Sports management graduate student and University Recreation employee Jordan Hunter was awarded the 2019 William N. Wasson Student Leadership and Academic Award by the National Intramural-Recreational Sports Association (NIRSA) this spring.

Named after NIRSA’s founder, Dr. William N. Wasson, the award recognizes exceptional undergraduate and graduate students who set the standard on campuses across the country and participate in or are employed by the Department of Recreational Sports.

Hunter graduated from California State University, Monterey Bay with a bachelors in kinesiology and exercise sciences. He arrived at WSU Pullman in 2017 to begin his journey toward earning a Master’s in Education with an emphasis on sport management.

During his time at WSU, Hunter has served on the advisory board for the Sport Club Federation Council, the UREC Student Development Committee and the UREC Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Committee. He has volunteered at the NIRSA Championship Series events in Region VI over the past two years and has also spent time volunteering at the Hope Center in Moscow, Idaho.

Hunter is one of five students from NIRSA Region VI to receive this honor.
