Mark Powell Assistant Director for Intramural Sports Campus Recreation Program UNL
Mark has worked in campus recreation for 12 years and has supervised over 2,000 student employees. He has also interacted with countless participants in the program and has had a profound effect on many of them – one father said recently his son would not have graduated had it not been for intramural sports and Mark's impact on him.
Such results happen because of Mark's dedication to the students. He and his family have hosted holiday parties for students, for example, and he regularly attends graduation ceremonies, weddings, and funerals with families of students. He has helped students find jobs, helped keep them in school and has taught many of them how to coach and officiate in sports. Many former students from literally all over the world stay in touch with Mark on a regular basis.
