Al Green is all about the “wow factor.”

As the Associate Athletic Director at Florida Southern College, Al is also in charge of External Relations as well. That means whenever someone comes on to campus, Al wants to make them smile.

Whether that’s welcoming opposing sporting teams or coordinating things on move-in day, Al’s face is one that’s easily recognizable and approachable.

It’s all about customer service for Al. Whether it’s a student or a guest, Al makes sure they feel welcome. Al has also built a great reputation throughout the Sunshine State Conference in helping visiting athletic teams feel at home when they’re away.

Al honed his people skills starting at the University of Michigan as a student and athletic trainer, saying the Athletic Director said that everything had to be done at a first-class level.

That philosophy applies to everything Al does, including his time as a volunteer fire fighter for more than 40 years with companies in Kentucky and Florida.

Al goes the extra mile to make people smile, and that’s a big help on move-in day. When parents are dropping their kids off, Al knows it’s a traumatic day and a celebration at the same time. Al plays the role of greeter, making sure that on a very stressful day that everyone knows where to go and that they smile as they go along their way.
