UNCG hoops star Lucy Mason now an academic coach

Lucy Mason ’15/16 was featured in the spring 2016 issue for her then-record basketball points total and for her research on African-American figures on campus.

Since then she has pursued sports further, and taken up leadership and guidance positions with a master’s in sports business. While studying for her masters, at Temple University, she also represented the university on their Case Cup team, which competed at the National Sports Forum.

After work at the University of Central Florida in Academic Support Services for Student-Athletes, she is now an academic coach working with the football and softball teams at NC Central University.

She also serves as the Coordinator for Student-Athlete Leadership and Development overseeing life skills programming and community engagement, and is advisor to the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee.
