CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – Senior swimmer Anne Summer Myers has been selected to represent the University of Virginia at the inaugural 2011 NCAA Sports and Entertainment Summit. The event will take place this weekend (March 4-6) at the Millennium Biltmore Hotel in downtown Los Angeles.
The NCAA Sports and Entertainment Summit gives selected student-athletes the opportunity to explore the sports and entertainment industries from the perspective of the professionals who currently work in the fields of entertainment arena, sports media talent and sports media executives.
The Summit is interactive, educational and inspiring and includes panel discussions, educational workshops and a community service project. It is focused on student-athletes who have a desire to pursue careers in entertainment (i.e. film, television, music) and/or sports media upon graduation.
All student-athletes who are selected to attend must be junior or senior status and have a strong interest in sports media or entertainment.
Myers, a native of Richmond, Va., is one of eight Cavalier seniors who made history last month at the ACC Championships as the class of 2011 was the first in Virginia history to win four conference titles. She will compete March 17-19 at the NCAA Championships in the 500 freestyle, 1650 freestyle and 400 individual medley events.
Myers is an English major at UVa and will graduate in May.
