ALLIANCE- Hard work and effort goes a long way in the professional world. Senior business management major, Treyon Davis '24, can attest to this as his determination and dedication towards his collegiate experience has led to his successful career on and off the football field.
From May - August 2023, Davis served as the Tenant Relations Intern at the Hall of Fame Village where he learned from and worked alongside industry professionals.

“I worked on creating operational handbooks for new tenants as well as set up and attend tenant trainings throughout the summer,” said Davis. “Various day-to-day tasks have benefitted me greatly, like working certain events.”
Davis is grateful to have gained experience working at the Hall of Fame Village helping with events like the Kevin Hart Reality Check Tour, Dylan Scott concert, and 2023 Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement.

Davis adds that interning for the Hall of Fame Village taught him how a company operates from the inside out, along with gaining valuable interpersonal communication skills.
“Interning at the Hall of Fame helped me realize that I also like working in hospitality because I love helping and interacting with others,” said Davis, who considers himself a people person.
His favorite part of his internship was meeting and working with team members because they were respectful and always had a smile on their face.
Additionally, Abigail Franks '25, accounting major, also interned at the Hall of Fame Village this summer. As the ticketing intern, she gained valuable skills such as effective communication.
“My day-to-day duties consisted of selling tickets for various events like concerts and comedy shows, worked in the box office answering phone and making phone calls, and giving tours across campus,” said Franks.
Franks, who desires to become an auditor upon graduation stated that working in customer service prior to this internship was daunting to her. However, stepping outside of her comfort zone made her realize that she can also succeed in a career where a customer’s experience is most important.
“My favorite part of the internship was working at events like the USFL games and the Zac Brown Band concert with the other interns; interacting with them and the guests made the environment fun to work at,” said Franks.
