Meet the Class - Wayne

One of the unique attributes of the DeVos Sport Business Management Program is the network of students who make up our program. Our class will take every course together during our tenure here at UCF and we will work on countless group projects and collaborative efforts. As a result of our shared interests in the business of sport, a natural team camaraderie is formed. However, our team is composed of people from diverse backgrounds, experiences and ambitions. We offer profiles of class members to give you an idea as to the type of people who make up our program, individuals who collectively will be leaders in sport and society and will be teammates for life.

If you could have any superpower what would you choose and why?
I would choose “Invincibility”. This superpower supersedes any other power formed against me, therefore making me more powerful than any opponent.

If you had the opportunity to interview anyone dead or alive, who would you choose and what would you most want to know?
I would choose Martin Luther King Jr. I would love to hear his thoughts on how the US has turned out as a result of all the hard work and sacrifices he and other black civil rights activists devoted years ago. It would be great to hear his visions and thoughts for our country going forward, where some racism and discrimination still exists, and goes beyond just blacks and whites.
