Rachel Lackner, broadcast journalism
Rachael Lackner is going from college ball — to the majors. After graduation, Lackner will create multimedia content for the San Diego Chargers — the same thing she did for three years for Gamecock Athletics. The broadcast journalism major credits receiving the job offer, in part, because of her internships, including one with ESPN.
Edwards Ruchugo, sport and entertainment management
As the student manager of Gamecock men's soccer, Edward Ruchugo saw firsthand the impact coaches have in students' lives. The experience inspired him to work with young people. After he receives his bachelor's degree in sport and entertainment management, Ruchugo will spend the summer running tournaments across the country for U.S. Club Soccer. In the fall, he will return to Carolina to work on his master's and hopes to become a soccer coach.
Danny Garrison, management science and marketing
Starting next month, Danny Garrison will have a hand in making sure your orders from Amazon are correct. Garrison, who graduates from the Darla Moore School of Business with a bachelor's degree in management science and marketing, has accepted a job with one of the online company's fulfillment centers. Garrison says he'll miss his time at Carolina especially attending Gamecock sporting events. As the sports editor for the Daily Gamecock, he had a front-row seat to many games.
Morgan Lundy, English
The day after graduating with a bachelor's degree in English, Morgan Lundy will fly to Beijing to work for three months as a kindergarten teacher. She will be back on campus in the fall to work on a master's in library science and eventually work as a librarian. Lundy is a McNair Scholar and recipient of the Steven N. Swanger Leadership Award, the university's second-highest undergraduate honor. While at Carolina, she volunteered as a site leader and student coordinator on a number of alternative break trips.
Jake Sims, international business and global supply chain management
An internship halfway across the world helped Jake Sims get a job after graduation. Sims will receive bachelor degrees in international business and global supply chain management. He spent parts of his junior and senior years studying and working in Chile. He will work in a management training position at cable products manufacturing company, Belden. While at Carolina, Sims was active in his fraternity, Beta Theta Pi, and student government.
