Cameron Moore is a two-time Lock Haven University graduate. He’s also an NBA champion.
Moore landed a job with the Milwaukee Bucks of the National Basketball Association in January 2021. In July, the Bucks defeated the Phoenix Suns in six games to win the NBA Finals. As a member of the Bucks’ sales office, Moore received an NBA championship ring for his role in the team’s success.
Moore earned his bachelor’s degree from LHU in sport management in 2020. In 2021, he followed that degree up with a master’s degree in sport science/sport management. His primary duties in his current role in the Bucks’ sales office are to boost ticket sales and promotional activities, among others.
According to Moore, beginning a career in professional sports was especially difficult over the past year because of the challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic.
He said that no one really knew when fans and employees could return to the Bucks’ home court at Fiserv Forum, but his department, nicknamed “Good Crazy” because of all of its moving parts, was eager to accommodate fans as soon as the arena’s doors re-opened.
“People wanted to talk to you, everyone wanted to get into the building and see their Bucks play in person again,” Moore said.
Training provided by the Bucks helped him be successful selling single-game and season tickets.
“This is just one of many stories of a student from Lock Haven University making it to the real world and being successful,” Dr. Peter Campbell, chair of LHU’s Sports Studies Department said. “The classes you take at Lock Haven University are designed to teach you all of the many different aspects of the sports industry.
This allows you to look at every option available when you apply for your internship at the end of your college career,” Campbell added.
Moore said that his professors in the sport studies program at LHU always encouraged him to think outside the box, be professional, and do something to stand out. He attributes much of the success he’s experienced during his brief career to lessons learned during his time at The Haven.
“The projects we participated in at LHU were designed to help you reach your full potential. Those projects helped me gain much of the knowledge needed to be successful in this industry,”
“My professors at LHU really helped me realize that you have to be comfortable being uncomfortable,” he added. “I am so happy I chose LHU because I feel like I wouldn’t have reached my potential anywhere else.”
Another aspect of his education received at The Haven lauded by Moore, is the effort professors put in to having successful alumni visit class and share their experiences and wisdom with students.
He said the wealth of knowledge he gained from hearing success and failure stories of alumni who would come back and speak with students in his classes was invaluable.
“Listening to the people that are already in the sports world helped me learn what I needed to do to be successful in this industry,” he said.
