North Texas Alumni Rick Herold, a Mean Green Club volunteer representative from Grand Prairie, recently hosted a special event at the North Texas Athletic Center. Rick invited his co-workers with North Texas ties to visit Denton, tour the athletic facilities, and have lunch with North Texas administrators.
Rick's event was a huge success! Over 20 people eager to hear about the direction of North Texas Athletics came to campus to see the new football stadium. Rick encouraged each of them to join the Mean Green Club and purchase season tickets. New North Texas Head Football Coach Dan McCarney stopped by and spoke to the group and urged them to purchase season tickets and join the Mean Green Club. Coach McCarney told the group their support was needed to help build the program.
The Mean Green Club Representative Program is a volunteer-based initiative, intended to help strengthen Mean Green fans' recognition and connection with the athletic department. In its inaugural year, the Mean Green Club has 55 volunteer representatives throughout the state of Texas. These volunteers serve as Mean Green Club ambassadors, and help facilitate a connection between North Texas Athletics and its supporters across the state.
Mean Green Club Representatives assist the athletic department in a number of ways: relaying important information to Mean Green supporters; increasing membership in the Mean Green Club; identifying potential new season ticket holders, and hosting special events to engage Mean Green fans.
Thanks to Rick Herold, the Mean Green Club was able to bring alumni back to campus, strengthen their affinity for their university, and get them excited about the future of North Texas Athletics!
