Judy Bernas: Woman Worth Meeting

An NCAA public service campaign emphasizes that student athletes overwhelmingly “go pro in something other than sports,” with the implication that their playing experiences help them in their jobs after they’ve hung up their high tops, skates, or cleats. Judy Bernas works for an NCAA member institution in a non-athletic capacity and feels the games she played growing up have influenced her career. “Sports has so many lessons for all of us -- how to be gracious winners, even more gracious losers, discipline, consistency, commitment, and most importantly, teamwork. The lessons from sports are used in my professional life every day,” said Bernas, who currently serves as the associate dean and chief strategy and communication officer for the TCU School of Medicine in Fort Worth. “I played softball, volleyball and lots of golf,” she said of her sporting activities growing up. Her father was the driving force in her development. “An entrepreneur who started his own company, he was my softball coach. He loved to play golf and taught me how to play. We actually both had holes-in-one on the exact same hole (many years apart) at Encanto Golf Course in Phoenix, AZ. He was a New Yorker by birth and followed football, basketball, and golf religiously. He taught us the importance of putting effort into what you are doing and to shooting for the stars – ‘if you don't do it, someone else will,’” she said. “When I play golf and make a terrible putt, I can still hear him saying, ‘C'mon Judy. Make it count!’” She’s used what her dad taught her for more than just inspiration. “Golf has been important professionally as a way to connect with colleagues and associates. And a little competition never gets in the way of a great partnership!” Judy’s lifelong love of sports did, in fact, lead her to professional opportunities in the industry. “I have served on the Arizona Sports and Tourism Authority and currently serve on the Fiesta Bowl Board of Directors, where I am Chair-elect…
