My name is Conrad Worley and I have recently obtained a Master’s of Science degree in Sport Management and Policy from the University of Georgia. My goal is to one day work in an environment that allows me to build relationships and enhance my professional development. Working for the Mesa Rim Climbing Center would not only provide me with experiences that would be instrumental in the pursuit of my career goals, but also give me the chance to have a lasting impact in a professional environment.

Recently, I had the privilege of working with the Town of Belleair Parks and Recreation Department in Belleair, Florida. The Recreation Leader I position, as well as the Special Events Internship, allowed me to gain a glimpse into the world of event management. As an employee with the Town of Belleair, it was my responsibility to market and manage major events such as the Sunset 5k and Fun Run, Sunday’s in Belleair Concert Series, Spring Fest, and The Recreation Center Golf Tournament. It was my duty to construct multiple bid packages, participate in sponsorship and fundraising activities, and manage the daily operations of the Dimmitt Community Center. The invaluable experience I have gained in the world sport business has directly contributed to my development as a professional.

In addition to my interests in the field of Sport Management, I am also a professional highland bagpiper. Over the years I have had the opportunity to play with a number of bagpipe bands including the Atlanta Pipe Band and the North Carolina State University Pipe Band. These experiences have allowed me to work with a variety of people and to develop my interpersonal skills. I have been an active soloist since I was a young boy and have been fortunate enough to play for the United States Gold Medal and several other championships in North America. All of my involvement with the piping community has taught me the value of team work and collaboration in accomplishing tasks.
