On Wednesday, March 31, SOS visited with 60 students from Starr-Iva Middle School who were being honored for their exemplary character. Student-athletes Taylor Hoynacki and Michelle Nance, both from the rowing team, discussed the T.I.G.E.R.! traits and delivered incentive items, such as stickers and Be a T.I.G.E.R.! Newspapers.

One element of the Community Relations Department is to provide guided tours of athletic venues to interested groups. These tours provide a behind-the-scenes look at our facilities and share some of the stories about the special people, events and unique history of Clemson athletics. Thirteen middle school students and participants of Greenville County’s 4H program took a tour of Clemson’s athletic facilities the morning of Wednesday, March 31. Rowers Brittany Cummings and Meredith Razzolini led the tour.

The middle school students toured Littlejohn Coliseum, McFadden, Jervey Gym and the West End Zone. The group of middle school students was organized by Cyd Brown, who is the local Clemson extension agent. These agents, who deal with primary Youth Development responsibilities work closely with state extension specialists and researchers located on campus and at the various research and education centers located across the state. They provide expertise in topics including animal agriculture and veterinary science, natural resources and the environment, gardening, leadership and citizenship, personal growth and development, and science, engineering and technology.
