Alum Touches Base with Saudi Arabian Youngsters

 | 

Daniel Caldwell (Sociology ’04) refined swings, taught pitching mechanics and gave coaches instructions for 46 straight days this spring, often working all day in 120-degree heat as he taught baseball skills and coaching techniques in Saudi Arabia.

But Caldwell, 30, said he learned more than he taught during the six-week session. His experiences in Saudi Arabia were a catalyst for him to return to N.C. State and pursue a master’s in public administration. He is unsure what he will do professionally, but he wants to contribute to society, and he thinks understanding public policy is a good starting place.
