Hi, my name is Taylor Shingler and I am an upcoming senior at Maryville University in St. Louis, where I am pursuing a degree in Sports Business Management, while competing on the softball team for the university. I was honored to be selected as the first intern for the American Gold Sports Alliance (AGSA) as the Marketing and Outreach Coordinator. Throughout my time as an intern, I feel that I have greatly increased my professional skill set in the sports industry. I was responsible for developing the AGSA Athlete of the Month program for the organization, managing the necessary development, operations and relationship building steps to achieve success. In addition, the development of the Youth Advisory Committee and the organization’s TikTok became some of my other responsibilities throughout my experience with AGSA. It was a great experience working with a variety of professionals in the industry. I was able to increase my professional network and gain one of a kind experiences. My time as an intern with AGSA was truly memorable and beneficial in aiding my personal growth within the industry. I look forward to seeing what the organization has planned for the future and for the interns to come. I cannot wait to continue my experience with AGSA over the summer season!
As we close out Women’s History Month, we wanted to take a moment to thank all of the powerful and influential women in the world. In case you missed any of our Women’s History Month Spotlights, we compiled them all here!
