Jarrod Trevathan
Unit Coordinator
United Supermarkets Arena

Jarrod Trevathan, a Unit Coordinator for the United Supermarkets Arena has demonstrated exemplary work efforts since his employment with the University. In his role as Unit Coordinator, Jarrod is responsible for overseeing all events in the arena, including athletic events, graduations, and concerts. Last year, another position that oversaw transitioning the arena to accommodate the different events became vacant. Jarrod took the responsibilities of this position upon himself and began overseeing the job functions of both positions. Many times during the year, there would be a basketball or volleyball game followed by a concert or vice versa. Jarrod would often stay at the arena until the early morning hours to ensure everything was done correctly. During the spring 2017 semester, the United Supermarkets Arena hosted more special events than any other time in its history, including seven shows for Cirque du Soleil, three shows for Sesame Street Live, and five Garth Brooks' concerts that brought over 65,000 people into the arena over a four day period. It's obvious that the success of the United Supermarkets Arena was due in part to Jarrod's high level of initiative, integrity, and dedication to his job.
