Gipper and The School of Education at William Woods University Announce New Partnership




New York, NY (January 21, 2021)— Gipper Media, Inc. (Gipper), the leading social media graphics solution in the K-12 market, is excited to announce a new partnership with The School of Education at William Woods University. Through this partnership, students in the Online Master of Education in Athletic/Activities Administration Program at William Woods University are able to utilize Gipper’s platform to learn how to easily create branded, social media content to help better promote programs and student-athletes. Students will also have access to Gipper’s professional development resources to help further grow their digital marketing skills.


“Our partnership with Gipper is an important part of modernizing our Athletic/Activities Administration Program,” said Dixie Wescott, William Woods University, M.Ed. in Athletic/Activities Administration’s Online Program Manager. “Social media is becoming a critical communication and promotion tool for the modern high school athletic director. As the responsibilities of ADs evolve, it is necessary that our program does too. By using Gipper’s platform in our online classes, we are able to give our students experience with best-in-class technology and prepare them for taking the next step in their careers - and particularly, their use of social media and other digital channels.”


Gipper is thrilled to partner with The School of Education at William Woods University and their Master of Education in Athletic/Activities Administration Program - which prepares students to take their place in the management of an athletics/activities program in a middle school, high school or university.


“We are proud to partner with The School of Education at Williams Woods University and to support their Master of Education in Athletic/Activities Administration Program,” said Matthew Glick, Gipper’s Chief Executive Officer. “In today’s age, every high school AD must know how to market their program and student-athletes via social media and other digital channels. However, high school athletic departments have so many teams and student-athletes to cover, but lack the resources to do so effectively. Gipper allows athletic administrators to save time, while creating professional sports graphics to better grow their brand, engage stakeholders, and drive revenue. Gipper will be a fantastic solution for the William Woods University M.Ed. in Athletic/Activities Administration Program and their students."
