JarrodSchenewarkDr. Jarrod Schenewark of the School of Kinesiology is among the finalists for the 2013 William C. Friday Outstanding Article Award.

The award recognizes the outstanding article in the Journal of Issues in Intercollegiate Athletics for the 2012 calendar year, as selected by the publication’s editorial review board.

Schenewark’s article, “A Dual Model of Work-Family Conflict and Enrichment in Collegiate Coaches,” was coauthored by Dr. Marlene A. Dixon from the University of Texas and focuses on how work-family conflict and enrichment can influence life outcomes for mothers and fathers who are coaches. Schenewark spent six years working as a collegiate football coach at all levels of the NCAA and knows firsthand the impact this job can have on one’s family life.

“I feel a great sense of pride and honor to be recognized amongst the other scholars in my field,” Schenewark said. “My gratitude is immense and I can’t thank them enough.”

Dr. Gary McIlvain, associate dean of the College of Health Professions and chair of the School of Kinesiology, said he was not surprised by this announcement. He considers Schenewark among the most active in the School of Kinesiology as well as in his field.

“The honor of being named as a finalist by his peers in the field of sports management speaks volumes of the dedication to his discipline,” McIlvain said. “This just demonstrates the caliber of faculty in the College of Health Professions and School of Kinesiology. We are excited and congratulate him on this accomplishment.”

The other finalists for this award will represent East Carolina University in North Carolina and Ball State University in Indiana at the CSRI conference. The winning authors will receive a $150 award in addition to an award plaque commemorating their achievement.

The winner will be announced at the College Sport Research Institute (CSRI) conference, which is taking place  at the University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill April 17-19.
