Sports & Entertainment Marketing Field Trip–March 2015

On Friday, March 27, forty five students along with Mrs. Emery-Seibert, Mrs. Bleistein and Mrs. Finnerty made the annual Sports & Entertainment Marketing field trip to Washington DC. The first stop was a visit to National Harbor. The students toured the area and rode the Capital Wheel which consists of fully enclosed gondolas soaring 180 feet over the Potomac. The Capital Wheel offers the best skyline views of Washington DC.

The second stop was the Verizon Center. Mr. Steve Zarick, Director of Group Sales, provided a speaker panel with four Monumental Entertainment employees who shared professional experiences, advice and insight to pursuing careers in sports and entertainment marketing. Along with Mr. Zarick, Brandon Putnam (Marketing Specialist), Jennifer Greenberg (Client Services Director), and Greg Roberts (Corporate Partnerships Executive) and Jessica DiChiacchio (Group Sales Manager) explained to the students their daily responsibilities and what they had to do to get a job with such a prominent corporation in the sports and entertainment industry. Monumental Sports and Entertainment is one of two organizations in the United States who own 3 NBA teams; they own the Washington Wizards, Washington Mystics and Washington Capitals.

Social Responsibility is a topic Sports and Entertainment Marketing students learn about in class and the Washington Wizards showed Milton High School a real world example by making Nitin Ramachandran, a ten year old brain cancer patient, part of the team for the entire day. Nitin ran through the Milton High School High Five tunnel with the NBA team and was announced in the starting lineup.

The fun-filled, educational day ended with a double overtime win for the Washington Wizards over the Charlotte Hornets.
