Jarred Latta couldn’t have possibly imagined a better summer.

The 2012 Iola High graduate spent most of his summer working for the Omaha Storm Chasers, the Triple-A affiliate for the defending World Series Champion Kansas City Royals. 

“With the Royals winning the World Series, I knew that anywhere in the organization would be a great experience to not only learn the baseball aspect, but also the business side of sports,” Latta said. “I did day-to-day operations in the front office. I got experience in the ticket office, at the ticket window and calling season-ticket holders; I worked with the promotions group, the marketing group, the advertising group and the corporate sales group. I really was happy to get that experience with a lot of different departments.”
