MEC Students Selected to 2017 Division III Student Immersion Program

Tuesday, January 17, 2017

Two Medgar Evers’ student-athletes -- Senior Sciancia Metelus and junior Charlyn Jordon, both of whom are graduating this spring -- have been selected to attend the Division III Student Immersion Program in Nashville (TN) this spring.

The women are both members of the soccer team, as well as the track and field teams, and each has a GPA of at least 3.43.

The Division III Student Immersion Program was created in 2015 to bring 40 ethnic minority students to the NCAA Convention and expose them to Division III, its members, and its governance process. The goal is to create a pipeline of talented ethnic minority candidates, with an interest in Division III coaching and/or administration, in an effort to ultimately diversify the division.

Ms. Jordan is involved in many extra-curricular activities such as a club she helped create called “Voices for Self-Reliance through Business Development.”

After completing her Bachelor’s Degree, she will pursue a Masters in Finance to become a Financial Analyst, focusing on financial literacy within minority communities.

 Ms. Metelus is interested in working as an athletic professional and wishes to become a graduate assistant in the field of athletics. She has qualified for the ECACs in track twice and is also a member of SAAC on campus at Medgar Evers.

Ms. Metelus also traveled to Cuba for CUNY’s historic Goodwill tour of Cuba last May. While there, she and the other student-athletes took part in a local youth clinic at the athletic training centers and visited local hospitals.
