Sports Info's Luis Urrea '16 Giving Back

Current Job Title:  In August of 2019, I started working as the Volunteer Coordinator for Centro Hispano de East Tennessee through AmeriCorps VISTA. Because it is a non-profit organization, Centro uses a good amount of volunteers on a weekly basis to meet all of our needs. My job is to recruit volunteers, train them, and place them in a role in which they will be successful. Right after graduation, I joined Teach For America and became a 7th grade science teacher in the Rio Grande Valley of south Texas. I worked there for a little over two years. After that, I took a half-year off from work to start on my parents biography and travel around the country. Next year, I am looking forward to going to law school, most likely at the University of Tennessee College of Law. 

Williams graduation year:  2016

Degree you earned at Williams:  Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and Geosciences 

How you got involved in Eph Sports Information:  My good friend, Nathan Thompson, kept saying how much he loved his job taking stats for Sports Info. After a while, I was convinced that I also had to work for SI!

What were your duties in Ephs Sports Information:  I took stats for many different sports including hockey, field hockey, basketball, and lacrosse. 

Favorite Eph Sports Information memory:  On our way back from an away game in Amherst, Kris Dufour, myself, and Brandon Acosta were hungry and settled on Olive Garden. Our long trip there and back, and our post work meal, was the most pleasant work-related conversations and meals I've had.

Frank Deford Award :  Luis won The Frank Deford Award in 2016.

Fun fact: Luis participated in The Williams-Mystic Program for one semester and there he met Kaitlyn Klema from Smith College and they are planning to get married in the Thompson Memorial Chapel in Williamstown on August 8.
