Video Students & Faculty Work With NAC On You Can Play Video

The North Atlantic Conference, the Division III Intercollegiate Athletics conference that includes Husson University, recently worked with NESCom to create a video for their involvement in the You Can Play movement. The video was created by students Heather Andrews, Ryan Carignan, Ellis Ducharme, Justin Foster, Dave Roberts, and Nick Young with help from Fran Bouchard, Rodney Verrill, and Frank Welch.

The You Can Play project was designed with the mission of “ensuring equality, respect and safety for all athletes, without regard to sexual orientation”. The first video released for the project, which started production in Spring of 2014, includes stories and thoughts on equality direct from athletes within the conference.
