Adrien Harraway

Vice President and Director, John McLendon Minority Scholarship Foundation, NACDA

A 2003 McLendon Foundation scholarship recipient, Harraway now not only runs the foundation, he’s been a driving force for its growth with a new McLendon Future Leaders program. Through funding from coaches and athletic departments, the program hires young minorities to work paid internships at colleges and sports organizations across the country. In 2020-21, its first year, over 700 people applied for 30 positions, with 85% securing professional positions in athletics after their internship. In Year 2, the program grew to 42 positions. The new McLendon Leadership Weekend brings McLendon Future Leaders and McLendon Scholars together for educational sessions and community building.
