Kyle White is a junior math education major from Washington, NC and he tells us about working for Campus Rec and his love for intermural sports.
“It’s where I found my group of best friends, where I stay active and out of my dorm room, and where so many memories here at Campbell have been made.”
Q: What made you come to Campbell?
My youth minster was a graduate of Campbell and he brought me here on a tour when I was a junior in high school. I just really felt God lead me here. It’s just like a big family, you can tell. When I got here on visitation day, I met a professor in the math department, it was Dr. Williams. I saw her later on that day and she recognized me and said “hey” and I thought “well if she can remember me in one day, then she will definitely remember me at school.
Q: What would you like to do with math?
I want to be a high school teacher and a coach. My dad was my high school science teacher and basketball coach for all four years. I kind of want to take his job, but I probably won’t go back home it will be somewhere else. Working with kids, working with students and players.
Q: How long have you been working for Campus rec?
Literally since the day I got here as a freshman.
Q: What do you do for campus rec?
I am a supervisor and head of officials. I officiate just about every sport that we have here and give trainings for other officials. We train them to learn to officiate. I play intermural sports as well. That’s one of the good things that our boss lets us do. We play, but our job is top priority.
Q: Which games do you officiate?
I officiate Flag Football, Indoor and Outdoor Soccer, Basketball, Volleyball, and Softball for Intermural Sports.
Q: Have you ever officiated anything before working for Campus Rec?
Yes! I officiated Rec Soccer back in Washington. That’s how I got into officiating in the first place. I officiated kids from ages 8-15.
Q: Is there anything you would like everyone to know about Campus Rec?
A: I hope more and more people see how awesome Campus Rec and intermural sports are! It’s where I found my group of best friends, where I stay active and out of my dorm room, and where so many memories here at Campbell have been made.
