Michael Stokes was the first member of his family to earn a bachelor's degree from a major university. Growing up in a small town, Stokes worked hard to succeed. Through perseverance, the Norvelt, Pa. native says has realized his early career dreams.
Stokes, B.S. sport management (2020),
secured a position following graduation as an assistant equipment manager for
the WVU baseball and basketball teams. “Landing my dream job right out of
college at the age of 26 is truly a blessing. I still can’t believe I get to wake
every day and do what I do,” Stokes said.
