Since 2014, Endicott College Athletics has been honored to participate in Team IMPACT, a national nonprofit that connects children facing serious and chronic illnesses with college athletic teams, forming life-long bonds and life-changing outcomes. There are currently five athletic teams at Endicott that are involved with the program, and two outstanding athletes have been named Team IMPACT Fellows for the 2020–21 academic year by the national organization.
Meg Power (Shrewsbury, Mass./softball) and Jack Sutherland (Sudbury, Mass./men’s lacrosse) were inspired to apply for the Fellow positions by powerful experiences with their Team IMPACT matches, Kenny Wallace (lacrosse) and Kendall Weinburg (softball).
In their role as Fellows, Power and Sutherland will be challenged to think creatively and collaboratively, work with passion, and show strong attention to detail as they support the development of Team IMPACT on campus, engage the Endicott community, and educate the athletic department to increase program participation.
“I am eager to get started working with Meg and Team IMPACT, and to continue to foster and develop these special relationships for kids who are battling serious or chronic illnesses.”—Jack Sutherland ‘21
Power is optimistic about the road ahead. She says, “I cannot wait to see what we will be able to accomplish.” Meanwhile, Sutherland is excited to build upon his past experiences. He shares, “I am eager to get started working with Meg and Team IMPACT, and to continue to foster and develop these special relationships for kids who are battling serious or chronic illnesses.”
Together, these two standout Gulls are ready to make a positive impact on the Endicott community and beyond.
