Bearkat athletics received a generous $5,000 grant from Enterprise Rent-A-Car last week. Carter Norwood, talent acquisition manager for Enterprise, presented the check to the Sam Houston State athletic academic services.

The gift is a continuation of a long-standing relationship between Sam Houston athletics and Enterprise Rent-A-Car. The grant will serve as a valuable asset to Bearkat athletics.

The grant money was not the only gift received from Enterprise. Carter Norwood also held a clinic for Sam Houston student-athletes about "being on their game" for job interviews. Norwood spoke to 66 Bearkat student-athletes, including the entire men's and women's basketball teams.

Norwood, who has volunteered his time to SHSU athletics before, spoke about appearing professional from the moment you pull into the parking lot. Norwood coached the athletes on how to dress and how to act. He discussed specifics such as tying a tie, giving a proper hand shake, and sitting up straight in a chair.

"Mr. Norwood's presentation was just awesome," Sam Houston State senior soccer player and SAAC officer Hillary Ackerman said. "His presentation was full of great information and also really entertaining."

In Norwood's previous visits he has helped student-athletes with resume writing. Norwood has also provided Bearkat student-athletes with internship and scholarship opportunities.
