Sport Management Students Give Back

This past semester, Rice’s Sport Public Relations class (SMGT 466) developed five unique ways to give back to the Houston community under the guidance of Department Chair and professor Dr. Clark Haptonstall. These projects provided awareness, monetary and volunteer support, and an abundance of smiles to three local charities: The Houston Food Bank, Houston’s Walk MS event, and The Nehemiah Center. Altogether the class helped feed 12,140 people and put in over 200 volunteer hours.
