United Athletes Foundation Executive: STEM Education, FInancial Literacy, and Athlete Unity
Reggie Howard played seven seasons in the NFL for the Miami Dolphins and Carolina Panthers. He is a firm believer that “it takes a village to raise a child” as evidenced by his vision in creating the United Athletes Foundation (UAF). Howard has assembled well-known athletes such as Hank Aaron, Julius “Dr. J” Erving, Jim Brown and Ray Lewis as well as less renown athletes to support the mission of UAF. To date, there are more than 100 professional athletes associated with UAF including active and former NFL, NBA, MLB, WNBA and LPGA members.
Described by PNE founder Guy Troupe as “an innovative game changer for the professional athlete community,” Howard has spearheaded financial literacy programs on Wall Street with the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) and orchestrated a national Hackathon competition sponsored by Microsoft for students from Historically Black Colleges and Universities.
Howard earned a spot as one of five finalists selected to participate in PNE’s Gridiron Game Plans 2015 (formatted similarly to ABC’s Shark Tank) at Super Bowl XLIX. He has participated as a PNE attendee and vendor for seven consecutive years and is spearheading the PNE Roundtable at Super Bowl 50. The roundtable will highlight career opportunities in STEM (science, math, engineering, math) by assembling a panel of C-Suite executives from the Silicon Valley to engage high school, college, active and former NFL football players.
