Poppe Added To Pitt State Athletics Staff

Updated:

Press Release Pittsburg State University:

Former Pittsburg State University Women's  Basketball player Marissa Poppe returns to Pittsburg as the PSU Athletics Director of  Strategic Partnerships and Community Relations.
 
Poppe returns to her alma mater after most recently serving as the youth sports director for the Butler County YMCAs in the Wichita area. She was responsible for coordinating the youth sports programs for over 600 children at the two Butler County YMCA locations. She was responsible for recruiting and training staff and volunteers and developing a budget for all aspects of youth sports activities.
 
Prior to her YMCA job, she spent a season as a marketing intern with the Kansas City Chiefs, where her primary responsibility included organizing appearances and fundraising for the KC Chiefs Cheerleaders and Ambassadors. As part of these responsibilities she also managed the Junior Chiefs Cheerleaders youth programs, Chiefs Cheerleaders calendar sales and a cheerleader alumni weekend.
 
As a member of the staff of the minor league Wichita Wingnuts in the summer of 2012, Poppe created artwork for the Wingnuts' Daktronics video board and assisted with game day operations. She also worked with group sales and season ticket sales.
 
Poppe received her master's degree in sport management from Wichita State University. While working on her master's degree, Poppe worked in the WSU ticket office and served as the communications director for the Sport Management Student Association. She helped to organize successful alumni events, sold group tickets and was involved in promoting several events for both athletics and the sport management program.
 
She earned her bachelor's degree in technology education from Pittsburg State. She played basketball for the Gorillas from 2006-2011 and served as a team captain during the 2010-11 season.
 
"We are thrilled to have Marissa join our staff," Athletics Director Jim Johnson said. "She will have an immediate impact due to her experience the past two years. Her relationship and knowledge related to the Pittsburg area coupled with her educational background and work experience make her the perfect fit for this position."
