In your role as Assistant Director of Recreation and Wellness (Intramural and Club Sports) at Clayton State, you are responsible for leading the Intramural program staff consisting of approximately 10 student officials/scorekeepers. You have been on campus for a month and just gone through your on-boarding for the department at Clayton State. Your leagues start and you begin to realize that your student workers have a lack of commitment to the program and there is not much comradeship within the group. The officials express concerns about
· “I only get paid minimum wage, why should I even try to do anything extra?”
· “All I have to do is clock-in, do my job, and clock-out. That’s it.”
Discuss the steps you would take to create a culture of ‘buy-in’ among Clayton State Intramural Sports Officials and how those actions speak to your values, your advising style, and your understanding of Intramural sports in the context of campus recreation.

Help Lee Moore Hitchhike the Silk Road
When last we checked in with Lee Moore, the son of one Clayton State University’s more noted alumni; former Clayton State faculty member and acting dean Dr. Benita H. Moore, he was traveling through Mongolia.
While on a summer 2007 trip to the Nadaam Festival in Ulan Bataar, the capital of Mongolia, Moore and his brother Walter Moore discovered that Clayton State caps were for sale in an outpost on the other side of the world from Morrow, Ga.
“It was at a hat stall that we stumbled on the Clayton State hat,” said Moore at that time. “I don't recall seeing hats from any other universities… UGA, Georgia Tech, Harvard. Walter was the one who discovered it among some major league baseball caps. It was 2000 Togrog or about US$2. We didn't buy it, thinking that it would be better to leave it there as an ad.”
Since he’s obviously still attracted to the steppes of central Asia, Lee Moore (currently doing consulting related to China) is attempting to return there by winning an Adventure Grant from Outside Magazine, a grant to hitchhike the fabled Silk Road in the footsteps of Marco Polo, et al.
“Lee and his friend, Galen Burke, have applied for a grant. If they win, Lee would get $10,000 as a part of a project to hitchhike the Silk Road in China, which they would do sometime next year,” explains Benita Moore. “Both hope to use the project to gain exposure and make business contacts, and they are planning to submit the film they produce to the Banff Film Festival.”
How can Moore win the Adventure Grant? It’s an online contest run by Outside.
“Right now, he is one of the top five finalists, but he needs your vote to help win,” asks his mother of all of her many friends at Clayton State. “You can vote once each day from a computer, but only once each day. Voting goes until 11:59 p.m. on June 28.”
To send Lee Moore to the Silk Road, go to http://www.outsideonline.com/outdoor-adventure/adventure-grant-2013?fn=4. This link contains a VOTE button and also a video and summary of the project.
