Published on May 19, 2016

A student intern in the EKUSports Communications office has earned a prestigious scholarship from the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA). Morgan Romans was recently awarded a $3,000 CoSIDA Fred Nuesch & Dave Wohlhueter Undergraduate Scholarship.

Romans is a junior from Versailles, Indiana, and is majoring in sports management. She is concluding her third year as a student intern in the EKUSports Communications office. Romans has assisted the department in publicizing all 17 sports and more than 300 student-athletes.  She has particularly excelled in the areas of social media, game operations and in-game statistics.

CoSIDA was founded in 1957 and is a 3,000-plus member national organization comprised of sports public relations, media relations and communications professionals throughout all levels of collegiate athletics in the United States and Canada.

“All of us in the athletics department are very proud of Morgan,” said Kevin Britton, EKU assistant athletics director for communications. “Morgan has done a great job and has been an asset to our entire department.  She has a bright future in athletics communications. She is more than ready right now for a full time position in this field.”

CoSIDA awards two undergraduate scholarships each year. The Fred Nuesch & Dave Wohlhueter Undergraduate Scholarships are named for former long-time CoSIDA secretary/digest editor Fred Nuesch and former CoSIDA treasurer Dave Wohlhueter. Nuesch, who spent the majority of his career at Texas A&M-Kingsville, and Wohlhueter, who is retired from Cornell, are both CoSIDA Hall of Famers.
