Professor and Physical Education Students Present at Sport Management Conference

HIGH POINT, N.C., Dec. 21, 2011 – Dr. Martie Bell, associate professor of physical education at High Point University, recently gave a presentation alongside nine physical education majors for the Sport Management Association at the annual North Carolina Alliance for Athletics, Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance (NCAAHPERD) Conference.

The presentation, titled “Let’s Get Middle Schoolers Active!”, Bell, along with the students, offered information on the “The Ultimate Flag Game Curriculum.” The curriculum presented in the program was developed by Kenny Angel, a physical educator at Ferndale Middle School in High Point.

Students who participated in the program included Drew Hackett, Haley Ruehle, Meredith Greene, Katie Florane, Michael Byrnes, Michael Dorman, Lauren Friedrich, Matt Bagwell and Kirsty Pfahl.

“Making presentations are important for my students and for myself,” Bell says. “Presenting the curriculum that was developed by Kenny Angel provides an avenue to share a great program for middle school students, and providing HPU students the opportunity to present this information to teachers from across the state gives them a deeper understanding of the information, as they have to really know the curriculum to teach it to other teachers.”
