My name is Joseph Merklin and I am a current Junior originally from Copley, Ohio. I am majoring in
Sports Management, Accounting, and Business Pre-Law, with the primary desire to work in the financial or legal segments of the sports industry. Since beginning at Ohio University, I have developed my leadership experience through my fraternity, Alpha Epsilon Pi, as well as serving on the executive board of the Interfraternity Council. I have also held positions on campus through the athletic department, as well as Russell Athletic. In the future, I aspire to be the CFO or Financial Director of a professional sports team, preferably baseball. The skills I have learned throughout the year with Emerging Leaders will surely increase my confidence and ability to be able to fulfill my aspirations.
