The Clarke University Future Young Professionals organization will welcome legendary sportscaster and entrepreneur Gary Dolphin to campus on Tuesday, March 29 at 6 p.m. in Jansen Music Hall. The event is free for Clarke University students and employees, and the public is welcome to purchase $5 tickets at the door.
Known as the “Voice of the Hawkeyes,” Dolphin will share his experiences as a sportscaster for the University of Iowa men’s basketball and football teams, as well as his experiences in business. Prior to working with the University of Iowa, Dolphin was a broadcaster for Northwestern University and worked in TV production for the Chicago Bears.
Dolphin is also a former vice president of U.S. Bank and co-owner of Gary Dolphin’s Iron Bar in the Dubuque, Iowa Millwork District. Throughout the evening, he will share anecdotes in his well-known and entertaining style, along with sports stories, reflections and some of the lessons he’s learned along the way. Following his hour-long remarks, he will take questions from the audience.
“As a football player and the President of Future Young Professionals, I am excited to hear Gary Dolphin speak when he comes to campus,” said Reid Raisbeck, President of the Clarke Future Young Professionals. “He is a larger-than-life, charismatic public figure, and has been a huge part of sports, while having a great impact on the local community. I look forward to hearing his story!”
The Clarke University Future Young Professionals Club seeks to connect students from a variety of majors with professional development to enhance their confidence, network, and prepare them to enter the workforce. Proceeds from the evening’s event will raise funds for additional Future Young Professionals programming.
