If you can help someone, you help. That, in short, is the moral compass Shawn Preston has been taught to follow.
Preston is a strength coach for Bison Sports. He’s not an alumnus – he graduated from University of Maine – Presque Isle, and Old Dominion University – and he’s only been working here for two years, yet he already supports a scholarship for Bison Athletes, because he can.
“The money goes directly back to a scholarship for varsity athletes. My job is to take care of varsity athletes, so if there is something I can do to assist in that, you know, why not,” he says. “It’s not like it’s a massive contribution or anything. It’s just a portion of salary that comes off of each paycheck and I think it’s something everyone can do.”
