Asheville will highlight a student-athlete who has achieved success
off the field, course or court. This week we are highlighting David
Parra, a rising senior on the men's soccer team.

Investors. This internship will teach him how to provide customers
with financial recommendations.
On top of his this busy schedule, David will also be assisting the
media staff at UNC Asheville with various projects.
