The nomination itself was very humbling for me and made me very thankful for the support of the staff here at the RWC. Most importantly, winning the award has been an opportunity for me to represent UCF and give back to those who have given me so many opportunities over my four years here. I am forever grateful for the development, personally and professionally, that I have been given while working at the RWC." Mineart is also two-time All-Tournament official at the NIRSA Regional Flag Football Tournament. UCF Assistant Director of IM Sports, Shane Land calls her one of their top employees, “Jamie has demonstrated outstanding leadership and commitment to not only her own professional development, but the development of her peers; exercising the ultimate ‘can-do’ attitude. “ The NIRSA Creative Excellence Awards recognize innovative approaches to marketing, media, and design by NIRSA member institutions. The RWC won a second place award for the RWC Hand Guides. The guides are a reference publication for students, parents and visitors to campus. The 25 page guide gives an overview of the program, events, facilities, memberships and employment opportunities at the RWC. RWC Marketing and Communications Manager, Scott Mauro, says it was truly a team effort, “The 2013-2014 RWC Hand Guides are a collaborative effort between our talented team of designers and our program area leadership. We are so honored to be recognized by NIRSA for the hard work in making a guide that gives UCF students and parents an inside look at the RWC.” Mineart and the RWC Marketing team will receive the awards April 24-26 in Nashville, TN at NIRSA’s annual National Conference and Expo. UCF Intramural Sports is part of University of Central Florida’s Recreation and Wellness Center, funded and supported by the Student Government Association (SGA).
