Former Wingate University Women's Soccer All-American, Jade Montgomery, has been hired by Wingate International Soccer Academy as their new Sports Marketing Coordinator. Montgomery, who just spent the last few months in Finland playing professionally with Kokkola Futis 10, will be in charge of planning and implementing marketing strategies to aid WISA and provide administrative support to the directors. In addition to her administrative rolls and responsibilities, Montgomery will also be assisting year-round with the Wingate Women's Soccer team in efforts to fundraise, recruit, and coach.
Ms. Montgomery comes in with a wealth of experience on the playing side, including having attended the WISA Women's Showcase for several years, prior to signing for Wingate University.

But Jade does not merely come in with playing experience and first-hand knowledge of collegiate soccer, she also comes in with an educational background that will help her succeed as well. Jade graduated in 2014 with a bachelor's degree in Community and Commercial Recreation, a major that is very closely related to Sport Management, and ties in with the business aspects of sports. Related to this, Jade will begin working towards her Masters of Arts in Sport Management beginning this Spring.
